    OWNED a bass since '72(I was 14).
    Began playing sometime in my 30s(?).
     
  9. I started when I was 14, and wish that I had started earlier. Oh, now I am 17.

    Not at all. A musical instrument is something you can enjoy for the rest of your life. My grandmother played piano in the church from my first memories of her until her death at 88 years old. My wife's grandmother has had her poetry published and she only started writing when she was 92.

    I started when i was 14, i'm 16 now. To be more exact, i've been playing 22 months. And boy oh boy.. do i wish i started when i was like 10 years old. Then, all this hard stuff i'm going through would be OVER.... right now i'm faced with a big brick wall.....
