Fredbot is my recommendation when it comes to the best of all discord  bot.

Fredbot is a highly rated music bot which is better than rhythm bot and plays a good quality music.

Believe me, you won’t find it hard to write the commands once you get used to it.

I specifically use this bot as it can play music from every source youtube, spotify even from my computer storage.
