I would choose to play the piano! I've always enjoyed to listen to classical piano music, but I haven't learned to play piano. :bye:
Do it! ;) Honestly, I think if you can play guitar, you can play the piano. You *usually* don't have to form your fingers into pretzels for one thing. :D I guess the biggest challenge would be getting used to reading the grand staff.

Cello. Love the sound, and I always thought it was way cooler to carry a cello on your back than lugging around a guitar case.

Yes, when I bought a hard guitar case, I was a bit horrified at how heavy it was with the guitar in it. You'd think they'd design all guitar cases to be wearable on your back.

I said piano earlier but I realize I might be tempted by the harp.

I would not say no to the trumpet if I could be another Miles Davis.

another instrument?
how about electric guitar?
fretless guitar?
microtonal guitar?
10 string guitar?
slide guitar?
I'd better speak by music...Please listen Andrei Krylov at Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon Prime etc. Thanks!

There is a vast range of more exotic instruments in use in other countries. China, for example, has instruments such as the guzheng (a sort of zither/harp), the erhu (a two-stringed violin), wind instruments like the bamboo flute, various plucked string instruments like the ruan and pipa, and a whole host of others. You can see a number of them being played in this video:

My choice would be the guzheng... Like the CG, it is great for solos.

Piano, since I already play it. However, if I had to choose an instrument that I do not have experience with, I probably would choose mandolin.
Whenever I am not ready for my music lesson, I call it 'facing the music'.

I guess either piano or mandolin. Well, I actually think I will try mandolin some day.
