Other instruments we play? 

What other instruments do we play? How do they mesh with flamenco guitar? I had a flamenco guitar at 17; it was age 29 before I got a five string banjo. The facility of the right hand on flamenco did help in advancing on the banjo, but most folks said my banjo style was a "little different". The music played was a little different too.

Interesting topic.

We bought a piano 2 years ago. Mainly for my daughter. But my wife plays too.

I wouldn't say I can play it, but I definitely have a go and my musical knowledge from guitar playing certainly helps. I can bluff many songs by ear and sing along playing a few chords.
Make up a few silly songs for the children.

Can also twiddle about and make some kind of songs that I think are pretty cool. Seems also the rythymn and finger dexterity from guitar certainly helps that too.

Trying to do palmas and singing.

Will sell the Yamaha P45 soon for lack of time and cash.

I've played Tabla (Indian Instrument) for a brief period when I was younger

Chances are you've seen a flamenco show with a tabla, Paco himself was accompanied by Tabla quiet a few times

I play the chromatic harmonica. Even before I start play guitar.
Play it seldom now, but now and than I take it out of the box

I started playing electric guitar at 15 or 16. I took lessons and studied. I went on the road full time at 21 and at 26 I started with flamenco. I'm going to turn 66 in a few weeks and rarely pull out an electric guitar. I am going to play a gig with a band that I played with for ten years in the 80's later this year. It's their 45th anniversary of being a working band. Had some wild times in that group.

None really, though I would like to have the time and learn to play another instrument.
But I do have a cajon, and a chromatic harmonica, played a bit of both but never really learned.
