    Probably piano because i’ve seen it more common that people can play the piano.

    ive played both. id say piano for the tecniques and drills and everything but guitar is portable and u can do more with it so u get more gratification. therefore, if u want other ppl to be impressed, choose guitar, if not, choose piano

    Easy could mean several things here… As far as actually playing the insturment, either one may come easier to different people.

    But for understanding it– the guitar will seem complicated at first. It is. It will serve you well to learn piano first that way you will understand the notes, how they relate to one another, and how chords are formed. A well – learned piano player can learn any insturment much easier than anyone else.

    It’s easier to learn a song or two, and sound decent on the guitar.
    Learn 3 cords and you can play a number of songs.
    A few weeks on a guitar and you can make play something that sounds like something. A few weeks on the piano and you’ll still be doing good to play chopsticks.

    To be able to read music and play a song should take about the same practice on either,
    And both take years to master.

    I predominantly play the piano but I also play guitar and I found it much easier (at least initially) to play the guitar. Particularly if it is just chords that you can sing along to. If that is what you want, then guitar is quick and fun.

    If you are talking more formal training (exams etc) then they are equally difficult. In this case, go with which instrument you prefer the sound and repertoire of.

    Well, I’ve been taking piano lessons for two and a third years. I just started teaching myself guitar. For one thing, guitar is PAINFULL on the fingers if you are a beginner. The guitar might be harder since you have to memorize all the chords and frets. A piano is only one set of eight keys that repeat themselves. However, on the bad side, a piano involves more techniques and different styles of notes.

    Speaking as one who has played guitar for many years and THEN began playing keyboards (not necessarily “proper” technique style), I’d say guitar.

    With guitar, you’re generally just fingering with one hand and strumming or picking with the other. Now, if we’re talking classical guitar, that’s a different story.

    With piano, I think your brain is working harder, trying to coordinate both hands to perform fingering that is similar, but at different places on the staff.

    For what it’s worth, you have ALL the notes displayed before you on the piano keyboard, but on the guitar fretboard, you cannot necessarily play the same chords as you can on the piano; the inversions will be different.

    But, on the guitar, you can reach a greater range of notes with just one hand.

    You fingertips will be a bit tender for a while when beginning guitar, due to pressing the string down on the neck, as opposed to the piano, where it’s just a flat, smooth key.

    Depends on the student, but piano is a linear instrument where guitar is a mix of linear and non-linear formats. Once you learn musical theory on piano, you can easily adapt it to guitar, or any instrument, but the techniques required to play either are very different and both require years of dedicated practice.
