Hehe, I think no-one no matter what age is too old to learn, I know however that in our heart of hearts we all wish we had started at 5 years of age and grown to become fabulous virtuoso's! laugh.gif wink.gif

Too Old, nah I'm much older than you and I just started learning this past father's day (june 2007), I've been watching the video lessons here and I also have a lesson with a teacher once a week at the local music store. Playing the guitar is great and lot's of fun. Remember one thing, hard work and practice is the key to becomming a great guitar player. Good luck to you and I look forward to hearing something you have recorded soon.

You wish.

You're only too old to learn guitar when you're in your later life with regrets. Good choice to start now and I wish you well. Practice as often as possible but more importantly every day for at least 30 mins to start. Good luck and ask any questions you have.
