I personally think the harp has the best sound. Although it's not a very popular musical instrument. It also reminds me of the beautiful Greek legends.

Oh it was nice of you to look for it yourself..........You have to sit cross legged on the floor and place it across your lap to play it.........Its a stringed instrument and needs lots of practice,but its worth all the effort.........

I am with you on the harp - going to the symphony, hearing the harpest is always the highlight for me. I also enjoy watching her play it is so poetic. I am also quite fond of the Cello - with its deep and mellow tones....mmmm.

Cello is a very special musical instrument because I think it's easier for others to ignore it

hi there youless, For me, the piano and violin is the most soothing musical instrument. Whenever I hear a piano or a violin played it really relaxes me and I guess it really is good to hear these instruments in classical musics.

If someone who is good at playing the violin, it's better for him/her not to play it as the sound will be terrible. On the contrary, a person who doesn't know how to play the piano won't create such a horrible music sound

I always love piano, and I really enjoy the piano music. Whenever I see someone playing piano, or listen to any piano music, I feel really touched. I do listen to some other musical instruments, they are nice too, but they don't give me the feeling as piano music does.

A Night At The Opera - The poster of the movie A Night At The Opera
I love all musical instruments. Do you like funny movies? Do you like Opera? If so, rent A Night at the Opera. It stars The Marx Brothers. They were three crazy comedians. In the middle of this funny movie, Harpo Marx has a wonderful harp solo.It is my favorite part of the film.In the attached poster,Harpo is the one in the hat.

I seldom watch opera. But I would like to watch Cats one day. It's a classical opera and some songs are nice there. Besides, I like cats

I am not very interested in Chinese opera. Because everything seems to be quite slow, including the singing.

I personally prefer the saxophone. Love the low, melodic sounds it makes. And if you can get a good CD full of nice saxophone tunes, all you need is a nice air-conditioned room and a good cuppa. Relax by lying down on your favorite couch, flip the CD into the player and let the music drain away all those horrible day stress you have as the music fills the room. Very very good for relaxing after a long day at the office.

Saxophone was popular when Kenny G's albums released here.

Oh, my love for Saxophone goes way before Kenny G was popular. And most of Kenny G's tunes are played on the clarinet. Very few are by Saxophone. But the tunes are all good. I love them and have quite a few of them in my collection as well. Which one is your favorite among his collection of tunes? He hasn't release any new albums for a long time. Is Kenny G retired?

Not many people play the harp nowadays do they my friend? Well apart from angels of course! It has a lovely melodic tune to it I agree, but for me my favourite musical instrument is the flute! I love the enchanting music that a flute plays, I think James Galway was a famous flute player, but I can't think of any others, I am not musically gifted but if I could play an instrument professionally I would choose a flute and besides a flute isn't heavy to carry around LOL!

Here the harps are not popular yet. People tend to play the violin and piano and some traditional Chinese musical instruments. We have some flutes lessons as this kind of musical instrument isn't expensive and many people can afford it.

I love the sound of the violin... and i think it has the most haunting and soothing sound... i had Korean students in the past who played the violin really well... and i hope they become famous someday... I also want my daughter to learn how to play this instrument... but they said it can be very gruelling at times... and one needs to learn at a very early age to be very good at it... i just hope my daughter is interested in learning how to play the violin...

When I was little, I played the violin for fun and the sound was terrible. So it's not easy to learn to play it well.

I think the harp has a wonderful sound and it's really magical. Too bad that it's not something easy to be learnt, otherwise I would consider learning it *laughs*.

I've always loved piano music, classical or modern! I also like the harp, too bad it doesn't seem to be commonly heard. There was a Japanese harp player who settled here in my country, Tadao Hayashi, and he played heavenly music with the harp. I have a CD collection of the pieces that he played. I love it.

Yeah, it seems that the harp is not very popular.
