comment What instrument can an old guy learn if the main goal is to write music
(Edited my answer to make "it" clearer.) Well think about it - by learning an instrument, you can improvise along with the song, playing whatever happens to flow from your fingers. You can often "discover" new ideas for your song this way (either by accident or by accessing ones lying dormant in your subconscious) that you otherwise wouldn't have thought of. How would you replicate such a thing in Sibelius with a static music sheet staring you in the face at all times? Unless you hear the music in your head already, you're feeling in the dark.
comment What factors affect a guitar's ability to sustain a note?
Feedback-induced note longevity. :)
