I am 42 and just getting serious again. I started playing when I was quite young but life seemed to get in the way. I am quite rusty but I seem to appreicate it more now than I did then. Cudos to all who are starting, or starting again later in life.

Never to old to jam!

whenever things seem clumsy remember once you master a few basic chords there are literally thousands of song you can play. variations of chords can come with time to add more flavor to the tune.

This is a thread from another source wherin a *14-year old* asks the question, “Is it too late in life..?” (“I’m too old to take it all in now.”) Some of the responses are equally amusing (“You’re too old when you’re dead.”)

It seems to me that, coming from a 14-year old, the question is ridiculous. And that opens up the discussion; when does it stop being ridiculous? I wonder...but I think I know.

I can now play Apache, Ghost Riders in the Sky, and Wonderful Land by the Shadows,
As well as Danny Boy, But these are all basically easy , compared to cords which I am having a lot of trouble with,
But still having trouble changing from one cord to another and my right hand just forgets how to strum, will I ever be able to play or am I just to Old, Please be honest I don’t mind the truth, better to know than to carry on with some thing I will never be able to do or master,
Just so it helps my Taste in music and the music I would love to play is American 50s Rock & Roll / Doo Wop.
Many Thanks for any Help Keith

You are definitely not too old A good idea will be to get a competent teacher, it will save you a lot of trouble and frustration. I have many students that started after 50 and they are doing perfectly well.
