Harmonica.

Or if you're up to it, the mandolin. This kid in my cabin at camp had been playing mandolin for ~7 years, and he could seriously shred on it. It was awesome.

Harmonica and mandilon are great. Piano too. I've been taking up the Hurdy Gurdy lately :P maybe a Dulcimer down the road

keyboards are pretty cheap and simple to get the basics down with already knowing some musical theory...they also come in amazingly handy for composing...

what kind of intruments were used by ancient egyptians?


Pretty sure they had some forms of harps and xylophones.

I wanted something wicked so I took up cello. Cello > your soul. Although viola, double bass, and harpsichord are amazing too. I wish I had the money for all that.

I believe it was the lute.

Harmonica is defenitely up there. Saxophone is cool too but those things are expensive...

It's pretty hard to find someone as hardcore as Tom. The race for hardcore supremacy would be pretty close but i think Tom's got his nose just in front for now...
