    I prefer guitar because I cant play piano LOL, seriously but, I know 3 or 4 chords on the keyboard and transpose them. I don't like the bass or drums on a keyboard, they're too mechanical or something, (I'll contradict myself by saying that I use an sr 16 for studio work)

    I started to learn the piano when I was 14 and my brother learned the gitaur. It has taken me several years to be able to play music properly but my brother took off straight away. He has explained how to play the instrument and I can work out the chords on it but can only play 3 - what he taught me. I think the piano is harder to pick up but you can go further, plus it is a great solo and accompaniment. The gituar is great for accompaning songs but takes great skill to play actual music (eg classical music) or lead gitaur. I think if you want to learn an instrument but don't have much patience you should start with the gitaur. But I personally love the piano. You can play nearly anything from classical music, jazz, to modern pop songs.

    I enjoy the different ways the guitar can be played,leading to an incredibly diverse range of styles,but i think you get a much better grasp of harmony by studying piano/players

    ive played piano for 5 years and guitar for 3, i like guitar better, because i can actually play songs i hear on the radio and songs that i listen to in spare time. and you can play so many styles with so many songs, with piano youre a bit more limited.

    i like both. I think Piano is easier to play , it doesnt hurt your fingers.
    But what i like about the guitar is that i can bring my guitar on the beach with me.

    I play the Guitar and it's really fun but I'd like to learn how to play the Piano. The piano looks like it would be fun to learn how to play.

    i've played piano for about 5 years... picked up a piano about 4 months ago. guitar is a lot more fun to play. if you already know how to play piano, picking up guitar should be easier.
