As a young person I'd tried recorder, drum and piano with various levels of success but, being given a choice of whatever instrument I wanted to learn gave me the chance to really explore the options available. Guitar and the other fretted instruments held no appeal for me and Violin annoyed the heck out of me. Cello had some appeal but wasn't really ... well ... weird enough for me. After a lot of trying various instruments and deciding they truly weren't for me I narrowed down my options finally settling on harp. Then came the decision making process of what style of harp, how many strings, what size etc. After a lot of trying of various harps belonging to friends of friends and in various stores I finally found an instrument that truly resonated with me (pun intended). A double-strung harp was what I wanted. If you're determined to learn an instrument, and you are NEVER too old to learn, don't let any doomsayers or negative ninnies tell you that you can't.
