There are a lot of different instruments. I prefer for example the piano in front of the guitar. Think it is much easier and it is more logical and more gentle on the fingers. It makes very painful to play guitar, trying to hold down the right strings and keep on. And if one has a chord and then to raise it so it becomes a completely different chords. Piano, does not hurt at all, all the keys are very soft. And you have a chord and want to raise it, move all the fingers of one up. Piece of cake. And if you want to lower the chord, move your fingers one step. Want to play a major chord, move the middle finger and if you want a minor chord, move the same finger in the other direction.
