wilco Am I too old to learn? (144* d) RE: Am I too old to learn? 13 Nov 06

About three years ago, we started open jams here in South East Tennessee, for traditional acoustic music. I estimate that about 1500 different musicians (of all levels) have come through the jams, which have split again and again.
    I also have small acoustic music store, with several instructors.
My suggestion would be the following instruments: auto-harp, resonator square-neck guitar, and lap dulcimer.
    Find a welcoming group of people to play with, and have a great time.
    In my store, I've seen everything!!!! There's one elderly gentlemen who even took-up banjo at age 81! I've seen lots and lots of fiddlers from age 3 to 85.
    I don't do internet sales, but I would be happy to make some suggestions and give price guidance.
