 Piano. Learn the basics and you can easily play actual music compared to just playing melodies.

No no no no no no no no no.

Every chode and his grandma plays guitar.  Badly.  Noone listens to guitar music anyway, especially not girls.
Drums are for weirdos.

Go with Piano.  It's the ultimate instrument. Plus you can move easily onto keyboards for sequencing & producing if that's your bag.

Try out all three then choose whichever you feel is invesment-worthy time and energy-wise. Lead guitarists are usally expected to be the flashiest players in a band, so they tend to come off as more "alpha" and are usually the center of attention. So I suggest picking up guitar as your main instrument if the "getting laid" factor is your top most priority. If you have time, learn all three and that'll be even better. Lastly, learn an instrument for YOURSELF and for the girls. They are just a byproduct of your future success as a musician.

Guitar and piano

You can learn both.

I play a bit of piano but I recently really laid off it to focus on guitar because thats my role in my potential upcomming band so I had to really smash at it alot of hours per day. But  6 months ago I was doing both ok without problems, in fact I also considered learning drums.

Depends how much free time you have.

As far as getting you laid - drums are the most attractive ones, since it's the most physical activity.
However, any instrument, when viewed as an amplification to your value, will actually do the opposite. When you're on stage, you have value, when you get off and go speak to some chicks, and being a chode who thinks music will get him laid - you lose.
Yeah, there are the occasional girls that will sleep with you JUST because you play in a band, but in that case - an instrument rarely matters.
Most chicks that go to gigs have already slept with at least 1 or 2 musicians, so it's no big deal.
So I'm sorry if that's not your actual intent, but since you posted this in the main pickup forum, I assumed the question is tied to "which instrument will get me more girls"

Now as far as musicianship goes - I'd say pick 2. 1 main and piano on the side. It is incredibly easy to "get" it when you have a piano infront of you. Also makes for easier songwriting, especially if you combine 2 instruments.

Drums are hard to move around and REALLY HARD to isolate in a spot where you can practice without bothering anyone. If you choose to go that way - consider electronic drums, on the side of a main kit. They are not the real thing, but you can still keep them in your bedroom and practice w/ headphones or w/e.

youre retarded, obviously not a musician, completely ignorant of the entire instrumental guitar market. gtfo. everything cool is a chode magnet. 


music is an artform. if you just want to make music, try a few free music creation tools (synthesia is an easy, quick one to start). newer musicians often just want to play with music and make something that sounds good, and learning an instrument doesn't reach that point for a few years. you need to be willing to invest 5 years before you start to come into your own, and the last 5 years is typically where your style will come out. 

i'll give you a basic why of the big 4:

guitar: EXTREMELY expressive. every note on a guitar can be articulated (and modified in the case of electric guitars). vibrato, slides, bends, pull offs, and string gauge differences give the guitar an insanely complex range of phrasing and articulation. it's also got lots of big chords (3 & 4 finger, barre chords). tuning possibilites along with capos basically = infinite possibilities. you need to be an extremely dynamic person to fully explore the instrument, or you will die before you scratch the surface. 

piano: an excellent instrument - very simple layout, very fast familiarization. lots of amazing musicians got their start on the instrument because it provides an amazing foundation for understanding what music is on a fundamental level (dissecting relationships between intervals over time). the instrument doesn't have the expressive range that a guitar does because of the physics behind a piano, but you can still get a ton of different sounds out just by changing the force that you come down on a key with. 

drums: drums are the rhythmic staple of western music (and eastern to an extent, but they usually use hand drums). they're a shitload of fun to play once you've developed a good sense of rhythm. it's also an awesome workout. 

electronic: electronic music is a shitty word, but is pretty commonly used to describe music that's primarily created and/or sequenced with software. i love the shit out of electronic music - it's easy to spend an hour or 2 straight just adjusting knobs to get a new sound that has it's own voice to it. it's very free and unlimited, and there's lots of potential in the market right now. you'll need business savvy if you ever want to go past the labor of love and make money from music, but damn if it doesn't feel good to accidently make $100 from dicking around because people love a song you've made. 


good luck man. you can PM me if you want to know anything about the guitar, it's my biggest passion and i can type for fucking days on the subject so i should prolly just stop now
