Age UGH Celebrated my 491/2 birthday

So which was it? Four-hundred-and-ninety-first or four-hundred-and-ninety-second? I suppose if you're that advanced in years, one birthday's pretty much the same as another....you do look remarkably well for it though!

Sorry Kath - couldn't resist!

No, Vic, it is a half birthday. Specifically, 491 / 2 = 245.5 ;)

Sorry Kath! :D

I'm 57 years old and have been playing for about 5 1/2 years, actually now that I think about it its pretty close to 6 years. I'm a native New Yorker, lived in the city until 1977 then moved out on Long Island. I play mostly acoustic, My instruments include: Martin D-15, Seagul S6+Folk, Washburn D10S12DL 12 string, Jay Turser (Jr) 12 string, Martin LXME, Washburn Rover, a Yamaha Pacifica electric with a Kustom practice amp, an old Hondo Bass, 2 ukes, and a keyboard that I can't play. Actually I can't play any of them very well, I'm the eternal beginner, but maybe GN will help me change that.

i was trying to avoid rthis but here goes:

I'm 49.
Been playing if you can call it that, for about 5 years.
I have Fender Highway One telecaster, a PRS Santana SE, a Martin 000C-16GTE, a Seagull S6+Folk, a Daisy Rock 12 string electric, an Ibanez bass which i probably have to sell because it's too heavy for me to play, a Seagull M6 also for sale, and a no-name 1/2 size acoustic.
My amp is a Fender Bues Jr.
I live in New York City.

So far, based on the poll...we've got somewhat of the "mature" crowd as our main blogging guitarists. (Yes, I use that term loosely) Makes me feel good. Now I don't get that "Man..what are you doing trying to learn how to play guitar at your age" feeling anymore. Based on the hundreds of threads that I've read on the site, there doesn't seem to be any generation gap with the younger guys and gals here. Isn't the internet a wonderful thing! Thank Al Gore for inventing the internet!

Maybe they just come unstrung.

Yes, I think that 'play electric guitar' has probably become the new 'sports car' as the popular mid-life crisis solution of choice. (Old age crisis my case...)

Apart from a few senility induced tendencies - such as forgetting chord progressions, and doing odd things like checking your avatar to see if the candle has burned down to your head yet... ... there seems no reason at all not to take up music (or most things) at any age. This year guitar, next year ascents of Mount Everest and Elle McPherson (not necesarily in that order..)

How long have I been playing: Well... this is about the 4th time I've learned/played guitar and about the longest I've stuck with it at 19 months ... and having a blast. Been jamming with some guys at work and I'm about to take part in some 'band-like' jams around the area. Wish me luck :o

Who can afford a sports car or a Harley Davidson these days?

Once upon a time I did look forward to joining the Ulysses Motor Cycle Club (you have to be 50 to become a member) 'cause I love their motto - Grow Old Disgracefully.

It's a lot easier to take those mid-life crisis male menopause blues out on a guitar than a bike or car.... and a lot safer, too!
