Ocarina Vs Harp by Lethalityrush Ocarina Vs Harp by Lethalityrush
In Ocarina of Time and Majora's mask, you had to remember (or look up) songs to play on the ocarina. In Skyward Sword, Link's instrument was the Goddess's harp. How do you play it? Oh you just swing your arm back and forth with the wiimote... Zelda would be so proud! Happycry revamp  

P.S. The harp is actually a lyre, and the tones produced by it will follow the harmonics of the background music in the location it's played (according to zeldawiki). 

Which instrument did you like better?

Same here. I'm a fan of both. Although, one could probably argue the Goddess's Harp is the more powerful instrument as all the songs could be played on either one, in a realistic setting of course, and the Harp has the advantage of letting Link multitask and play one song on the Harp and sing or, more likely, hum another at the same time.

The ocarina was a tool critical to completing the game in multiple main quest and side quest objectives and required some form of memorization to play the songs.

The Goddess Harp seemed gimmicky and hardly worth carrying around for the 4 context-sensitive songs you needed to play with an overly-simplistic control scheme. All but one of the songs played on the harp were forgettable.

Harp was more fun and easier since I don't have to memorize patterns. Plus it sounded beautiful. I'd rather go for both but the easiest is the Harp, plus my favorite Zelda theme is done by harp, Great Fairy's Fountain.

Ocarina definitely :happybounce:
Much more of a challenge and it felt more like really playing. I liked the harp, it sounded great and having to make the movement was a fun thing to do, but I like the ocarina better :)

Never played a lyre in my entire life but I'm fairly certain there's more to it than just moving your arm back and forth. It's a pity that Nintendo didn't take advantage of that.

I've always wanted a real ocarina so I could play more than just Zelda songs, like "When the Cold of Winter Comes" from The Lord of the Rings, or maybe try the Yoshi's Island theme with an ocarina, which I'm sure would be quite impossible.

Ocarina all the way I've played both games and I found it better using the ocarina then the lyre the ocarina you could make all kinds of music even songs that weren't in the game plus the ocarina you could play out the whole songs before you learned them just for fun

Ocarina, without a doubt.
When I heard we would get an instrument I was quite hyped about it, as you could pretty much play any song you wanted on the ocarina.
I just felt dumb when playing the harp, wish I could've plugged in my guitar instead ...
