Too Old To Learn Guitar Or Music Theory?

Learning music theory or how to play the guitar is both fun and rewarding. However, is there an expiration date on when you can actually start learning for the first time?

To be honest, this video might not be for you. If you are someone who has never had a doubt in their mind regarding their playing or ability to learn new things, then thats great! It sounds like you've got yourself figured out and don't really need the extra help.

However, if you are someone reading this who has ever thought they might have missed their opportunity to learn guitar or music theory, or even if you've heard a friend or family member say something like that, then I highly recommend you check out this video. I will answer the age-old question "am I too old to learn guitar?". The answer to this might not be what you think!

So, after watching this video, what are your thoughts on the matter? Do you still think that a person could possibly be too old to learn a new instrument? Let's talk in the comments!
