GUEST,Mathew What Do People Do... (24) RE: What Do People Do... 19 Apr 18

I've only just recently turned 24, so I realize that my frame of reference is more narrow than some, but there has never been a point in my life that music has not been all-encompassing.

My grandfather played fiddle, guitar, accordion, piano and bass. He taught me the basics and I loved hearing him sing until he died about ten years ago.

His death thrust me even further into music, and I started learning to play many of the same instruments he did (Fiddle, guitar, accordion) and others he did not (Concertina, harmonica, mandolin, ukulele) Music also helped me put his death in perspective.

Now I play at pubs, I play at parties and I play at folk clubs. I listen to music all night at my office job.

My point is that when I read of people turning away from music when they get older, I become terrified.

How do you not feel as if there is a gaping hole in your entire life without music?

**I realize I may get slammed with comments about my youth but I'm ready**
