Will learning to play another instrument help me to become a better guitarist?
Is there any studies on transfer effect in musical training? Or does someone have any experiences regarding this? First, let me try to make it clear what I mean by transfer effect. Consider this example:
Ex: Person A has studied alot of mathematics, while person B has spent time studying history. Let person A and B be twins so we dont get genetic factors involved. Then both person A and B wants to study physics. Person A will probably get a firm grasp of physics more easy, because of similarties with math. (it uses alot of math)
Is there such things in music too? I play drums (not played that long, but I am making progress), but I also like melodic instruments like piano, guitar etc ... So after some time, maybe years, will it be more easy for me to learn a second instrument if I want?
