    I started in 5th grade and took it for 3 years. Started band at school in 6th grade (clarinet..........super gay, lol). Started guitar in 8th grade. Didn't need any lessons by that point because piano and band taught me what's what about music

    As a kid we had a Casio keyboard with the light up keys to learn and play songs. I never learned any.

    I have no musical talent. I sucked at the recorder when we had to play it in 3rd grade. I sucked at the violin when we had to play it in 5th grade. In college I bought a crappy guitar for 40 bucks at a pawn shop and downloaded some tabs from the internet. I got to the point where I could get halfway through a few John Mayer songs without messing up before we drunkenly smashed the guitar on my roommate's head for shits and giggles.

    Those are my accomplishments as a musician.

    We had a piano growing up. My brother began taking lessons and then I told my mom I wanted to take lessons. Did for a couple years. Then we both quit. One of my biggest regrets. Still have that piano though.

    My mother was a concert pianist in her youth
    So we always had a piano as long as I can remember
    I learned to play, but never very well, and sure never practiced as much as would be needed to be very good

    When first went to college, it was at ACU and one of the girls dorms had a grand piano in the lobby
    There were a couple of guys who would sit there and play, girls swooned over that shit
    That always made me regret not having learned better

    I started seeing grey and white hairs before I was 30. I used tweezers to pick them individually out of my beard and head because I was so self-conscious about it.

    Now at age 32 I have pretty much a salt and pepper beard, with lots of greys.

    It's really emphasized when you get a haircut, and look down on your apron and see soooo much white and grey.

    Like color and colour, it's generally dependent on being American or British.
