    It's never too late, beautiful 💖💖💖

    Yousician is decent esp for the free one and plenty on YouTube
    I'll admit having a teacher is best because I started with a teacher when I was 8 for a year and then I had to stop but from then on I was able to basically teach myself everything up until now (17)
    Watch on Youtube this adult violinist who shows her progress over 2 years, it really motivates you

    Just as long as you don't

    have a GF....

    You're never "too old" to learn anything.

    Check out Marty Schwartz on YouTube, he's fantastic.

    Learn the basic chords first
