Playing guitar is not hard, it is only hard when you play something hard. Pipe organ is harder

Hey everyone! Wanna know a thing? Piano îs harder than organ, because at piano You can play very fast and at organ You can play just very slow. Organ, looks harder than piano, but If You look closely You will be shocked of answer. Bye the way, It says that he is his opinion and we need to respect It, because It takes hours to do a video like this.
What about flute?? this is hardest..
Ayden Butler (3 days ago)
The list is awful enough, but to add on top of it the first example of the violin is holding the violin on the wrong side
John Sanchez (3 days ago)
I play the French horn and you need skills to play that
Richard Jackson (3 days ago)
I don't agree with this. The organ is by far the hardest instrument to play. And you say it's the violin?😅 That's laughable. I'd even put drums above the violin. But the organ is the toughest to learn. Then probably bagpipes
Heiko Berlitz (3 days ago)
They really put Theremin on honorable mentions smh

The violin is literally the easiest string instrument to play
I like how they say if you play the piano you can only sight read music

Organ #1 theramin #2 Violin #3 Piano #4 French horn #5 But mayonnaise is easily the hardest to learn
We in Austria have a "special version" of the akkordion with buttons on both sides they may be quite simmilar but i even knowing this instrument struggled to learn the conventional akkordion where as my brother learned my variant pretty easily with his knowledge of the conventional akkordion

Everyone knows that trombone is the easiest brass instrument to learn except maybe the tuba lol because it has one of the biggest mouth pieces so the embouchure is easy
J. Schoenborn (10 days ago)
#3, I'm surprised you didn't include The Dropkick Murphys or AC/DC (with "It's A Long Way To The Top If You Wanna Rock n' Roll"). One of hardest things of "It's A Long Way To The Top" for AC/DC was synchronising the bagpipes-playing of the late Bon Scott with the guitar-playing of Angus Young. Plus, with the woodwinds like oboe or clarinet, your fingers have to be nimble and accurate and you have to keep blowing without looking down at where your fingers are. Unfortunately, my fingers aren't accurate on guitar: "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy" on clarinet, yes, but the "Peter Gunn" theme on guitar, no. I played clarinet for 6 years and did Jazz Band too in junior high.

4:49 right, first of all: the first song I learned to play was ‘Welcome to the black parade’ and that was because I was bored at 3 am, no knowledge about a piano, I had garage band and I was bored, and I learned that song in one night. Piano isn’t that hard unless it’s like those videos where you need a computer.

No no no the Hurdy Gurdy is the hardest! (A hurdy gurdy is an instruments that is both percussion and string it is played with buttons and a knob that is used as a bow and a loose opening that is used to create back noise and in the old times it was so big it was played by 2 people)
Liam Creasey (12 days ago)
I played both the oboe and violin the oboe is fat harder to play than the violin and French horn# 2 wtf a kid in band played that after switching from a sax and played near perfect after a few months and don’t get me fucking started on the piano and organ

I'm a stringed instrument player. Guitar is the easiest stringed instrument in existence. It's so easy it's crazy. My main instrument is Bluegrass Banjo which is in my opinion the hardest instrument to go from a beginner stage to an intermediate stage

Violin is easy
Terrance R. (13 days ago)
I play French horn it is one of the most difficult now let me explain before you guys bash me I know it has 3 rotors BUUUT getting sound out isn’t that hard but making it sound good is and you have a wide range from very low notes to very high notes since it is alto so you have to use a lot of muscles in your face mostly mouth area though
Samsung MyPlay (13 days ago)
I will try to get a bass guitar, or ask my parents for it. 🎸

Triangle is the hardest instrument to play
Victoria Burroughs (17 days ago)
I truly think trombone is overlooked way more than it should be. I mean, sure french horns and trumpets and other high pitched instruments get a lot of the spotlight due to their melodious and recognizable sounds but seriously trombone is just as hard, if not harder to master than other high pitched instruments. We have frickin slides. We have to remember various slide positions to make different notes and some slide positions, especially 5th position, are extremely hard to pinpoint. Trombone is pretty much a big tuning slide capable of playing really low or really high notes and without the right slide positions and lung capacity, you won't be able to play shit. The trombones in my band are not the best and its not because they dont try. It's because they have trouble remembering the slide positions and playing the high notes that trombones often find themselves playing. I'm not saying other high pitched instruments aren't great. Nor am I saying their instruments are easy either but I just wish trombones as well as low brass instruments like euphonium (baritone) would have more prestigious and important roles in the orchestra as a whole.

I started piano when I was 8.. It isn’t too hard.. If you don’t want to need to develop calluses, I recommend it. By the way, it’s YankoVIC. No H

Number one should've been the recorder
Anthra - X (18 days ago)
Um, i’m not entirely a professional pianist but considering that i learned how to to read notes and the keys in a day or two, i vote the piano as one of the easiest instruments to learn/play.
Slime Boy (18 days ago)
My friends: Piano is the easiest instrument to play.. Me: I cannot even play the simple chords and understand the sheets..
Justin Herrin (19 days ago)
If you’re basing the list on their explanation for oboe then all wood wind instruments are that difficult
Unicorn Rock (19 days ago)
Honestly baritone should be number one
Mike The Turkey (19 days ago)
How the FUCK is violin number one? It’s the easiest instrument to play!
Just Lauren (20 days ago)
I’m in eighth grade and I didn’t really wanna play oboe bc I play clarinet and I was forced to basically lol and I’ve only practiced for like a month and I have a concert in like two weeks but every day I get significantly better
U R M A D (21 days ago)
Guitar is the hardest for me. I'm a pianist or any keyboard just not an organ, the frett i don't get, strumming patterns i can't get right, tuning is hard

Michael Anthony Arce (22 days ago)

Actually that’s the conductors job
Sammy Mugav (23 days ago)
you put the violin in the list but u never mentioned viola, cello, or even bass. I kinda got offended by that because i play viola which it a lot like the violin but its just bigger. You hold and play it the same way it just has different notes and sound. And the cello and bass are equally as hard. The moment you star playing the bass your already shifting
Lethu Mthiyane (23 days ago)
I play piano & guitar What do you play?

Playing the accordion is hard. Sax, harp, tabla, Organ, violin, bagpipes...those all seem quite hard to me as a musician. Drums too definitely.
Van Slam (26 days ago)
People hate on drums saying that they are easy. They are easy to learn a little of, but not to be really good at.
