Is it hard to learn to play the accordion?

No, the accordion is not a particularly hard instrument to learn to play. Like most instruments, learning the accordion will take time, focus, practice, and patience to become comfortable mastering it. The best way to improve quickly is to get individual instruction from professional teachers specializing in the accordion.

Is it easier to learn accordion or guitar?

The guitar has a special notation, known as tablature (or tab), to help players learn how to play songs faster. Accordion players must learn to read music (or train the ear) to learn how to play songs effectively. The combination of fingering required for the accordion makes it more complicated to start learning, but much like the piano, the accordion is easier to master quicker than the guitar.
