There really is a very simple answer to that question and it would be a resounding ‘NO!’ as many people feel that they may be too old to learn and that comes from very many different age groups.
In fact, age has nothing whatsoever to do with learning guitar and this applies if you are a fourteen-year-old or seventy-four years old, if you are physically able to fret the strings on the fretboard (your fingers move freely) then you can learn guitar.
To be honest some of the questions that are asked like ‘is it harder for adults to learn guitar?’ might be answered as yes but not for the reasons that many think. The one big advantage that younger people have is that they have more time to practice because people over twenty have a lot less free time on their hands due to other commitments like work, a family, and other responsibilities.
So, it is probably the lack of time that is the biggest inhibiting factor to learning the guitar and seeing as an hour a day at the very least is required then it becomes obvious why so many people who would love to learn – don’t.
But if you find yourself with the time on your hands and still have that hankering to learn to play for whatever reason then do check out some of the sites online that can help you a great deal, but remember, just like anything else you are searching for, read reviews on the sites you are interested in whether that is reviews of new slot sites or learning to play guitar sites you want to make sure that you are going to be safe and secure and that you are not going to get bored.
What you will need is a step-by-step system which you can follow easily where the lessons get a little harder the further you progress. Videos and tutorials help you feel as if you are not alone and you will be more inclined to return to the lessons when you see that you are making progress.
Take the late-great Lemmy (reportedly got his name from lend-me a quid for the slot machines) of Mototrhead, He only showed interested in the guitar when he saw another pupil at school with one and a group of girls about him. Apparently Lemmy’s mother had a guitar and although he could not play, he took it to school and he himself was surrounded by girls.
Luckily for us, after seeing the Beatles perform at the Cavern when he was just sixteen Lemmy learned to play guitar practicing along to their first album Please Please Me.
