"It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself."

Johann Sebastian Bach

Obviously never having touched his lips to the mouthpiece of a trumpet. Plays itself. Right. Just have to 'touch the right key'! Same goes for the Didgeridoo and a myriad of other 'any musical instruments'.

I do like the simplicity in his sentiment, though. The music is within any instrument, one merely has to interact with it to gain anything meaningful.

>>>Like lots of things in life, these concepts are both simple and complex, easy and hard. We all know that playing an instrument well is a huge challenge but on some level it is the easiest thing in the world. I have this crazy idea that if one approached a new instrument with the proper frame of mind and attitude one could play it just as well as someone who has studied for years.

If I'm not mistaken, JS Bach's was meant to be ironic...in other words "It ain't as easy as it looks."
