    Transformation of sentence

    Among us, Jane is the only one who plays the guitar.

    I have transformed the sentences using 'except' as follows:

    Except Jane, all of us do not play the guitar.
    All of us except Jane do not play the guitar.

    Are both sentences correct in relation to the original sentence?

    Thanks.

    Re: Transformation of sentence

    Neither is natural. Try: None of us except Jane plays the guitar.
