    AlanT and Ibm59, stop it!
    You are making me feel inadequate. I havent got a musical bone in my body. I wish I had. I think I was put off at school and tried to play the clarinet. Not very hygienic when it's not your own and some spotty catarrh ridden kid has been playing it in the previous lesson.

    Getting off may not be quite as “ easy “

    You're never too late to learn, you'd be surprised how you'd get on if you pick an instrument that you really fancy and give it a go. Even better if someone can get you started, or a tutor. I've started lots of people over the years and some of them now play alongside me in the local pub or open mic nights.

    For me it started as a winter hobby between fishing seasons many moons ago but I really enjoyed it and kept going. Just find the right person to get you started.

    I started piano two years ago (I'm 74), and love every minute of it. It is very therapeutic apart from anything else. Not sure my wife agrees sometimes though

    I don't do any of the "Grade" stuff, although I can read the music of course. I just told my teacher "I just want to play tunes!". I started with a book called "It's Never too late to learn piano".

    Highly recommend anyone to start playing.

    I’ve been playing for over 50 years.

    Just doing the return journey with my mother who has been with us for over 2 weeks over christmas.
    Decided to come down and back on the same day. 3 and a half hours to come down. Hoping for just over 3 on the way back.
    At least the trip down was in the light.
    I think I've got this work life balance thingy right.

    That is to say I spend more time in work thinking about fishing than I spend fishing and thinking about work!

    Walked up to Glenashdale Falls on a wild Arran day.
    Forestry work on the right bank made it hard going for the last half mile.
    Came back down the left bank via the Iron Age fort. Slippy underfoot due surfaced tree roots and pine needles. Glad of Meindls.

    Mad - am at the falls viewpoint.
    Note the pinched SST
