Find others who are interested
For all but the few, music-making is a social activity. Being a soloist is tough.
I took up guitar because a school-friend invited me to his house and demonstrated his playing ability.
Each week we learned a new simple piece (this was years ago and we emulated the Shadows) and I had to work ten times as hard as he did but the desire not to look stupid made me do it. Later we formed a band.
How to find like minded people
Where I live there is a local Meetup group. They get together weekly and play some well-known songs - this is called 'jamming'. Join such a group if it exists. In my experience most amateur musicians are friendly and won't expect expertise from you immediately and will be willing to teach bits and pieces (though don't expect an hour-long tutoring session)
If you look up the life-stories of non-classical musicians you will find that most of them are self-taught. Very often they went to local gigs and, if the artist was friendly they might be willing to demonstrate a particular lick if you go to see them backstage. Ask for their autograph and then for a demo. They may refuse but if they say no it's not a personal rejection - they may just be tired.
