"He had an old, unused guitar set in the basement"

I think you mean unused drum set.

I've been playing guitar for six months, it's my favorite hobby. Drums cost more. You just have to decide which you like best, guitar will take longer to become good at.

I play the drums, started out when I was 16 or so and I took to it quite easily. I've been playing guitar since I was 14 or so, but I was never very serious about it. After I got 20-something, I stepped up a bit on the seriousness and started playing guitar in one of the bands I'm in (before, I only played drums in bands) and now I actually like it more than drums. Now I'll say I'm somewhat competent with both.

It's true, playing guitar is much easier frmo a logistics point of view. I can turn the sound off the TV and play on it during the commercial breaks and it's so much easier to bring over to your friend's house for a little rehearsal and lyrics writing.
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.

Many people, ive noticed, say that the drums are easier to learn than guitar. I'd have to disagree, tho I dont understand the guitar for the life of me. Ill concede that initially its not that hard to play the drums. simple rock beats with a snare on the 2 & 4 and bass on the 1 & 3, they aren't too hard to grasp. but gaining independence between ALL of your limbs is hard, really really hard. Im a pretty decent drummer, but I am NOWHERE close to having all of my limbs completely independent from eachother. I feel as tho getting good at guitar isnt as hard, especially if you dabble with the piano too. Tho I have no experience with the guitar, so i could be wrong.

If your going to play jazz and you want a challenge learn guitar or bass..or drums for that matter.....

as for your question

If your the type of person who is ok with being in the background play drums or bass and vise versa for guitar.....

If you felt a connection with the drums, go for it. You can always go back and learn guitar after you have learned your "soul instrument." But know that no instrument will be EASY to learn. Some may not be as hard as others, but it won't be EASY. I play drums, piano, guitar, french horn, and bass. None of them were easy to learn, but it was well worth it in the long run.

I would like to compare them but I am afraid I will be biased because I am drumming lover. And I think the actual comparison is about your choice; whether you like the guitar better or the drum. For someone who has practice with neither, I suggest they give both of them a go and then decide. As far as being good at either of these is concerned, you need to have patience and keep on practicing.
