Music is the best outlet for releasing emotions and dealing with your inner turmoil. It is also a way to bring life to the child and artist inside of you. Each person will have different talents and interests that determine the form of art that is best for them. One thing that ties us all together regardless of age, gender, or culture, is music.
Maybe you cannot teach old dogs new tricks, but that does not always apply to humans. You can pick up music at any age because the talent lives within your heart. You will need to learn technique and music theory, but the passion comes from what is already present within. Music enhances the natural beauty and emotion that lives in everyone.
"My guitar is not a thing. It is an extension of myself. It is who I am". -Joan Jett
Releasing creative energy when playing the guitar will actually reduce stress in your life as well. Some say that playing the guitar is even more relaxing than fishing on serene waters. This stress-relief boosts the immune system like nothing else. Ultimately, everyone should have some form of artistic release, and music is by far the most effective.
