#beginquote# I'd say it depends on the person. I consider myself a "musical" person but I think I'm more suited to certain instruments. For example I tried learning the drums for about a year but then started teaching myself guitar and found I was a lot better at it. Maybe its just because with guitar its fairly easy to get the basics, but then takes a lot longer to actually get any better. Maybe with drums its the other way round, and it takes a long time to start with but is then easier to improve at. I don't know. But I gave up drums after that, because I found I felt I was lot more suited to guitar than I was to drums. I've played the flute for 9 years and I'd say thats a fairly easy instrument compared to many. The clarinet always looks a lot harder, although I've never actually played it. String instruments look as if they could be learnt by anyone. I don't mean that they are easy to play but I imagine it would be easier to
to become good at playing them, whereas with other instruments I think its more important to have a bit of a natural talent for them. Also I'd imagine that once you can play one you can probably learn any other one fairly easily. Brass instruments look easy! I could be wrong, but they don't look hard to learn! I really don't think piano's easy. I've always admired people who can play the piano. I now play a bit, but I've got a long way to go before I'd consider myself good at it! #endquote#
