missytootsweet Posted January 12, 2011 Share Posted January 12, 2011 Sometimes I wonder if I could back in time and learn an instrument what would be the easiest/hardest to learn and master? I'm talking say, as a teenager. These are the choices I would be selecting from: the electric lead(?) guitar, the bass guitar, keyboards, or the drums. Here's my guesses. I would think the stringed intruments would be easiest because you wouldn't have to know much about reading music or keeping time but must have dexterity in your hands and a good ear. Of course, I'm a leftie so maybe it's not as easy for us (dexterity wise). The bass is probably the easiest, after all it only has 4 strings. Keyboards would probably be pretty difficult because I've read many good keyboad players like JPJ and Rick Wakeman were "classically trained". That sounds hard and time intensive! The drums would seem the hardest to me. I'm sure there is a whole special technique to it other than hitting them straight-away. I've heard the terms "drum fills and drum rolls" and even though not sure what that all means it sounds hard and yet very intricate too at the same time. Sooo......Since this is the musicians corner could you tell me if my guesses are even in the ballpark? thanks .....missy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
