  1. What about the flute? I’ve always loved it. But you don’t mention this as a good choice for oldsters. Is it more difficult?

    • Hello Penny,

      The flute is also a great choice. It involves correct breathing techniques, which can be a difficult element to learning but once achieved is especially beneficial for the elderly.

      Thanks,

  2. I’ve never played an instrument. I’d rather not learn one requiring strength of lungs. Unfortunately and sadly. Guitar sounds like fun I think. I just don’t know. I’m scared my mind won’t allow me to remember notes or chords or whatever you call them. I’m afraid I can’t learn anymore. Can you imaging how that must feel? See my dilemma? I want this bad but I’m afraid. Can you help me figure something out? I’m 62 YO and worked as a paralegal.

    • Hello Lynette,

      It can be challenging to learn an instrument for the first time. A guitar sounds like a great choice. If you dedicate some time each week to learning and improving then you will be able to slowly master and remember a few basic chords.

      There are lots of great guides for beginners to help you get started. Although it is daunting, the rewards will be worth it.

      Best wishes,

    • I am a younger person and have played many instruments, but I was limited by hand pain. I think ukulele is a better choice than guitar if you have chronic pain. The smaller size and lighter strings are great if you don’t have a lot of grip strength. I’ve been playing ukulele for a few years and my hands are starting to get strong enough to handle playing on a guitar. I have also heard that electric guitar is a better choice than acoustic if you have hand or wrist pain.
