We all think that in order to become amazing on the guitar, we need to start at a very early age. This is not true at all. I have been teaching the guitar for many years. 90 percent of my students are adults who had never played the guitar before.
What is amazing about that, is that they all have really great results. Not everybody wants to become another Jimi Hendrix or Slash. Some people just want to strum Knocking on Heavens Door in the evening and have some fun with their friends. A lot of people who started early also gave up early. I have a lot of friends who don’t touch the guitar anymore. They started playing at the age of 6 or 7, and by the age of 20 they had burned out. They lost their passion for the music. Isn’t that proof enough that you are not too late to jump on the guitar journey train.
You can do it, you can have amazing results and have so much satisfaction from your “hobby”.
It is not about changing the world by recording albums and playing big stages, it is about sharing the love for music with our families and friends and having something else relaxing to do, after a long day at work.
