    Just so you know I'm not biased, I used an online top 10 list to pick the choices for this poll.




    Piano is defo the most difficult, though.

    Speaking as a brass player, I can probably say that the french horn would be very hard to play well as there's a lot more than just blowing (lolbeans) going on.

    Also the violin is extremely hard to nail.

    I found Piano quite easy honestly. I wasn't particularly good at reading music and the theory aspect of it, but the actual playing of the piano was simple enough.

    I think for me a wind instrument would be the hardest. I tried blowing into a trombone once and I couldn't even get a sound out of it, so yeah, probably something along those lines. I voted bagpipes cause I wouldn't even know where to start.

    Cello was really tough for me to get to not sound like a dying seal

    Honestly easiest way to start off with brass is to - and I'm 100% serious - make a fart sound through the mouthpiece.

    All of them

    Piano is the only one I can remotely come close to playing.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I've never seen a piano in a marching band.

    I've actually never really tried to learn an instrument. I've always wanted to play the piano and the drums, but I've never really had the opportunity to learn them.
