Learning the guitar... -
October 24th 2011, 12:46 AM
I'm 15 years old and all of my friends who play the guitar have been playing for years, but I'd love to give it a shot. I've always loved the art of guitar playing from a listeners perspective and I'd like to see if I'm any good. I also need something to concentrate on other than computers, and I think this might be a positive focus for me.
My main question is.. am I too old? Have I missed the boat?
When I pass my first exam in sixth form and I go up and get my Grade 2 certificate, that might be a bit embarrassing..

15 is not that old, I just picked up on the drums about a month ago and I'm way older than you and have ZERO experience with music. The key thing here is to really focus if you really want to play the guitar I usually like to watch videos on Youtube and follow along but also try going by yourself you will also learn a lot that way. Listen to a song you like and play along it by touch. Tell us how it goes. Good Luck.
Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.
