the obvious easiest instrument ot learn next would be bass.

Personally...I'd like to get a viola or a violin this summer.

It depends on what you want spend to get into it. Drums are always great to know how to play, but they can take quite an investment to get started. Bass would be easy. Maybe you could look into a mandolin. Im not sure what kind of stuff you play so that may not be good.

Piano is the best instrument to learn for both theory and composition. If you don't play it already I strongly recommend you learn it next. Otherwise I'd go to another stringed instrument.

bass, percussion, drums..

good for you wanting to learn another instrument...the more you learn the better you understand how they work together, which can make you a better musician..

other than guitar i play some: electric 4 string bass, percussion, ukulele (tuned gbae...been a while though, heh), and i can do a few chords on the piano...

If it were ME, I'd learn the piano (but I'd play a hammond organ. Those are so cool!)

However, I'd like to just stick with guitar mainly. That's going to be my main focus. I do like fiddling around on the piano and bass, though.

You should look at a mandolin. They are lots of fun, and pretty easy if you know guitar.

Yeah... that's my recommendation. Get yourself a couple thousand (probably about 6-7K) and buy yourself a Hammond B-3 with a Leslie 122.

No seriously... I recommend learning the piano. It's usually not too hard to get access to one, and it's by far the most useful instrument to learn.

for me i learned bass after guitar. that wasn't too hard but some of my guitar technique has definitely spilled over into my bass playing. including riffs i'd do on my guitar. i've done a few runs on the bass that typically i'd play on the guitar. fun stuff. drums were the next thigs i've really gotten partially good at. though i can only keep certain beats well. i'm working on that one... slowly but i'm getting there.

I would suggest piano. Somebody once told me that the two best instrument to know how to play are piano and guitar, because there are pianos everywhere and you can take a guitar anywhere... so since you know guitar learn piano, plus it helps with theory and general knowledge.

I'm Chiming in for the Madolin also. I have just started playin one after , in order, clarinet, trumpet, baritone, trumbone, tuba, keys, drums, bass, guitar, bass again, and guitar. After all of these I think that I like the mando the best. It can play classical, rock, pop, country, bluegrass, jazz, etc... I love to portability of it, with myself being a US Sailor, storage space is at premium, and with the exection of the clarinet it takes up the least amount of space.

I went with harmonica cause it's a cheap and fairly easy to play. I get a little winded at times hitting high notes and it forces me to learn to read music are some of the drawbacks. But I went out and got a harmonica holder so now I play guitar and harmonica at the same time.Its a little tricky too if your looking for a challenge. Ive learned some Neil Young on it but my most recent is The River by Bruce Springsteen.
