Guitar may not be the hardest instrument to play. Actually, that type of difficulty is relative. The learning curve for guitar is very very very high, especially in the beginning. Toward the end it tapers off, and that's when the piano picks up in difficulty.<P>I wouldn't say guitar is not hard to play, that's a gross misstatement. Most of the classical songs I play require me to play in both the treble, and bass ranges, effectively causing me to, basically, play two guitar parts at once. Especially things by Bach. His songs, Jesu, Joy of Mans Desiring, and Bouree, are really tough. Also, for some of the chords I have to play in some songs, I have a six fret spread. You try holding you're fingers apart a good five inches or so, without touching any string you're not supposed to. It's hard and it hurts
Especially on a classical.<P>That doesn't get into the intracacies of picking, palm muting, harmonics.... Blah, I could go on, but I doubt anyone's interested
Sorry if I sound defensive, but all those garage band guitarists give the ones who do the difficult stuff a bad name.<P>------------------
