Learning to play guitar is something that can be done at any age. Young or old, it is never too soon or too late to start and it is such a fun and rewarding thing to do.
Progress really comes down to practice and I’ve seen people go from literally not being able to playing a note to singing and playing their favorite song in a matter of months.
I’d suggest that younger children under the age of about 10 should initially learn to play on a 3/4 size guitar because stretching to play chords on a full size guitar can be a little difficult.
Grown ups…just grab yourself any full size guitar and jump in!
Guitars can be picked up really inexpensively online and if you’re in the right place at the right time you may even bag yourself a right old bargain at your local charity shop.
A beginner student of mine recently turned up with a really nice acoustic guitar they picked up for a tenner :).
Or just ask your friends. I guarantee someone will have an old acoustic from their student days tucked away in the loft somewhere…shame to leave it to gather dust so pick it up and give it a friendly strum!
There really is no excuse.
