Ever? No idea. I imagine that guitars (acoustic and electric alike) are likely the most coveted across all age groups. They are also easily accessible and not difficult to pick up. Among musicians, I wouldn’t know how to answer. I have friends who are die-hard violinists, flutists, pianists, more than one experimental percussionist, and the sort who dabbles in a little bit of everything from woodwinds, brass, and strings (oh my.)

There’s a guy at my university who sits outside playing the sitar now and then. He’s amazing.

I have an acoustic guitar, but I’m not comfortable playing it. I’ve been meaning to pick up my harmonica again, but haven’t felt motivated enough. Lately, I have been daydreaming about investing in a tenor ukulele.

I would guess either the guitar or the piano.

“I want to learn how to play ______”.

If I imagine someone saying this, guitar sounds the most natural.

This last century? Guitar, due to the rise of rock and roll. Previously? The piano. Drums are also very popular, but you can have a song that’s just guitar and no drums – but there are almost no songs with just drums.

@muppetish And then there’s Sting, who learned the play the electric lute. My mind is still reeling that there’s such a thing as an electric lute.

I’m with @downtide It’s probably either the guitar or the piano, or maybe a tie between the two.

Get a guitar and a harmonica. Both are very portable and very fun to play!

You’d be amazed by the number of adults I come across who have “always wanted to learn the harp”... but that contrasts greatly with the number that actually ever do.

downtide's avatar

@harple I’ve tried my hand at many different instruments including the harp – that was actually the one I liked the best, and found the easiest to pick up. But I have neither the space nor the money to own one myself.
