I play the ukulele(Oscar Schmidt Tenor and Luna Baritone) and harmonica(Hohners)....all equally poorly, but with enthusiasm.

I also sing....badly.

Best Regards,

I play saxophone most weekends in an R&B/funk band. We do the the typical casino and corporate gigs. Just relaxing today beer we hit the road to so a corporate party at Jack Londons Square in Oakland. Been playing since I was 12 and was a double major in college... Music and electrical engineering. Fortunately my day job is in a big semiconductor company with music on the weekends.

I am 45 years old, am I too old to start learning to play an acoustic guitar? I have been looking at a seagull s6 dreadnought. Is it too much guitar for starters. And as far as instruments I have played, I played a Sousaphone and a French horn in high school twenty-five plus years ago.

Pricier guitar = generally better action, intonation, ff = easier to play!

I recently picked up a Remo Djembe. Always been kind of a rap-a-tap-tapper.. Picked up a decent hand drum and I was amazed how it all became music instead of an annoying tick.

Ron, you definately can. I'm in my mid 50's and have just started playing guitar and ukulele (as I can't play drums due to a problem with my knee which I'm working through), and I'm enjoying the heck out of it. If you want to do it, have the time and put in the work, you should be able to pick it up. Good luck an keep us posted. That seagull looks like a nice guitar, if you like it, get it. I'm personally playing a couple of Taylor's I've acquired. Play what you like and can afford.
