14, I saw my friend play it at school. I ask him to help me out and then I ask my Mom to buy me a guitar.

I started when I was 8 and played for about a year and a half. I picked it back up when I was 15.

i was a bit late to the party - started when i was 24. Saw the Who in concert, and seeing Pete Townsend hitting those big full, orchestral chords with a vengeance in the Rock Opera, Tommy, on his (at that time) SG through a mountain of HiWatts, jumping in the air, and doing those windmills like a perpetual motion machine - well, I was hooked. A couple days later I was the proud owner of a new SG Standard...

GIG4FUN and BMW-KTM, LOL! I gotta say you may have tied for first for the shortest sentences ever on an online forum - LESS than one word!

I remember being gifted a mini-guitar when I was nine :). Couldn't properly play a guitar until I was sixteen. Been having multiple guitars now but I still keep the first mini-guitar back then. Sweet memory.

I was 14. I’ll be 40 in April. Played in a lot of bands and such but not so much in the last 4 years. I’m getting back into writing for real now.

I started playing in the late 60s. I was 14 or 15 at the time.

Got my first guitar at 9 - a log of a Harmony acoustic. But, I didn't start seriously playing until about 14. That was 41 years ago and I am still learning!

I started in high school.

Had nobody to teach me a thing. We didn't have the internet and I did not know music.

I had to just figure it out, took me forever. Finally nailed down a power chord and that opened up the world to me.
Used my ear to just figure out song after song.
