Hello,
I was researching the differences in musical instruments when someone told me that the main difference is the amount of overtones after the Fundamental frequency. Is this true? Could I distiguish instruments from one another just by counting the amount of overtones? Seems like there is a lot more to it than just that... like perhaps the ADSR of a sound? Or am I digging to deep?

Thanks
Jay
