Is it hard to learn keys?

I am thinking of buying a used Casio keyboard.
Is it hard to learn? Is YouTube a great place to learn?
I am a self taught guitarist, not the best at it and am keen to learn keys so I can use that in my songwriting.

    If you can play guitar and read music, keys are fairly simple to learn the basics.
    I SAW PEARL JAM

    Hmmm, when you play guitar, do you know which notes/chords you're playing? That would make the transition a little easier. Chords on the piano are a little more difficult when transitioning over, but it comes in time.

    I know only some haha.
    Hey, the Beatles did not know how to read music either so that gives me hope.
