I’m 57 and I started playing violin/fiddle a few months ago. I have played guitar for 40+ years and wanted to try something new. It certainly is challenging, but in the best possible way. I absolutely fell in love with Gypsy fiddle music and am currently taking lessons in fiddle and violin, both from online providers. My biggest challenge at the moment is trying to figure out a practice routine. I also have a tendency to overdo it sometimes and that causes me pain in various areas. My fault, but sometimes I just can’t play for a short period of time.
