It didn't surprise me. Most of the players I know are adults picking up an instrument for the first time.Is anyone else surprised by the poll, one way or another? I had prior experience, so that colored my expectation. I thought there’d be way more with experience than the poll shows.
Anyone fee the opposite?
Most of my serious music experience is in the past 10 years, though I played enough as a kid and on-and-off attempts through the years I'd get a technical "yes" on this poll anyway.
Or maybe not a technicality? I remembered enough theory and concepts that it was a bug boost when I picked up guitar again (before uke) as an adult. I didn't struggle with what notes or chords or rhythms were, since I already had those down even if my fingers didn't remember the shapes. My uncle started uke as a true newbie, and he's had a hard time with those.
