Supposedly the harp is really difficult to play. Not to mention how crazy expensive those things are.

Supposedly it takes something like twenty years to truly master the sitar or so I hear.

It’s very rare for anyone to truly master any instrument. I’m playing semantics a bit but you can be in a bar and some guy who has been playing for decades starts up and it only takes a minute to tell he sucks. If he had a thousand years he’d still suck.

Fakers have more fun.

Personally violin has been the hardest to figure out, mostly because of the hand position. Old school analog synths with the patch cables have a bit of a learning curve to get to the point where you can figure out and tame them but I'd rather learn from an instrument like that than directly command it tbh.

Personally? Brass. Alto Sax. As much as I love it, I tried one out for a friend of mine once. It took me like 10 minutes just to get one note. That reed on the mouthpiece is a mother****er. lol.

Overall? Yeah, I second the sitar. They're extremely delicate. That's part of the factor, the other part of the factor being that there's about as much of note sustain to them as there is with banjos, which is not very much at all. Banjos are another hard one to learn.

The violin is difficult, but not as much so. Mostly that it's a highly compartmentalized space, and it's likely that your neck and hand are really going to cramp up uncomfortably for a while.

In terms of coordination, I'd think that one of the octobass that Wagner used, the really huge ones that required one guy on a ladder and another on the ground to play, would be difficult to learn.

You know that sax is a woodwind right?

Brass is really difficult for me, saxes and clarinets make a lot more sense imo.
