Defiantly guitars, I mean let's try to make this realistic, who really plays the bagpipes?
Wow I just laughed really hard, you are hilarious.. I know this comment has no point but just had to put that out there!
The most flexible instrument in the world. Whilst other instruments such as bagpipes and violin are beautiful in their own right, electric guitar can master sounds like rock, jazz, blues, classical sounds etc... Although I do like bagpipes... I respectfully crank my guitar and max distort in your face
The electric guitar can do so much. From Jazz to Heavy metal, clean sound to super distorted. You can create your own sound and style. You
Can play really simple, fun riffs or technical solos. It's mind-boggling how many different ways there are to play. You can bend, tap, use the whammy bar (if you have one), scratch etc. And don't even get get me started on different effect pedals and tunings. Basically, the electric guitar is the best instrument ever.
The electric guitarist can play such an eclectic array of music, from country to blues, speed metal, whatever. It's versatility stands alone.V 192 Comments
It sounds beautiful! It's wonderful!
I play piano, and it's very fun, simple, and, once you've been playing it for a few years, people think you're awesome.
This is the one that sounds beautiful and awesome! The songs sound so nice! The piano is the instrument that gives everyone the happiness and joy EVERYDAY!
You can completely cover a song with the piano in an way that no other instrument can. With both hands it is possible to play harmonies and melodies at the same time and you can stretch the way you play to cover many different genres.V 342 Comments
Drums gives a rhythm to every piece of music. The beat is very powerful, and the it makes every song sounds even better.
John Deacon is the most underrated person in the industry. He simultaneously created some of the greatest songs of all time while being the most underrated player of all time. How does that happen? The only person that even compares to that level of unfairness is George Harrison.
Ah wait this is the Drum section. Roger Taylor falsetto, Ringo great dummer
The no doubt coolest instrument.
Drums give rhythm and sound to every song - IceCreamV 137 Comments
The saxophone is different. Sure, you meet many people who can get beautiful tones on the clarinet or flute, play the drums or bagpipes, but the saxophone speaks for itself. The electric guitar might be able to do a lot, and classical instruments like the violin, viola or cello, but the sax (alto, in particular) is so satisfying, relaxing and lovely. It's not about difficulty at all, for example, do you ever feel hesitant about getting out your instrument and playing it? The sax isn't like that. Never. It's obviously not hard to see how it can capture so many people's hearts. I used to play classical, and felt that as much as I liked it, I wanted to try jazz. And I did. And it made me realise that whilst I had been complaining about the task of practising, I had been missing out on so much that is so useful, and brings joy to people. So to all you saxophone players out there like me - keep on playing and don't give up. The saxophone has a world of its own, of jazz, waiting to be ...more
The saxophone is jazzy, can be loud, soft, and can sound like a brass or woodwind instrument. It is the instrument that balances out brass and woodwind. This is why I like it so much.

The best. End of story.V 173 Comments
Bass guitar is probably the most underrated and underrespected instruments out there. And it's also one of the best sounding! Electric guitarists get all the fame because they make it look easy but the fact is it IS easy (compared to bass or acoustic). Bass players on the other hand, deserve far more respect than they get. If you disagree that bassists get disrespected just go to The Uncyclopedia and look up bass guitar.
I play the bass guitar. The bass guitars a cool instrument that you'd like to play!
Poor John Deacon is so underrated and really, all of them are, but he is my favorite. If I had to play an instrument, this would be it. But I already play drums. (I am not that good. ) But anyway, I REALLY love the sound, it sounds so cool... Listen to "Invisible Man" by Queen, and it sounds AWESOME. Also, "Crazy Little Thing Called Love". BASS FOREVER
Far more important than electric guitar. A band can survive with just bass and drums, guitars, keyboards or even saxophones are merely the decoration on the musical cake that is the rhythm section. - Christian.H.MillsV 61 Comments
Good luck and I play violin and it is so so fun I love it but I reckon violin could of made it to the top 3 but I don't get why the bag pipes are number 1 no body I know really has a bagpipe or even play the bagpipes! But I see their point
This instrument can make very amazing and beautiful masterpieces
Most exquisite and beautiful sounding instrument ever heard. True heavenly music to my ears. - TopTenTed
Violin is good accompaniment in heavy music, melodic metal, even hiphop. Dracula's favorite instrument.V 154 Comments
Love the sound of the ACOUSTIC GUITAR...!
Absolutely. It's harder than bass and electric, so it produces a clearer sound. I play instruments from all the categories and guitar is easily the best.
I like the acoustic too, but the sound on some songs with the electric guitar (second solo in Comfortably Numb in mind) just sound so awesome, it is hard to describe the feeling hearing solos like that. - Stalin
All Guitars to me are some of the worlds best instruments
I love the acoustic guitarV 68 Comments
I love trumpet. I have a trumpet of my own. Awesome instrument.
I play the trumpet in my school band. It is a great instrument that everyone might enjoy. - MrZebra24
Trumpets are brilliant instruments. They are harder to play than anything listed above and better.
Trumpet is the bomb in any latin band. It's also important in any big/show/stage band. It can also can also rock a seedy jazz bar. Honestly it's like singing just better. =DV 100 Comments
Keyboards are practically the same as pianos and they are more fun because you can try out different sounds, if you can play the key board you can play anything!
It's a retro version of the piano with a lot of different settings!
They make most of the other best interments in one. I love it more than even a guitar. I recommend you try a keyboard because I love it hope you will to
I love to play keyboards as I used it to play since I was 5 years oldV 24 Comments
The clarinet is the best instrument ever. It is right in the middle of the flute and saxophone yet is small and lightweight. It has the largest range of notes music styles and dynamics of any woodwind instrument. It is also the most important instrument to any concert band's sound. The clarinet has the largest range of different members of its family. The clarinet can be used in marching bands, symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles, jazz bands, big bands, latin jazz, rock n roll, pop, commercial music, country, samba, or salsa music. The clarinet Iis one of the most expressivec and flexible instruments ever created, having a tone and range closest to the human voice. It can sound expressive as a solo instrument or as a section. CLARINETS ARE AMAZING.
The clarinet is the pathway to learning basically any woodwind instrument. When you learn the clarinet, that makes it easy to learn any saxophone, flute, any other kind of clarinet, etc. With the clarinet there is no limit as to how high your range goes - you can define your range by how far you are willing to go, which is a unique and great quality. The clarinet sounds beautiful and has a full, dark, and rich tone. You can also play a variety of different styles of music on the clarinet. Although the clarinet embrouchure is perhaps the hardest to develop correctly, the instrument is otherwise not terrible to learn. I fell in love with the clarinet, have you?
Clarinet is for Male Musicians Instrument, more than 50 notes to play and a lot of different combinations and almost limitless styles of breathing life through the mouth piece. Slower or Faster, Intervals far apart or just continuations less often with a rest. There is also trills, sharps, flats and natural notes plus stratagems. Can also jam out the gut feeling or mood are in at the time and the sound ends out normal anyways. A Beautiful Way to Jump in a Musical Mode of Expression and at the end more than not is real Satisfied of a Feeling Remaining With. Good invention, and one of many variations and models of the Clarinet are still to be aught about. The future is always bright with clarinet, hope the wild does not feel poor of such a beautiful musical instrument creating the time to feel real good about music and what the soul or heart might desire as well. - iliescu
I play the Clarinet and it is awesome. I originally wanted the flute but I could not blow into it so I got the Clarinet and I love it!V 78 Comments
Flute definitely deserves to be on this list because it is the hardest of the woodwind instruments to master. 60% of a flute players air doesn't even make it into the instrument. If you have ever made a noise by blowing across a beer bottle... It is way harder. I play this instrument in a symphony setting and get paid more than most of the other instrumentalists.
I play the flute in my sixth grade band its not even hard to play you just have to memorize the fingerings and you need to have good fast air in order to play like a professional flutist.
When played properly it is able to convey so much. Low notes are full and beautiful, like a river. High notes are clear and crystalline. It's able to be pretty, jazzy, slow and soulful, quick and impressive. It moulds so well with andcan be very complimentary towards other instruments (and with vocals), but also due to its impressive higher register it can stand out from other instruments :) (maybe I'm biased because I play the flute lol)
I would put the flute over any woodwind instruments. It is definitely the hardest woodwind instrument to play. It doesn't have a reed which makes it harder to play because it requires more air, not to mention the fingerings. But once you've mastered the flute, it is an amazing instrument to play.V 105 Comments
It's here already - AdamDestructorJr.
I love all guitars so I couldn't jut chose electric or acoustic, they are fun to play and are used is so many genres. I love the guitar
I respect all instruments and musicians because it takes skill to play any instrument but with guitars you can play so many different types of music and they have had a huge influence in modern music.
(Yes I know ELP is my favorite band, and they didn't have guitar. )
BUT FOR PETE'S SAKE THIS IS THE GUITAR WE ARE TALKING ABOUT. THIS IS POSSIBLY THE MOST IMPORTANT INSTRUMENT IN MUSIC IN THE LAST TWO CENTURIES.
That's not an instrument ya dingus
NOT aN InSTRuMeNT
Vocals are the easiest instrument to play. To start, just sing!
Need to be very talented but your body is sadly not an instrument... - Rusty665V 16 Comments
The synth is the future of music. It represents the untapped potential of the imagination. A good analogue synth is not used as an emulation of other instruments, but rather as a means to creat never before heard sounds. It can be used as the lead, backup, and vocals of a song. At the same time. A true symbol of human ingenuity.
Not a big fan of synthesizers, especially when they're used as the lead instrument. They were originally used to harmonize with the lead instruments to produce nice harmonies and add something extra to make the music sound more complete. Then around the 80s, bands decided "Hey, let's take this background instrument and make it a lead instrument while taking the old lead instruments and either pushing them to the back or getting rid of them altogether." Synthesizers killed music by replacing musical instruments with machines made to emulate music. - Aweso
You actually have to 'Create Your Own Sounds' to make the most outta a Synth.
The synthesizer is the ONLY instrument where YOU get to create the sound it produces. Guitars, Drums, Pianos, and every other single instrument all sound relatively similar in some regards. For synthesizers, that's a different story.V 19 Comments
The cello is an amazing instrument, that has the perfect tone. It has a sound that no band instrument can compete with. A cello can accompany virtually any instrument, while it can also play beautiful solos. This instrument, is the best instrument ever invented.
The cello allows me to express myself in ways that I could have never imagined. It has taken me places I could have never dreamed of going, and it has given me the chance to see things that I had never noticed, both musical and non-musical.
The cello will always be the best instrument, without a doubt.
Definitely better than bagpipesV 87 Comments
Ukulele are the best!
It sounds happy, which I think other instruments offtenly lack, it's high pitched so it lightens up the song
The ukulele is awesome instrument to learn and is really fun to play along to songs and sing with as well. It makes an amazing sound and easily cheers up anyone on a very bad day! It is easy too learn too, and is very good if you want to learn the guitar and definitely easier to learn if you already know how to play the guitar. UKULELE = TOTAL OWNAGE
The ukulele is such a versatile instrument. Hands down the best instrument to play on chill and relaxing days. It relieves one's stress with just a couple chords. While you can't get the raw power of an electric guitar, you get more of melodic, comforting sound. Definitely belongs in the top three, not rank 15 (how did the bag pipes get a better score haha)V 48 Comments
I love bagpipes they are so nice and so under credited! I also love the harp, violin and viola but bagpipes are literally my favourite instrument that describes me a bit
I've played several instruments but the bagpipes, by far, take #1 (and deserves a much better picture on this site). No other musical instrument has the history going back thousands of years because, evokes more emotion from its listeners, takes such a dedication to practice and tuning to play well with its complicated anatomy which is sensitive to so many environmental factors, has such a unique, intense and beautiful sound, is mentioned several times in the Bible, was played solo on the front lines at war time and the Spartans used several in band form in battle, still widely played today with competitions throughout the world for both young and old and players are increasing, etc.. I played jazz trumpet through college, greatly admire the influence and diversity of guitar and piano, and highly respect all instruments. However, no other has these many unique qualities, history and overall impact on society while still being played by young and old. Bagpipes #1.
Should be number 1
I quit playing guitar because it's boring and every pimple faced high school freshman plays "in a band" I took on bagpipe and it is the most wonderful instrument ever! It takes heart, dedication, practice, patience, persistence, maturity, and more. To the fellow who commented "who really plays bagpipes? " Thousands of talented people play world wide, there is even competitions and different grades of players. Bagpipes are an ancient instrument that have seen its share of war and peace time, competition and just playing for self fulfillment and enjoyment. I find it a bit disheartening to see the celestial bagpipe ranked below the cereal box instrument know as the ukulele.V 137 Comments
I was at a wedding once and at the reception an attractive thirtysomething woman was playing the harp. I was very drunk and stood about five yards away from her, mesmerized, The next thing I remember, I was wrestling my second cousin on the lawn. He had heard I slandered him and was giving me what for. The woman harp player got up and broke up the fight. I love the harp.
Ahh the most beautiful instrument to look at and listen to! My heart aches now
Angelic and beautiful... harp should definitely be higher on the list!
The harp is the sexiest thing everV 9 Comments
Nobody ever gives the trombone any credit but it is without a doubt the best instrument. It has a sound like no other as it is the closest sound to the human voice except at least I think better than any vocalist out there. The trombone is just as versatile as any instrument on this list and also makes sound no other brass instrument can recreate because of the slide. I can make my trombone sound like a trumpet, I can make it sound like a tuba, I can make it sound like a French horn, but god damn nothing can sound like a trombone.
I am the only trombone player in fifth grade band. The world was a better place when the trombone was invented. The trombone has 7 slides which is why I picked trombone in the first place! I have one question I want you to answer in the comments below. What is your favorite instrument? That is what we should be asking yourself every-single day. Mine is of course as you can tell the trombone. Now ask your selves that question every-single day till you die not even. Stay strong and stick with the trombone. WE NEED MORE TROMBONE PLAYERS IN THIS WORLD!. If not a trombone player become one NOW!V 59 Comments
The best instrument ever! It doesn't get enough credit.
Very nice deep sound and the instrument does not get enough credit for being in music. The viola is used in almost every pop song that features any stringed orchestral instruments.
BEST INSTRUMENT EVER! It has mellow tones, not squeaky like violins, and not too low like a cello or bass. It's perfect because it's right in the middle. Plus, violas have the prettiest harmonies EVER! This instrument really does NOT get enough credit at all.V 39 Comments
Most of the people would say the best 3 musical instruments is the Piano, Violin & Guitar. But for me I disagree for this. Because I feel this is unfairly. Due to our world had many types genre of music such as classical, jazz, rock & pop. In here I would using Classical & Jazz(include popular music) to describe which is the best 3 musical instruments in classical & jazz. Due to some of musical instruments are good in Jazz some are good in classical way. In classical music the top 3 musical instruments is the pipe organ, violin & classical guitar. And the Jazz music would be the Piano, Soprano Saxophone & Archtop Guitar(Jazz Guitar).
By far the Pipe Organ is really the best musical instrument in the classical music. I have listen both musical instruments(Organ & Piano) performs in classical music I found out the Organ richer & glorify sound that the Piano is can't be conquer. So I think the Piano is more suitable for modern music not for classical.
It's the COOLEST
By far the organ. You can get every sound you can think of out of a pipe organ, and it has the power to make you laugh, jump for joy, cry, warm your heart, and make you want to dance. In a band you need multiple instruments, same with an orchestra, but an organ can be alone to play the most majestic music a person can hear. The pipe organ by far.
Lets be fair, the organ is the Morgan Freeman of instruments. It is overwhelmingly powerful when played right, and makes you know it as well. What any instrument can play, the pipe organ can do it better, and can even give the silliest songs an epic sense.V 9 Comments
I had a harmonica years ago. I used to keep it in my front right pocket. One day, while I was walking down a dark alley, a thug jumped me and wrestled me to the ground. He went for my wallet, and I took out my harmonica and hit him in the side of the head with it. He got up, staggered, and ran off. Thank God for the harmonica.
Not the hardest to play, but has an amazing sound. - Stalin
It's great for the blues! If you're looking to play some great but sad song then the harmonica is all yours
This instrument is handy. You can play anywhere, and anytime.V 16 Comments
Outside of the us the entire world uses this instrument. The accordion can also be used as a one man band, who doesn't like it?
The world music instrument, par excellence, central to dance traditions everywhere. The accordion can be played very, very simply or with incredible sophistication. The United States, with a few local exceptions, may be the only country in the world that doesn't take the accordion seriously. That is changing but, in the meantime, the accordion is still exotic enough in most settings to be cool!
Probably the most misunderstood instrument out there, when really it has more potential than many think. It isn't just for Serbian folk music. So please people, understand that the accordion is just like any other instrument and stop hating it.
You can have a Melody, then a bass line accompaniment. Then you can accompany your self at the same time! What's not to like?!V 3 Comments
You know why no one takes the xylophone seriously? It's because the only types that are ever seen are baby toys. It is so much more than how it often appears to us. Also, it's great to make and makes a fun project!
I love xylophones! They sound like skeletons!
I have a xylophone
Those sound pretty and are easy to play.V 1 Comment
The French horn is the best because of many reasons... It is the connector between woodwind and brass, it looks cool, it's the longest, it has the best tone, etc. Also, for all you woodwind players that think that nobody uses the horn, look up John Williams. If you don't know who that is, get a life
This is the best intrument in a band. No doubt.
The French horn is THE BEST instrument ever! It has a rich, mellow sound, and a golden tone that brightens the sound of the band. It is not rich and dark like other bass instruments; rather, it has a rich, bright sound that blends with bands and, if played well, does nice solos. Sure, other instruments can switch notes quicker, and the woodwinds sound really exotic, but the Horn has an unreal, inverted tone that sounds magical. No wonder it plays the theme of Harry Potter! Its tone is rich, yet very clear, especially in the higher register. It has a unique, rich sound, with a delicate feel, making it good for harmonies. It blends well with woodwinds and brass alike, making it quite compatible. Baritone and Sax can mimic its sound a bit, but will never match the Horn's pure, friendly tone. The French Horn is by far the best instrument.
... Played the melody in almost all John williams' pieces, like harry potter, jurassic park and pirated of the Caribbean,
shut up other insrtunmetns
A beautiful instrument that is popular enough that everyone knows what it is (Because of Legend of Zelda) but rare enough that barely anyone can play it well, increasing the joy in playing this instrument. In addition, because of its unique shape, it is the only instrument (other than the glass harp) that produces a pure tone. This means that the sound of this instrument is free of overtones, and even if overtones are present, they are far higher and quieter than the fundamental, giving it a unique, and by definition, pure, sound. Because of all of this it is a truly magical experience to play this beautiful and mysterious instrument.
It was in Zelda so it rocks
One of the first instruments ever constructed, capable of quenching nations, ruining weddings, and angering windmill workers. Definitely the best instrument of all time.
I voted for this because Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of the greatest games of all time. I also like A Link To The Past, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword!V 8 Comments
The tuba affords the big fat male nerd an opportunity to be part of something special in high school. Without the tuba, many big fat male nerds would be at a loss for extracurricular activities.
Best instrament by far
The Tuba is just as capable as any other brass instrument, even if it is large, heavy, or cumbersome. This being said, I believe it has a beautiful unique sound that resonates with everyone's hearts; literally, as it can mean the world's difference in a concert hall, as to whether or not the bass line is ever heard above much louder instruments. Tubas are not easy to play, for it takes skill, as all instruments do, to be able to produce several octaves' worth of notes with three or more buttons and the human soul.V 20 Comments
Without a doubt. - Solariser
Isn't this just acoustic
I can never get enough of the sound of classical guitar. It's so romantic and calming. I love it!
Great Instrument it sounds great but the electric is betterV 2 Comments
They are the best drums
It's not just boom you most likely just hit it with a gun and said "hoo col that sounds like that gun I smashed it with" played well and it sounds like a tropic heaven in the ocean of the stars and space with godly notes flying though the Milky Way.
Boom! " I love that sound
The power of the Electric Guitar and the Violin put into one, twice the Awesomeness!
I love my electric violin. It produces such deep sounds that a normal violin can not. It looks awesome and it is. Go Electric Violin!
Seriously, ever heard bryson Andres play.
There is a vio, in in every genre of music ever, you hear violin everyday, you don't notice it, but it is the worlds most popular instrument.
In my opinion, the upright bass is the most fun, most classy, most challenging, and best sounding instrument of all time. The lack of frets creates a a rich, deep sound that cannot be matched by any other instrument, and it can be used in any genre of music. One can replace a bass guitar for an upright bass with a pickup in a rock or heavy setting, but it is much harder for an electric bass to fit in to a classical or jazz setting.
A very awesome sounding instrument! Not to mention it has different ways of being played! Plucked, Bowed, or Slapped, it is definitely one of the most underrated but amazing instruments ever made!
The Stand up bass can be and where from dark and powerful to soft and beautiful. When you play you can't help to be content. People always forget about it because tradition places it in a beat keeper role.
Sounds deep and rich, gives you satisfaction when you play. I like cavantina on double bass.
Boom! It is like a giant nuclear explosion. It is also hard to learn how to do the notes
It should certainly top the list. the music emanating from sitar is divine and holy and surely everybody will agree with me once they have listened to sitar being played
It's a different version of our guitar! It's cool
Why isn't sitar topping the list? People should listen to sitar first.
ALL TIME BEST INSTRUMENT EVER!V 7 Comments
There are so many things to like about double bass, and it is without question my favorite instrument to study and play. It's so different from violin, viola and cello despite looking similar; it requires much more shifting due to its size, it is tuned in fourths rather than fifths (probably for easier shifting), and gets exclusive access to a special overhand "German" style bow. The double bass is so unique in fact that it is actually related less to the violin family and more to the viola the gamba family which died off in the baroque era. For those concerned that bass may be "too simple" for them, I would encourage them to study bass thumb position (the register above the shoulders to the bridge uses the thumb) and listen to some of the master solo works from the likes of Giovanni Botessini and Sergei Koussevitzky, works that take advantage of the instrument's entire register.I know as a double bass student, I have my work cut out for me for the rest of my life, and I wouldn't want ...more
There is something wrong with the fact that my favorite instrument of all time is number 33. I've played every other string instrument plus guitar and ukulele and none other has taken me like this bass has. Of course, I owe a special thanks to amazing Hunter Allen. He made my bass career full out.
I have played the double bass for six years in a Orchestra and it is beautiful. Most of the time it under appreciated since we almost never get solos, but nothing beets the unique deep sound (or the arm work out).
The bass is my life, period. I would not be the person I am without. So, vote for what you want but, keep this in mind. The bass has changed a life.V 4 Comments
The Balalaika is the best instrument ever in my opinion! So many emotions can be expressed through just three strings. It seems to have been given a bad name because it is a Russian instrument. It is not seen enough in music other than Russian folk and classical. Unfortunately, it is an unappreciated instrument.
Having tried the clarinet and bass clarinet, I can say that the bass clarinet is harder to get familiar with, especially the high notes. However, once mastered, it allows the player to fulfill almost any role in an ensemble, and keep a melodious tone the whole time. The lower notes are sonorous and riveting, and the higher notes can have the voice-like tone of a clarinet or the flair of a clarinet used in klesmer. Also, I think the piano and cello should be even higher on this list.
The Bass Clarinet is physically a beautiful instrument. But nothing is as good as playing a rich mellow low note the shakes your mouth in a very funny way. The Bass Clarinet can also play high notes beautifully. Once mastered the bass clarjnet can play good repertoires, orchestral excerpts, Etudes, and any other types lf songs. Once you master it it becomes aa awesome instrument
I think it should be in the top five along with the bass clarinet
I play the bass clarinet and its great!V 2 Comments

There was a retarded kid in our high school band who was given a triangle so that he could feel like he was participating in something special. Every so often the patronizing conductor would point at him, and that was his cue to strike the thing. He used to smile every time he struck the thing, The happiness that goofy little kid experienced was something that truly touched me.
I love the triangle... One of the few instruments I can play other than the piano. It's really funny when you hear someone play it really good even though it's like a really easy instrument.
Damn this is the hardest instrument ever to play. It challenges your brain and takes a tremendous amount of skillz. I mean these guys are other than football players and are in better shape then Weight Lifters! GO TRIANGLES! - God_Potato
One of the divine instrument. critical to play but good at color variations and useful in the church.V 2 Comments
The Baritone Horn is really underrated. Always overshadowed by the trumpet and clarinet players, still has a smooth and low sound. The only reason I think it's all the way up here is how unknown it is.
Person A: I play the Baritone in my band, mom.
Mom: Huh? What's that?
The baritone is the most under rated instrument and know barely know even though it is a beautiful instrument and makes almost the exact same sound as the trombone and that well known.
Been playing it for 5 years, and is an important instrument in the band, as well as fantastic for solos
The best instrument in the band ensemble! Great for smooth solosV 7 Comments
It's simple and silly
I play it even though I get bullied because I play so much instruments. But Bluegrass is a true good one! I should say if the banjo was an orchestra stringed instrument, the banjo would be the cello.
"I love the banjo because it's aussie and I think its reminds me of power and determination I've been learning the banjo since I was 3 years old I love and it was the only thing I played with".
"Ever since I started I've always dreamed of being a banjo superstar in a wonderful instrument and it also makes me think of my family of Australia"
Banjos have some of the most potential an instrument can possess only second to guitar. They originated in the appalachian mountains and are incredible. Sadly, they have gone down in popularity due to a negative stigma against appalachians. Nowadays only old folks can play them (well). It is making a comeback due to Mumford and sons but locals still haven't embraced it again. Please come back banjo.
The banjo is an amazing instrument!V 6 Comments
The Mandolin is very cool. If you like the violin, the guitar, the bass and the lute, then you will 100% like the mandolin. It is lightweight, fun, and just listening to it will give you goosebumps of being in the middle ages fighting in a huge war between good and evil. What more could you ask for, I mean Triangle? Seriously?
Very fun to play and relatively easy to learn, plus you can get a sweet beginner's instrument for a song. From old timey tunes to Bach, this instrument is great for either solo or backup. Plus there are actually mandolin orchestras out there. Seriously! The group I played in performs the Christmas portion of Handel's Messiah every year at Christmastime. And talk about portable! I used to practice mine every day during the commute to/from work. On the ferry. One time a guitarist sat across from me and we jammed the entire way home. Need I say more?
"because there's something so feminine about a mandolin, the way they feel, the way that they ring, just to see slender fingers moving so quickly, made this boy want to sing"---Jimmy Buffett

A band without a tambourine is like Christmas without presents. Women look extremely sexy playing them, and the sound they make is heavenly. I think that the tambourine is a blessing from some higher power, placed on Earth so that we mortals can experience joy, and celebrate life,
Great sound. It has a ringing sensation
I have a best friend who plays a cornet and she loves it. It does not require much effort but it makes a wonderful loud sound.
Basically a trumpet and ultra hard to learn, sounds like a foghorn at times!
Best instrument in the world
10,000,000,000 times better than a trumpet
I love the sound they make.
I have only ever met 1 person in my life who plays bongo drums and is actually good at it. I think this instrument is hard because I couldn't keep a beat to save me life
Easy to play it is a instrument if you cannot get a hang of the drums you play the bongo's all you have to to is hit it with your nuckels and palm and job dune
Easy to leard but sure hard to master.
I play Erhu and violin, why this far down I don't know. Erhu is hands down the best instrument, however not many people play it.
Damn this is far down the list. I was beginning to think I was going to have to add it myself.
Great instrument. Soft and mournful tone, beautiful.
It's beautiful! And it can mimick the sounds of lots of animals.V 1 Comment
I like all dulcimers they make a beautiful sound and can play old and new songs. YOU can play them in a band or alone. Their cool and are tough too so you will get a challenge and its original too so people will think its cool that you play these things
Piccolo is my favorite character in dragon ball z
Hard to play a lot harder then the flute the reason is that the keys are smaller then the flutes and it makes it hard to play
How is this so low? Just listen to Slipknot's (Sic) or Linkin Park's A Place For My Head. Turntables are such a cool instrument, especially in genres like Nu-Metal; if I'm ever in a band, I will make sure that someone is playing turntables - Lem
Turntablism is an art of music and takes years to prefect. Not like these controllers that find the beats for you. Old school turntablism is like a craft and everyone is unique in the sounds that they produce when playing a turntable. Yes it's a musical instrument. Probably one of the most important instruments every.
