You are never too old to play the guitar if you have the desire and determination. Remove any doubts from your mind and start playing. Learning to play the guitar or any musical instrument takes time and patience which applies to everyone regardless of age.
It may be easier for younger people to learn and absorb new information than it is for older people. However, age is not a barrier. It’s essential to keep our brains active as we age. Be sure to purchase a new or used guitar that is not too big and is comfortable to play.
Research has shown that learning music at any age is a great way to stay mentally fit.
