Hardest Instruments to Play

121 Triangle

Wow where do I start. Well firstly lets start of with its history. Started by the Illuminati the triangle is propaganda in its purest form. The Illuminati would enslave children do to their darkest deeds and to brainwash them into it their trigger noise was the ping of this malevolent instrument. Galileo Galleli himself created the instrument, because as being a reincarnation of Pythagoras he realised that the equilateral triangle conducted for more evil karma then the right, isosceles or scalene. To this very day children today are still part of this deviant practice. Mainly practiced in Communist countries but also in primary/elementary schools children are forced to "play" the three (hence a triangle and Illuminati) most dark instruments ever created: The recorder, tambourine and the Triangle. However when they "play" the instruments it is actually act which symbolises that they have given up their souls to the Illuminati.

I'm 13 years old and love ...more

I used to go to triangle lessons - I started when I was six years old, but unfortunately ended up quitting my lessons aged 15 because it is such a difficult instrument and it was taking up a lot of my school time and was eating into my social life. Maybe in a few years when I don't have so much going on I may start music lessons again. I hope one day I will finally master the ability to play such a beautiful and complex instrument.

Such a hard instrument. I am currently playing it and just can't the hang of wacking something so delicate with a stick. It traumatises me. I am currently preparing for my grade 100. I can't play for that long as my arms get tired. This is well harder than anything else hear. I am shocked no one has voted for it.

I hit mine once and it broke in half... Okay, maybe I shouldn't have used an axe but that's besides the point... It's super difficult to play if you don't have the right tools and don't know what you're doing.

122 Recorder

Good tonality on a recorder is difficult to achieve. A player must blow at a constant pressure in order to achieve a reasonable pitch. Also, to achieve satisfactory dynamics a user must know his/her instrument very well as a fluctuation in strength of blowing, the pitch can change. It takes a lot of skill to play a recorder well.

I know the recorder gets a lot of bad press, but any plastic instrument played by children under the age of 10 would sound terrible.

This was hands down the absolute easiest instrument I've ever played in my life time!

Not too hard. I played as a kid. Have to be careful not to blow to hard and to cover finger hole but this should definitely be above the triangle!

I thought Singing was the hardest

125 Jug

Dang. I thought that mastering the violin was hard, until I tried master the jug. I ended up quitting and have vowed ever since to never play the jug again. I recently broke the commitment because of the beautiful sound produced from the jug, but even after years of practice, I'm no where close to mastering the great instrument

For real is so hard. I play it on the streets and people are so impressed that I can play it so well. some guy close to me plays the violin and everyone laughs because it doesn't sound good at all compared to my jug so I beat him with it because he deserves it. I love the jug and have vowed to give all my life to the jug. it is beautiful and makes me horny

, you people think the violin Is hard I've been playing since last year and its so easy, and no I'm not Chinese! (not trying to be racist) the jug takes a while, a real long good ole while to master

Bla bla bla the f horn is hardest
