comment Getting my Daughter Started in Music
You've seen the suzuki method, right? It starts them in preschool. A core tenet of the method is that learning from the environment at that age is natural.

comment Getting my Daughter Started in Music
Personally I waited until my kids were older as I didn't want to push them at that age, as you say, but there do seem to be a large number of children brought up playing violin or piano from kindergarten age - so it is obvious that preschoolers can handle it.

comment Getting my Daughter Started in Music
I played violin for 8 years - initially liked it, went through a phase of hating it (luckily my parents 'forced' me to continue) then liked it a bit more. Sure, I then dropped it for guitar when I was 16, but I think your point is very valid.

comment Self learning and tips for a middle aged parent
This isn't really an answerable question. Everyone is different. What I would recommend is reading a lot of the questions here on guitar, but also on the entire learning tag and see if they help. Then when you have specific issues, those would likely make questions we can answer helpfully.

comment Guitar chords high on the neck
I often play chords up at the 18th fret on an electric, and even 15th fret on acoustic guitars. I think 5th fret is fairly low :-)
