Question: I have played (played, not really practiced...) guitar for three years now. I want to start playing guitar seriously, but I'm already 17 years old. Can I still become a guitar virtuoso?

Tom Hess's Answer: MANY guitarists message me with this same concern (so you are not alone). I tell every one of them the same thing:

Age is just a number. No matter how old you are, you CAN become an incredible guitarist! The only thing that holds you back is your own mindset. Fact is, I have helped many guitar players who were 40 or older become great players. As long as you are truly committed to achieving your guitar playing goals, you will achieve them regardless of your age.

Get started on the path to becoming a virtuoso guitar player right now by working together with a great guitar teacher.
