GUEST,Terry When you first made music? (77* d) RE: When you first made music? 30 Jan 00


This may be a thread which can help a struggling non-musician. 5 years ago I bought a piano to see if (at age 51) I could better fulfil my lifetime love of music. I confirmed over the last 5 years that I have no talent whatsoever, can only play Grade 1 stuff, and really badly at that. I had some lessons but got not much from them, though I still intend to resume lessons when time permits. I'd like to play guitar (probably to the same level of incompetence). Question is, has anybody been in a similar predicament and found a way to progress? Is there any "instrument/technique/other" so that the completely talentless can start to achieve the kind of pleasure that real musicians experience? Terry
