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?

You know, I read "Back and forth" as "Backhand Forte"... I don't know how that happened. :o (Eek) But it sounded a lot cooler and a lot more confusing that way.

XD Awesome picture, though! :D

The harp simplistic and easy, while the ocarina gives you the thrill of actually being Link seeing as you have to actual memorize the song.

Pros and cons. When you play the ocarina you have to memorize buttons. When you play the lyre, you must have rythm playing it.

But I still choose Ocarina of Time over Skyward Swords for a lot of reasons. Not that SS was terrible, just, missing things, certain atmospheres and challenges. And the enemies looked horribly cutey-fied. xD Bothered me a lot. I mean I see a lot of round silly fat goblins in with child voices in SS, or that octopus girl which looked like from the pixar movie. OOT had enemies like Dead Hands, and the music of that dungeon already made me not want to go there. xD THAT is what the triforce of courage should be all about.

yeah one of the many dissapoints i had was that tou don't actually play the harp and just wave the still. unlike OOT and WW where you actully get to press buttons. plus The blowing in Spirit tracjs gives it a realistic feel. even the songs only have the harp in the background and tou don't reallylearn other songs to unlock things like the other games

I was somewhat saddened by the Harp, honestly.
It may have been that I had just played Spirit Tracks with it's Guitar Hero Pan Flute, but I expected more from it overall.

Personally I hated the harp. I never played Ocarina of Time, but I played Skyward Sword for a bit, before my Wii got hit during a storm. Keep in mind this was a few years back, so I don't remember much, but GOD, that bloody harp made me so tense. Of course, I super-glued a blade to my remote for the fun of it, so what do I know?

I personally like the ocarina better. Mainly because I labeled the notes to the keys on my keyboard so I can play any song XD

You get to play the harp also in Eldin, sometimes there are walls that you can play harp on front of to get hearts, you have to play it for the final trial in Skyloft, and it's pretty much all I remember.

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.
