    I played the piano when young. When my kids were small I wanted a guitar and taught myself to play one song called "Jimmy Crack Corn" because it was so easy. It would be unpopular to even talk about now days as I learned it had a connection to slavery!

    Anyway, I stopped with the guitar because I had to cut my fingernails short to play, and didn't doing like that.

    I think you would have enjoyed it and excelled at it.
    It's never too late. Make a few chords.

    It's all in the timing.

    Those, like myself, who are Download Politics refugees had a rule on the old forum that we could only quote one paragraph from an article.

    It's easy to trim the vid link off any quoted post - and if the quote isn't critical, only the reference and linkback, it's easy to do this, also:

    Ok. Never mind. We'll just say it irritates me to see long posts quoted for nothing.

    Carry on.

    Did everyone see the OP? If not, please do so.

    And please, no more off topic remarks. No derailing this thread.
