    Hmm guys I'm just wondering is it too late that I've picked up the interest in Guitar?

    I actually got interest in music at the age 16 but only started playing the guitar at the age 17 but only started proper classes and wanted to know all about the guitar at the age 18 ...

    Now I'm 19 ... its been 1 year since i play the guitar and i totally suck at it .. i only know the basic chords which are mostly found in the first three frets. But i always got the determination to play better and even took up classical guitar course which I'm attending regularly ..

    Here in singapore , its very hard to find Indians who are interested in guitars and music .. More of them are into dance groups ...

    So do you'll think I started learning too late and its hard to be someone in music ?

    Do drop in ya comments ....

    LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO WAY.......it isnt late at all....learning is a neverending process.......for all of us (learning guitar) its bn the same ......so it wont be any special or difficult for u......but yes we all r at different stages rite now........as far is guitaring is concerned u need to be patient n passionate........practice is the only mantra.....n buddy there isnt any shortcut.......n now that u hv started it, just continue with it........n as u said u dont know much of the chords then get ur self a chord chart n practice........ppl here can only guide n rest u hv to do it urself..........so just practice practice n practice

    u r only 19, have like a 10 year plan. u should be an asweomse guitarist by the time u r 29.. with 10 years expereience.. that would be awesome wont it? also u should listen to good music.. and listen a lot.. and become a good musician by ear that helps a lot too with your playing.

    There are two things that you shouldn't worry about being late in doing: losing your virginity and playing guitar. What really matters is how much of it you do once you start.

    trust me, unless you pick up a guitar by the time you are 9, you havent a chance of making it big... which is why i never will learn how to play the guitar.... i turned 10 recently...

    Umm.. that's like, no man.. I know of good players who learn by say 21/22 and still come out to play good gigs and stuff...

    Yeah, if you want ur name to be on par with the legends, then yeah, u're right...

    you know you're not late ...
    you just want someone to agree and push you over the line, so that with your laziness added, you can easily give up playing guitar

    its not the early age that counts for leveling with legends,
    its just determination n xposure.
