What is the Best Age to start to learn?

There is NO UNIVERSAL “best age” to start learning how to play guitar. Young teens (12-15) seem to learn the fastest! They just get it! But there are lots of retired folks over 60 years young who are having fun learning to play using online lessons too. So I would say that as long as you have a desire to learn, are willing to spend time practicing, and are between the ages of 8 to 80… YOU’VE got what it takes to learn to play guitar! So what are you waiting for?
