Hi elias1974. I didn't start until I was over 50, and it's certainly not too old to enjoy it and to be able to play for family and friends, though it helps to have a good teacher. In fact I didn't really make much progress until I found a teacher. I wish I'd started when I was only 36! :wink:

Some said that it takes one year per string... When you'll turn 42, you'll be very young still :mrgreen:
Just enjoy it and have fun. It's a great journey, enjoy every single note!

At least there are only six strings. Imagine how long it must take for a lute at 10 years per string! :wink:

Hi Geoff. I remember some electric guitar album of the seventies entitled : “ Six Strings Nine Lives ”. That’s more like it, I guess… :lol:

Yes, if I had nine lives, I might finally have some hope of mastering the instrument. :lol:
