Adult Beginner

"I used to play guitar when I was younger, but I quit. I really wish I would have stuck with it."
"I always wanted to play and told myself over and over that I'd eventually get around to it. Now I'm so busy with work and family that I don't know if I have enough time."
"I just retired and have the free time I need to dedicate to the music I've always wanted to play, but I haven't played in such a long time/never played before."
