Default Piano or Guitar?

Between the two, which would you prefer to learn? If you can already play either or both, which do you like better?

Some day I'd like to be able to play both instruments but I realize it's probably better to just focus on one for now.

I play the piano and think it's cool. The problem is that it takes years and years to become a competent player with proper technique.

From what I've seen from friends and family it is much easier to learn to play "nice sounding" songs on the guitar then it is on the piano.

ill respectfully disagree with this statement. Its pretty easy to play "nice sounding" songs on both instruments.

I play both and have for many years; For my major in college they made me, take classes on/perform at recitals, on piano and classical guitar. I would suggest for people to learn the piano first if you have the chance. Its easier to pick up the guitar at a later age; you can practice your guitar stuff while watching a basketball game etc..

Everybody plays the piano too. Why do you think they are set up in almost every hotel and common rooms at universities?

Play guitar. You can take your acoustic with you anywhere. You cant take a piano with you.

Guitar would seem like it would be harder just b/c of the way it's set up compared to the piano.

i'm learning guitar and teaching myself piano. piano is a lot easier to learn imo but they both take a ton of practice.

Women respect a man who can play the piano. They take their clothes off for a man who plays guitar.

Piano helps you understand music theory easier, in my opinion.

But then you look like a gay. Or a pseudo-hippie wearing moccasins and yelling "Look at me" while you attempt to play some Bob Dylan acoustically or some ****.

Or, you could be a badass, and take your real guitar with you, and play Amon Amarth at parties. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UR4d1cKqsbE
