If all music is basically the same what's the point of asking which genre is hardest to play?

I reckon jazz is the hardest too, we gotta know our scales, have good technics, have a good ear, a good sense of harmony, be able to improvise on the spot, improvise alongside other musicians, ... and still manage to stay cool on stage

I'd say classical. From what I've learnt, it's much more technical than any other contemporary music I've ever attempted to play. I play piano though, so I suppose the answer could vary between instruments and people...

my guess would be someone who understands the difference between playing the notes and playing the music.

I'd have to say jazz, with blues and classical in second place.

I think this is a completely subjective question but in my opinion I think classical is by far the hardest to play. Playing classical music requires so much more than just having the notes and technique and such.

Classical is a style, not a genre.(so are many of the genres listed for that matter) It encompasses a range of music that range from excruciatingly difficult to mind-numbingly easy.

Jazz has to be the hardest to play. It is extremely easy to make jazz sound terrible. Good jazz is an extremely intricate ordeal.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by classical. If you are talking Beethoven and Bach and all them, then that would probably be a close second.
