I’ve decided at the ripe old age of 56 that I am going to teach myself how to play the drums. You see we just bought a drum set for our 16 year old son’s recent birthday. I played acoustic guitar a bit when I was in high school. I had hoped to be able to play an electric guitar by the time I was 50, but life happened. Now my son, who has taught himself how to play guitar, is teaching himself how to play the drums. I would learn how to play guitar now, but then I would have to have short fingernails, and that ain’t happening.
