I started up at 44. The biggest obstacle is finding the time to commit to it. I will say, taking a few lessons helps though. Even with youtube, etc you dont yet know what you dont know. A real person helped me put it all together much faster. Then i can go tab central and youtube to pick up new stuff.

Not at all, definitely go for it.Plenty of good examples out there.
Depending on your goals and how quickly you want to achieve them you'll need an investment of minimum 1 hour a day, day in day out. If you just want to play simple chords - the progress will be fast. If you want to (eventually) play something difficult you should get a teacher, who, in the beginning, makes sure your hands position and posture is correct. You don't have to take the lessons too often if you record them and look at yourself in the mirror while practicing. After that you can move on with self-study resources completely or hire somebody to teach you on-line for cheap ($10-15/hour).
Having said this, it is totally possible to learn by using on-line resources and enjoy the process and the results (just set your expectations accordingly.).

You just need to learn a few chords, practice changing between them...then add additional chords as needed to play more songs

I found that these chords are pretty basic.... C, G, F, D, E, A, and then learn B minor. You can play almost anything with the first three since most songs are only 3 chords. :lol:

No, you can learn an instrument at any age.

I've been using Fender Play (from a deal on here) and other online resources to learn.

Definitely a worthwhile investment of time, especially when you're stuck indoors for the winter.

You should check out Rocksmith.

Friend of mine has this, sounds way better than my fender (and I paid over $700 for mines). Beautiful resonance. Very good guitar especially for $200!

This is a classical guitar, I've always preferred their sound

The Ibanez is a nylon guitar. I believe the FG800 uses steel strings. Totally different guitars. I'd get the guitar for the type of music you want to play.

The guitar has a pickup that allows you to use a guitar cable and plug it into an acoustic guitar amplifier / usb interface (for recording) / PA system.

On a regular non-electric nylon guitar, you would have to use a microphone.

I've been playing guitar for over 20 years and I absolutely love this amp https://peavey.com/vypyr-x1-guita...p/03617730

There is an acoustic mode on this amp, but you can even plug a bass guitar into it and it sounds beautiful in my opinion.

Edit: I just realized it'd be hard to get before Christmas. Sorry about that. Still, for future reference, this amp is great.

Rocksmith is a fun way to get you interested in playing and learning, but there are so many resources on YouTube, that you can learn if you commit the time to it

this is not a classical guitar: it is too narrow at the nut. It also has some other non-classical features (which are not as important, considering the price and intended audience ).
