Do you think that learning to play an instrument requires natural talent, or do you think that anybody can learn to play any instrument with the right amount of practice and/or training? I think that some people may not have the physical skill to play particular instruments well, but I think that everyone could probably find an instrument that is suitable for him or her.

I'm not sure if a thing such as talent exists. I mean, have people put in the time (for practice)?

Did you find it easier to learn any of the instruments that you play? Did you find any to be particularly tricky? That might be an example of "natural talent" potentially being a factor.

Breathing problems stopped me on trumpet and sax. Anyway, that has nothing to do with "the idea of talent", though.
