I'd have to say violin. Everyone says violin isn't something you pick up and learn. Everyone plays guitar, but violin is something different you really have to be in tune with. Ehh, personally I think that's a load of crap, but I do agree that violin is something special. And I wish I could eff that shit up.

Or maybe cello. Or a harp.

But yeah.

Wish I could play the Cello. Would it be possible to teach yourself? (question for people that play stringed instruments)

Violin.

I think every girl should learn how to play the harp, it's such a sexual instrument. When I write my first symphony I'm going to put a bunch of harps in and then hit on all the harpists.

I didn't realize a Harpsichord was in most orchestras. Besides the fact, if you can play piano, you've got the general idea.

I would definitely say Harp. And I agree with what Kensai said.

Jesus was all like "To those about to rock, I salute you." then he grabbed his mighty axe and rocked the Romans out really hard. Of course they were strict classical music so....

A **** off massive tuba or double bass or something like that.
I like the bassiness.
UG and Sporcle are both fantastic time wasting devices.

Harpsichord.

The 1600's called, they want their instrument back.

I play trumpet. I'm auditioning (hopefully) for the Hallé Harmony in the summer I play piano as well.

Viola is the way to go (Y)

Sounds way better and is more of a challenge but way more worth it compared to violin.

You need pretty much perfect intonation to make a violin sound nice, its like trying to play a fretless bass but harder.

I would like to play harp or piano really well, i am trying to learn piano now and i can play melodies and such quite well by ear, but putting it all together (left hand and right hand, sustain pedal, etc) is quite difficult.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

no, definately not you really will need lessons. I've been playing for almost 10 years now so you can trust me

I used to play the violin, found it abit hard because the teacher at the time just said "Play this"


I enjoyed it though, wish I could carry on playing it

Because to be honest, I don't have the money for lessons. Maybe when I have funds. Thanks for replying though.

I play the violin and would say that I found it easier to learn than the guitar, which is probably due to me already having 3 years of experience of guitar playing.

No harder to learn than any other instruent, it's just about how much effort you are willing to put in.

Use Youtube, if anything that will be better than having lessons as you will be able to learn at your own pace, and you will have so many lessons to choose from.

Timpani.

Bar that, trumpet or saxophone. I love the idea of breathing life into music, but I have no use for most woodwinds.

I play the viola and violin (occasionally). There are many challenges for both instruments, but I find that the viola is more difficult due to the size of the instrument. You can learn to play decently without toooo much difficulty, but once you start trying to do harder stuff, the little things start to matter more. Things like posture, bow grip, etc.
EDIT:

Double bass, I can mess around on it but I'd love to play it in an orchestra. Or cello, they're badass.

I taught myself double bass (because it's pretty similar to bass guitar), so cello couldn't be too hard to learn by yourself. Obviously you won't have all the classical discipline of a taught player, but you could still probably figure out how to make music to some extent on a cello by yourself.

On topic, I play flute and sax, and also used to play baritone. I want to learn oboe and violin too.

Cello lessons are starting in my school soon, so I'm going for them

Upright bass would be cool too
