I wasted my junior high playing with computer games, and now im a senior in high school, and got into queen and rock music about 2 years back. now im absolutely desperate to learn and instrument (and music theory - how i regret my time wasting) but i fear it is too late for me, as iam gonna be 16 soon.

Relax, it's far from too late for you. Take up an instrument and enjoy!

No, you're arrogant, there's a difference.


Thomas is right, you are down right arrogant. You are very talented, but your attitude is ugly.

You're 16 and getting ready to graduate???!!!
I'm 15 and I just started 9th grade!
Anyway, it's not to late for you. It's just gonna be hard to take lessons at your school seeing as how you're going to graduate. I recommend finding an instrument and finding someone local who can teach you.
I personally started out on piano 5 years ago. I then started clarinet, and bass guitar. I can play a little bit of sax too. But piano's pretty nice to get started on.

Pick what you want to play. Something you enjoy the sound of. Not something because of outside influences or dumb reasons (I'd tell you mine for why I play the violin, but that's my masked example of a dumb reason *stupid adolescents*).

This way you will be happy.

But advice-wise, I'd say piano. I love it. :D

Hey, you're at the best time. You're past the age where all our parents forced us to take piano, violin,a nd guitar lessons.

Take up something weird, like the jewsharp or the koto or the dijeridu. It'll put you in high demand for weird rock bands.

Well, I don't like it because it gives you goose bumps when you play it wrong :D And I never learned how to 'tounge' O_o

There are instruments that sound worse when played horribly (oboe? anyone?).

And I'm just waiting for someone to grill you on your "not being able to tongue" remark.

Any of the reed instruments sound like ass when not played correctly. I hate people who picked up a sax and just blew into them. That is why I served 10-15 years.

16 isnt too old to learn an instrument!! im about to learn the drums (when my brother in law finally decides im worth the time!!)but dude! like someone said, start with the piano... if i can learn to play a few songs in less than a week, anyone can learn it! and writing music isnt that hard. took me two days to figure out the basics (for piano... i dont actually write it though). go ahead... start a band, and i'll be there with bells on and glow sticks to cheer you on (and borrow money most likely). rock on!

ive just thought of another thing you could do... sing! its not hard! just take drugs, drink and smoke to get the rough edge and sing your favourite song! its how most rock stars do it... well the hardcore ones anyway.

LOL... must add a reply to this cos i'm an oboist (thanks Victoria :P) but i'd have to agree that double reed instruments are particularly difficult, it is incredibly hard and one could liken the sound to a duck when people start. However! the key is not to give up... i've played the oboe for around 9 years and just passed my grade 8. It IS one of the most beautiful instruments there is when played properly.

Hell yes...I played French horn for two years, decided I didn't like it, and gave it up. Now I regret it...the only thing I remember how to play is the New World fucking Symphony, and one line of it to boot.

Chezza, that's what I was saying. The not so great technique ones, dear. ;)

Awesome oboes are awesome!
