Musical Post Again

In the next four months, our bassist will leave the island for the UK. My music career / rock band life will soon be put to a temporary halt, and that gives me time to study and learn to play a new instrument, may it be the actual instrument or a portable instrument from guitar center keyboards shop. I have done this many times back in high school, and I have no problem doing "self-study" again. I'm sure there are loads of resources online to become a better amateur musician.
