Want to learn a new instrument?
Always wanted to learn how to play an instrument but thought it would be to hard? It may not be as hard as you have previously anticipated. While learning a new instrument can be quite challenging, there are some instruments that have a lower degree of difficulty and can be learned in a shorter period of time.
“It’s hard to frown when ukulele music is going down”. The UKULELE is known by many to be the easiest instrument to learn. Having only four strings, uke chords are extremely easy to memorize. In addition to its simple string structure the uke is also very small and easy to handle the standard/soprano being only 20 inches or 51 cm in length. Although the ukulele is simple in design and can be easily learned, this is not to say that the music made with this instrument is simplistic; the more advanced you become, the more intricate the sound becomes.
“The harmonica is the most voice-like instrument, you can make it wail, feel happy, or cry. Its like singing the blues without words.”-Charlie Musselwhite. The harmonica also known as the “blues harp” is a great instrument for people with little musical background. Furthermore, you don't need to know a whole lot to be able to play the harmonica, and it's hard to sound bad. In addition, you don't need to slim fast moving fingers, all you need to some strong breath. Yet another great thing about the harmonica is its small size the average being only 6 inches long, you can take your harmonica practically everywhere with you.
“The piano keys are black and white, but they sound like a million colors in your mind.”Maria Cristina Mena. Although the piano may seem complicated, in its purest form it is indeed very simple; you press certain keys in order to produce the desired sound. Unlike most instruments you can’t be out of tune while playing (as long is the piano itself is in tune), while you are able to play the word notes it will never be out of tune. Consider playing the Guitar, if you don't have all your fingers in the right place and are not applying sufficient pressure, the note will be out of tune, this however, is not possible while playing the piano. In conclusion, the piano may take a lot of practice but in the end it creates beautiful music.
