I sing, play guitar, bass, a little keyboard (if I only practiced), ukulele, plus I write, record, and produce my own songs.  I also write a cappella choral music and a little organ music, and a little choral and organ music.

Here's one of my modern-rock oriented numbers, called "Drive."  It's a home recording.  I play everything on it and programmed the drums.

Here's a set of four pieces for a cappella men's choir, sung by a guy I know in Germany (multi-tracked).

I actually don't honk my own horn that often, but this was on topic.  I'm a skeptic and a musician (by nature and training, not by trade), although I don't necessarily write music about skepticism.  I just write and play because I love doing it.

Besides, without any self-promotion, no one notices what you're doing.  I find it better to just put it out there and see if anyone connects with it.  Music is a great way to build bridges between people.

Wish. The only thing I play is an MP3 player, though I've been known to be pretty handy on the CD player as well.

The drumkit is my main instrument, but I can play a teeny bit of guitar as well. I've been playing drums for 15 years now.

I play picc and flute, but haven't really gone anywhere with it.  I've also managed to make a sound on my brother's tenor sax before.  :P
