Yeah, when it comes to the subject of playing instruments it is advisable (aka grammatically correct) to use THE, before the name of the instrument played.
I play the guitar and the banjo and the harmonica.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
But you can find some sites in wich they don´t use this rule; firstly musicians don´t always go hand in hand with grammarians...second there are certain structures that don´t "hurt" our eyes at a first sight. So, for example:
- It's important to me to help everyone that want to play guitar
-Lear how to play guitar in an hour...
May not draw attention (raise eyebrows) to the listener/reader while coming from a musician/singer etc. Whereas it would do, if you found it in an essay/school assignment.
