Can't never did anything I've played at many instruments, but this one stuck. I've probably enjoyed playing this more than any other. Guitar was probably the most difficult to attempt to learn.
Here's what I did, I pickup a couple books, a DVD or 2 and utilized YouTube extensively, and still do use YouTube. Two instruments come to mind as fairly easy to learn. The Mountain Dulcimer, which I'm partial too, and Ukelele. I know one guy that started playing the Uke about 2 months ago and is doing quite well at this time. Neither instrument is very expensive, my first Mountain Dulcimer was about $200, the one in the video I've got close to $200 into it and several hours of labor. I built it from a kit. Ukes start about $60 and go up.
I play close to 1.5 hours a day, attempting to get 2 hours of playing in. I can't play 2 hours straight, about 45 minutes to an 1 hour and I'm through for a few hours.
I think you'd enjoy either one. Give it a try.
