What's with this age thing?
Can you play? Can you sing? Are you interested in learning from those around you? Seems to me that should be all you need here. As far as I'm concerned, even good listeners are welcome in any musical gathering — cyberspace or meatspace — if they're interested in what's going on. I play and sing regularly with lots of people ranging in age from 13 to 75 and we all enjoy it.
Welcome aboard, youngsters. You newbies may find that the entire Mudcate supply of Prozac is allocated to Mbo, so you have to bring your own, but that shouldn't get in your way. A little enthusiasm is a good thing.
