Default Um... halp?

Yeah. Basically, I need your help. I want to play an instrument. But, I have no idea which one. I have a couple of nominees, though:

-Piano/keyboard
-Violin
-Some kind of flute

So, basically most are a on-the-fly, hey-that'd-be-cool kind of thing, but I'm seriously thinking about the flute and/or piano, mostly because of some songs I heard that sounded really cool. So, you have any ideas? Please, throw me a bone here!

Thanks in advance

Sylvia plays piano. It's a great instrument, and it takes a lot of time and effort, but the payoff is wonderful.
She plays for a few years, and in my opinion, she does it well.

Violins are pretty cool too, though.

Hey, Sylvia's your girlfriend, isn't she? I knew it...

No, but really, I'd start the piano just for being able to play the songs from Kingdom Hearts. Just for that.

Anyway, keep it coming, people!

I'd say piano. It's an instrument that's not easy to learn, compared to many others, but it's also probably the most fundamental instrument there is. If you can master the piano then there's no instrument you can't play, and it'll make playing those others ones that much easier.

i played the piano for 9 years, and then i quit. why? because i was forced into it. if you like the instrument, yes, its great, but dont start playing it thinking that you might practice once a week. where i went they had us practicing 6-7 days. its a time consuming instrument that takes a great deal of skill and patience, but a i said, if you really do like it, go for it. ;D

its more than just "oh isn't that <insert name> kid good at the piano"
it doesnt happen overnight.

Of course, you'd have to practise every day, or at the very least more then four times a week. But it sure is a pity when you're forced to play, you'll naturally want to practise less.

And, oddly enough, it happened overnight with me. I learnt some very small simple things in a day. 'the entertainer' for example. But yeah, that's basic, kiddy stuff, so to speak...
