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?

Ocarina wins because it's actually playable.

There's a song called back and forth
and they basically say ''back... and forth'' for the whole time

I remembered the songs easily. I was disappointed that you couldnt replay any song in skyward sword.

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.

I was somehow bad at the harp
Or maybe Fi just didn't feel like singing?

I was always driven insane by the stupid harp/lyre...
But I always loved the ocarina. So much, I actually now own five of the things... ^^;

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 ...

With my bad rhythm I could not play the harp at all in SS. I just strummed until Fi finished her song.

I'm not a nostalgic, but Ocarina > Harp. The ocarina is actually fun to use, while the harp is just annoying.

Ocarina. 

After a while, you'd just hit the notes at the same speed that the song played.
