mike_s Posted January 24, 2016 Share Posted January 24, 2016 Hello, new to the site and the concertina. I am a retired guy pushing 70. I currently play guitar and mandolin, and have recently taken up a keen interest in traditional Irish music. I have attended one slow session and intend to attend whenever possible. Being retired, I have lots of time to practice. I have found the guitar is an accompaniment instrument an as such isn't a whole lot of fun in the session. The mandolin is hard to hear, plus I never played any Irish tunes so am cramming hard, but before I get too far along.... I really like the sound of the concertina and plan to rent a 30 button Anglo. My question is given average musical ability (I am no savant-that's for sure) about how long will it take until I feel comfortable in a session? I can get lessons about once a month. Also is my age an issue in learning? Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
