Max... That depends on what you are gifted with. Both can be learned, of course, but sometimes, one comes easier than the other if you are naturally good at something... For instance, if you can move several parts of your body, namely your arms and legs, independantly of each other, you'd probably do better on the drums. If you are a more intricate operator, or typer perhaps, you'd probably do better on guitar. I play the guitar very well, and never had good rythm with the rest of my body, but I'm still learning....getting better, but both take a lot of work to be decent at them. Good luck... Dive Deep!

Guitar is definitly harder, drums you just need to work on your dexterity and beat, there's no real strategy to hitting things. Guitar requires memorizing tons of notes and chords as well as actually holding down the strings correctly and learning various methods of strumming.

As what most people might have said, the guitar is quite difficult to play (with all those techniques and shredding and combining it all together). But I have been playing guitar nearly all my life, now Drums is difficult for me to learn, I can't syncopate my right arm from my left arm.. The beat I've mastered is the common one, doog-doog-pak!

I think the drums is harder to play. I play electro-acoustic guitar, and I am learning it quite quickly. I have tried to play the drums but I cannot keep up with it. Maybe I need more training from experienced people playing drums.
