#beginquote# I think that there is no real HARDEST instrument to play, Theremin is difficult because there are no frets, buttons mouthpieces or strings, you have to rely on spatial awareness. Guitar is difficult because to start off with it hurts, and to be the best guitar player is impossible, as pretty much all the speed boundaries and pitch boundaries of the instrument have been completely broken, although i think it is the best and most fun instrument to play and can imitate other instruments pretty well. Violin and double bass are difficult aswell, the spacing of the notes is hard to figure out and i usually have to memorize certain wood markings on the neck so that i can play the notes! keyboard and piano are the easiest instruments, as they are easily accessible, easy to play any range of notes with, easy to learn and easy to look good with, but kazoo is definitely the easiest virtuoso instrument :P horns can be hard as the tuning and mouth placing is all a bit guess-worky. banjo is difficult because of the complex fingerstyling and required speed, unless you just play chords and everyone hates a talentless hickey with an annoying folk instrument, lmao. Vocals are difficult because you are playing your own body! and keeping that in tune and looking after it is more difficult than many instruments, because you can't keep yourself in a nice case for protection or turn your machineheads when you go out of tune or turn up your volume when you lose your voice! woodwind instruments seem like easy instruments, but i dont think anyone can be good at recorder, no matter how musically talented they are :S yes #endquote#
