    I for one don't believe that there is one. The playing field is pretty level as to attitude and demeanor no matter what age and we all learn from each other.

    We all came here for the same reasons and that is why ST comes off as a loose yet constructively bonded family type of hell.:D The old hold the sage advise..."you turned that way too far" and the young have the "hey, what if" that the old had back in the day (still do) and it goes on, and on...:cool:

    If you young ones ever doubt the elders, I have "One Word" for you!:D

    I'm 28, I often post on here asking your guys' advice because I know you are smarter and have more experience on the topic

    Lets face it.. the majority on this forum have one foot in the grave.. some just levitating above it.. Playing a Strat is the last grasp at a long past youth. History! Pass the biscuits Vicar.. :whistling::D

    I used to think of myself as young, but I just turned 38 and it's getting harder to make that argument. I've settled on telling myself I'm on the young side of old :D

    I feel like I'm right in the middle of said gap--some days I feel/act young and spry and others I'm just another angry old bastard :p

    Guitar transcends age differences. The young look to the elder for experience and the elder looks to the young to keep the tradition alive.

    My grandfather played guitar and banjo. My mother played guitar. I play guitar, used to play bass and have my grandfather's banjo. I have given guitars and ukes to my kids and leave mine lying around and don't mind them picking them up.

    So far, out of the four, none have taken to it, except for very brief periods. But they're still young so I have time. One plays baritone horn in the school band and another just started, hasn't been assigned an instrument yet. I don't care what instrument they play. I just want them to learn to love to play. Or at the very least, appreciate it.

    I learn different things from different people. Seldom is their age of any consequence to their wisdom.
