  • Hello, guys.

  • Welcome to another episode of TwoSet Violin.

  • Where's the triangle?

  • Yeah, I was like, where is it?

  • - We are both like... - Where's the "ding, ding"?

  • Hello, guys.

  • Welcome to another episode of TwoSet Violin.

  • Today we will be reviewing

  • a sacrilegious video that we found.

  • This video claims to rank

  • the top ten most difficult instruments to learn...

  • - And as... - Oh man...

  • The Youtube violin detectives...

  • We thought we watch it together today and...

  • Share our...

  • Humble opinion.

  • Yeah, accent the like button,

  • so more people can see this video.

  • All right.

  • First of all, six million views...

  • And look at that dislike bar.

  • 25,000 dislike bar.

  • But let's review it, cause you never know.

  • - Because there's still 60,000 likes. - You never know. Yeah.

  • Let's come into this with a neutral unbiased perspective.

  • Learning to play an instrument is challenging.

  • But these instruments take it to a whole new level.

  • When I jam with my bass.

  • That was not an instrument.

  • Number ten, drums.

  • Banging on something in time

  • with the beat sounds easy enough, right?

  • Wrong.

  • Especially considering that in a band

  • or orchestral setting,

  • drums in any fashion are held responsible for

  • making sure everyone else is on beat.

  • No wonder I can't play in time...

  • Because the percussion section who are responsible

  • for my rhythm are messing up.

  • Mozart, why did you write the symphony

  • without a drum kit?

  • Now, I can't play in time.

  • That's such a...

  • Big assumption, it's like drums just keep people in time.

  • It degrades the percussion instrument as well.

  • I know, it's like, percussion has a lot more to offer

  • than just going "doom".

  • - Yeah. - "Doom, doom."

  • Stay on time, guys.

  • Every musician needs to have an innate sense of pulse,

  • when they're playing music, like...

  • It's not like, music without drums,

  • suddenly loses a sense of beat.

  • Number ten already discredited the other ones.

  • - I don't trust the other nine ratings. - Exactly.

  • Whatever it is.

  • Learning the basics is easy enough,

  • but once you get into the real meat of it,

  • drumming is a test of coordination and endurance.

  • Um, so is like every other instrument.

  • What about my oxygen capacity as a woodwind player?

  • Yeah, that doesn't need endurance.

  • Yeah, opera singer...

  • Uhhh, their throat.

  • Don't need coordination for anything.

  • At its core, playing drums is actually

  • playing multiple instruments at once.

  • Even a basic beat will involve all four limbs.

  • - Those two things didn't match up. - It didn't make sense.

  • It's like...

  • Using four limbs...

  • Doesn't mean you're playing multiple instruments.

  • Yeah.

  • The organ uses all four limbs.

  • But it's playing one instrument.

  • Number nine, pipe organ.

  • Okay, I do think the organ is very hard.

  • - Yeah, but... - But, they put it at number nine, which is interesting.

  • What are the other eight, I don't know anymore.

  • This is another instrument that requires

  • a mastery of hand-eye coordination.

  • Like every other instrument.

  • Yeah, but actually, also it's not hand-eye coordination.

  • They can play without looking.

  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah. - Yeah.

  • In addition to a pedal board controlled by the feet.

  • Yeah, that does look messed up.

  • And of course, they're playing flight of the bumblebee...

  • Because this video is sacrilegious.

  • Oh my god.

  • Sacrilegious video.

  • Each keyboard has its own set of voices

  • and knowing which to employ at what time

  • is as much of a learning curve as melody,

  • chord theory or the actual playing.

  • That sentence just...

  • It was so like...

  • What was your point?

  • Being able to cook fried rice...

  • Is as difficult as chopping wombok...

  • Doing squats and breathing.

  • - It's just so unrelated, like... - Yeah.

  • That was such a weird comparison.

  • It's probably fitting that

  • this instrument is normally used in churches

  • because if you plan on learning the organ

  • you are going to need some divine intervention.

  • Dude, that did not make sense at all.

  • Dude, what the f—

  • And divine intervention is like...

  • - Sounds horrible. Yeah. - Intervening. Like stop.

  • It's like getting in the way or something.

  • Number eight, accordion.

  • The accordion is an odd instrument.

  • So it's only fitting that it is forever linked with

  • the oddball Weird Al Yankovic.

  • But given Al's level of proficiency on the instrument,

  • maybe he's due even more respect

  • than the internet pays him.

  • Playing the accordion is essentially like

  • playing two instruments at once.

  • One end of the accordion is a small keyboard and

  • on the other, a set of buttons that controls bass notes.

  • - That doesn't mean you're playing... - Bass notes and keyboard doesn't mean two instruments.

  • You...

  • You...

  • You...

  • Watch dumb -

  • Number seven.

  • Oboe.

  • The first of a few instruments on this list that

  • requires lungs of steel,

  • the oboe is an instrument whose sound is solely

  • dependent on how you use your mouth.

  • Do you hear that, oboists?

  • The sound you make is solely dependent

  • on how you use your mouth.

  • Yeah, nothing else.

  • At the top of the oboe is a reed that you use to control

  • the sounds coming out.

  • You must constantly open or close the reed

  • to allow or restrict sound and you have to make sure

  • the reed itself is moist enough that

  • sound wants to come out.

  • They picked like...

  • Such a trivial part of oboe playing...

  • - There's so much more— - And made such a big deal.

  • Yeah, there's a lot of different things about

  • oboe that makes it difficult.

  • Yeah, it's like, "oh, but the hardest part is making sure

  • it's the right amount of moistness in the reed."

  • Dude...

  • Number six, guitar.

  • The guitar is the classic go-to instrument for the

  • fast track to rock and roll super stardom.

  • So they all think.

  • Yeah...

  • Whether electric or acoustic,

  • guitars all get played pretty much the same way.

  • Did they...

  • What the

  • What the f—

  • Dude, every guitarist is so triggered right now.

  • Urgh...

  • Wae...

  • I can't watch this. It's so painful.

  • Simply pressing down on the fretboard to create a note

  • can be difficult and downright painful.

  • Campfire level guitar playing can be easy enough to learn,

  • but guitar is hard to master given

  • how many styles it can be played in.

  • And the given techniques used in each style.

  • Even on the basic level,

  • coordinating both halves of you to work in sync

  • and play something musical can be a challenge.

  • Coordinating both halves of you to be

  • in sync can be a challenge.

  • That...

  • That just... That's every instrument.

  • DumbMojo.

  • DumbMojo.

  • - DumbMojo - DumbMojo, that's it.

  • Number five.

  • Piano.

  • Piano.

  • And then...

  • The first representative music of piano is pop.

  • Dude...

  • - What? This is like... - Woah!

  • Woah!

  • DumbMojo's going for the roast.

  • Ohohoho!

  • They going for the

  • Piano gang's just like...

  • "Um..."

  • Like, there's nothing wrong with pop piano, don't get us wrong.

  • But the topic is...

  • - Hardest instrument. - Instrument.

  • - It's like... - If you put hard and piano together...

  • You need...

  • Liszt.

  • Here's another instrument that

  • requires a fair bit of multitasking.

  • While playing a piano, you must use both hands while

  • simultaneously sightreading lines of music.

  • Ah!!!

  • Yeah, cause if you play piano you just have to sightread.

  • There's no such thing as practicing the music, guys.

  • You're just sightreading it.

  • Number four.

  • Harp.

  • The harp is known for its beautiful and majestic tone.

  • And to the untrained eye, it looks simple enough to play.

  • Not only do you get to sit down,

  • you just have to run your fingers across the strings

  • and wonderful music is heard.

  • Except, not so much.

  • While the actual plucking of strings

  • is simple enough mechanically,

  • the musical theory behind it is demanding.

  • What's more, many forms of harp also incorporate

  • foot pedals used to sharpen or flatten a note,

  • further increasing this instrument's difficulty.

  • All this explanation can just be

  • slapped on any instrument, you know?

  • Like...

  • Not only does it look easy in the beginning...

  • But actually the music theory involved in learning it,

  • makes it very difficult.

  • Yeah. So hard.

  • Number three.

  • Bagpipes.

  • They show bagpipe and they play like...

  • - Some pop music. - I know...

  • Never to be moved or easily carried,

  • but the bagpipes blur the line

  • by being both cumbersome and bulky,

  • while being portable by design.

  • That was so like contradictory statement.

  • He couldn't make up his mind as to whether it was

  • hard to carry or easy to carry.

  • - Yeah. - Bro, it's like...

  • Cumbersome and bulky while being portable by design.

  • It's like, dude, what are you talking about, man?

  • Similar to the accordion,

  • bagpipes require constant stimulation

  • in order to continue producing sound.

  • Name me an instrument that doesn't require

  • constant stimulation in order to produce sound.

  • And the sound it makes is enough to make anyone

  • want to wear a kilt and strap on a sporran.

  • But it's not for the faint of heart.

  • Bruh, you're writing

  • Are you trying to write a novel now or something?

  • Like, what?

  • All right, okay, there's two more, right?

  • What do you think the top two are?

  • I reckon violin and...

  • They wouldn't put a wind instrument,

  • got enough wind instruments.

  • They have, yeah.

  • They haven't done a brass yet.

  • Could be a trumpet.
