#beginquote# I have been playing the horn (it isn't french!) for a number of years and haven't been having too much difficulty. However, as it has been pointed out before, the number of notes that can be played on the open instrument are far greater on the horn than on the trumpet, for example, giving one a higher probablilty of playing an incorrect note. Starting on the third space C (for the horn) it's nearly possible to play a scale (it goes C-D-E-F-G-A-B flat-C) on only the open horn. Probably higher--but my lips can't handle that!! Like all other brass instruments, you will be fatigued by playing high notes and for extended periods of time. Don't attempt both at once, FYI. Also being a pianist, I agree somewhat that it is a fairly easy instrument to learn, but it is also difficult to play very well, as is every other instrument. Any idiot can sit at the piano and plunk out a few notes, but there exists some literature that can be played by no one short of professional training. #endquote#
