Top 10 Best String Instruments
Guitar is the greatest instrument ever. Chords, melodies, picking, strumming, rhythm, lead. There is such a wide range of what you can play on guitar from the calm acoustics of Johnny Cash to the orgasm-inducing sounds of The White Stripes to the dirty grunge of Nirvana to the sophisticated riffs of Franz Ferdinand and Pink Floyd. The uses are limitless.
Firstly... You should love the instrument you play... Because when you love it it will love you and you will make a wonderful duet... However, every single instrument has its own sound and music... But I PLAY CLASSICAL GUITAR! I'm a beginner and I think that guitar could take the place of any other musical instrument... But if you are playing another instrument, keep on playing it because it won't be fun if the whole world played guitar.
Oh and I love VIOLIN and GUITAR! Fortunately, I play guitar.
Not only string instrument, but guitar is undoubtedly the king of all the musical instruments! It provides the peace of mind like no other; it's easy to use and with its great variety it can make any kind of song...from classical to rock and roll to hip hop! It represents the word 'music'. So hands down, guitar is THE BEST. Thank you.
The sound is just lovely and it doesn't do super high pitched, irritating sounds and ugly stuff. It's just so soothing and calm! I may have never played a harp but I know it is good. Wish I had it...
It just takes you to an alternate universe when you here the beautiful sound.
Okay fine, harps sound like angels descending from the sky!
The violin is the best instrument because it has a way of expressing music like no other instrument can. Even out of the string instruments, I would say that it is the best because it has a rich, smooth sound and a little uniqueness that just makes it the best. Expressing emotions and such are very easy to do on the violin, as the force of the bow, the position you are in, and the way you finger the strings (harmonics, pizzicato, etc.) can very easily change the feel of a certain piece of music. All in all, I would say that the violin is the best because of the expressions, and tones of the violin.
The ONLY reason guitar has the top spot is because it is now more popular than violin...and also more accessible. There are now far more guitar players than there are violin players, probably because guitar is much easier to play as a beginner. It takes much more practice to coax beautiful music on the violin, but a worthy pursuit to be sure. There is just no other instrument quite like it for the soloist, and it is truly the greatest stringed instrument of all time.
This instrument sounds incredibly distinct and sometimes rather eerie, nothing compares to it
What the heck is it? Literally never heard of it before. Just wanted to put a comment 'cause it was empty.
Cellos are perfect for tall people like me. Bass is too big, viola and violin are too small. Cellos you always sit down. They are not that high and not that low. I think they are perfect... And they are sometimes called "the key of the orchestra." They do not sound unstable like band instruments, but I feel like you can control Cellos throughly.
It is my first year leaning a string instrument. I started with violin, but then I realized that the violin is not the instrument for me. It has to much pitch. Bringing a cello places make it more convenient but it it is worth it. I like cello songs like pavane, ode to joy. I also like YO YO MA. Cello is truly a good instrument.
The deep soulful voice of the cello just melts me. It's so emotive and has a beautiful range that can be low and rich and also reaches relatively high melodies. Doesn't hurt your ears to listen to like the violin and doesn't sound too low and dark as the bass sometimes can. My perfect instrument - love at first sound!
I am a Bassist now. I started in my early childhood as a keyboardist, all the way through to senior secondary school. I love the double-bass (aka upright bass) and also the acoustic/electric bass guitar. Most people would agree how much of an impact the bass will make to a song that was written to include it. I love using a bit of silence to drive home this point (and to allow the other performers some attention). Essentially, without the bass, the performance is generally more intimate; and with the bass (played by a talented bassist) it can be very lively.
I'd put guitar at number 1 because it's such a versatile and badass instrument that is used throughout multiple genres and violin at number 2 because of its sheer difficulty and history. But I voted for bass because it's highly underrated and really does make good tones and spreads good vibes to those who listen to it. You disagree? Listen to soul to squeeze by RHCP and you'll see that the bass can be a melodic and cool instrument. I just love the way a bass feels under my fingers as I'm doing a lick... Even though I'm primarily a piano player. I use finesse when playing the keys, but with that bass you really gotta manhandle it with a big screw you. Bass is awesome lol.
When I first decided that I was going to play the Viola, I was a bit worried that the diversity of the different kinds of music that could be played on this instrument would not compare to the Violin. However, once I learned, I fell in love with the beautiful, rich tone of the Viola, and as I learn even more challenging pieces, I fall deeper in love with the wide range of notes that can be played by this instrument. Another perk the instrument has is that colleges and specialty schools usually have a surplus of Violin and Cello players that apply and audition, but not as many Violas. This means that you have a better chance of making it into a music school.
This instrument is a beauty. It has high and low strings. It even has the same strings as the violin except MORE! To make it EVEN better, its heavier weight than the violin makes it more exercise. Plus, the violas bigger size than the violin makes you stretch your arms. In my opinion, I think the viola is the best instrument in at least strings. It also has a pitch range. I play the viola for two or three months and I'm already LOVING it. Now I'm learning the song Dreidel. Posted 12/18/2018
I own a ukulele and I have become so popular at school. It is so easy to play and I would recommend it to any people looking for a start in string instruments.
I play, and it's so easy to get into and fun and beautiful and soothing. Also I feel like Tyler Joseph.
I have 1 and it is just amazing. Once you can play guitar you can play this.
Very old, but some of the best songs ever played long ago were from people who played the Sitar. Not the best, but it is one of the most legendary.
I play the sitar, and trust me, the only reason it's not number one is because it is a little known instrument.
Classical Indian music is incredible, in the sense of buildup and release, it is very much like metal.
The banjo is my favorite instrument to play!
It has such a nice unique sound and tone to it that makes you want to keep picking it up, and many people of all ages will certainly enjoy hearing you play it!
Some instruments are associated with a certain country (like sitar for India, classical guitar for Spain, and Mandolin for Italy), for the Banjo its sound spells out America!
The Banjo has long been a source of entertainment for many people throughout history. The instrument was based of similar instruments from Africa when black slaves came over, eventually the design was improved with more European instrument traits. That I think shows the melting pot American culture is. It's great to see the banjo nowadays reach far beyond America and have its great sound spreaded across the world.
If you want to play a string instrument, but want to play something unique, the banjo is certainly a instrument to look at!
My favourite instrument in the string family!
A Pipa is a Chinese lute with a strange but great sound. Plan on learning somehow.
The Balalaika has a very distinctive Russian/slavic folk sound, it is by far my favorite instrument but unfortunately many Westerners can't appreciate it. The Balalaika is not easy to learn with the limited resources available compared to similar instruments but that's one of the things that makes it so unique and mystical.
I swear somebody is making these up...
It sound really funny
I play the violin and I love the sound of it. It's so melodious. Love the violin. Violists should really switch to the violin.
This is the same as violin why is this even here?
I like fiddling with my fiddle.
Beautiful instrument, rivals the guitar easily despite it's less conventional shape.
I love the sound of this instrument!
Common people, look it up...
A sound like no other!
My first instrument was the viola, and we already never get any fun parts. But my orchestra class for my grade, didn't have a bass, so I started playing that too. Even though of course it gets the harmony, those parts are fun too. Playing the instrument that no one wanted to is great
The Double Bass is the lowest and Largest sounding member of the string Family.Its strings are plucked while the player is standing because of its Large body.
I think it has the largest range in notes and is overall just better than the violin, cello, and viola
It is awesome
Die wiener philharmoniker have a musician playing the Zither. The zither is played in many traditional places in Austria and the Alpine countries. A sound that pulls on your heart strings, so to say. It is a wonderful accompanying instrument to traditional folk songs.
