What is the hardest instrument to play in your opinion?

Some that people say are difficult are the oboe, bassoon, French horn, and harp.

I am a horn player, so I would would have to say horn, and here is why:

The horn is generalized to horn for this reason, there is: hunting horns, natural horns, post horns, omnitonic horns, piston horns, single rotary vavle horns, double horns, triple horns, descant horns, compensating horns, vienna horns, and wagner tubas. All of which can be put into different keys like F, B-flat, A, E-flat, F alto, etc... thus making it a completely different horn.

The horn (as well as all other brass instruments) has the possibility to play overtones (three or four notes at once) and composers have actually written that into pieces.

Depending on the horn player they can play anywhere from 4-6 (sometimes 7) octaves on the horn.

Stopping, you have the option to use your hand, a brass mute, or a non-transposing brass mute. The first two (most commonly used) can be and have to be fingered a half step up, or a half step down (huge debate on which way, they both work, some horn players prefer one over the other.)

Lip trills, many trills but be done with the lips because if you use the keys all it does is change the fingering on the same note.

Depending on the horn you play, there can be anywhere from 2-6 different fingerings for the exact same note (same place on the staff as well) I promise, it is not the easiest thing to memorize.

The gaps between notes are very small, and many notes [going up starting on treble clef third line B-flat) B-flat, C, D, E, F-sharp, G, A, B-flat, B, C, D, and E can all be played open on the F horn. Thus making it, you NEED to know how a note sounds, because you cannot guess.

Horns get the glory of transposing most pieces. There are pieces written in G, A-flat, A, B, B-flat, C, C-sharp, D, E-flat, E, and F-sharp

The most typical horn is a double horn. Tuning a double horn is a bitch, because you have 9 tuning valves, your hand, your lips and alternate fingerings which all contribute to tuning.
