Is it hard for a thirty six year old male to learn to play the guitar efficiently? And how long would it take!

I like what that dude said, it's never too late to try anything. I'm thinkin' I might try that Cow Bell - ya can never have too much Cow Bell. maybe we can Jam sometime? you playin' guitar, me smackin' Cow Bell and that dude speaking incoherent Spanish like Riccardo Montoban.

Nothing is hard for a determined mind.I too tried on guitar but failed only due to small fingers which could not reach the seventh string.long fingers make it very easy ,if you have long fingers it is a plus point and u can easily take to it

Nothing is too hard if you really want to do it. as for age, im 78 and learning Spanish, it's work but poco a poco.

Everybody has music inside them you just need to show it on the outside in your case through guitar!



Anything is possible if you just try!

this is just my experience from learning and teaching guitar
1.most anyone at any age can learn how to play
2. the rate you learn at depends on alot of things; your natural aptitude for guitar(for most it is extremely akward and inconcievable at first), how often anf how well you practice , how much you maintain your intrest(this doent sound important at first; most people that give up at it say they got bored)
3.learning guitar is an ongoing process people learn different ways and it taked diffetent intervals to learn most people i know and have taught dont think they sound good til playing for around a year so patience will go a long ways
4.if you want to learn faster i would recommend learning to read some kind of music(usually tab is preferred for guitar) and taking lessons or at least find a friend who would be willing to kind of mentor you and dont be afraid to play with other people everyone plays differently and you can learn their technique

Anyone at any age can learn to play the guitar. The amount of time it will take you to learn depends on how fast of a learner you are. Best of luck!! :)
