If I don't pick myself up by my own bootstraps, nobody else will.

I read this comment that applies here(modified somewhat for this application) , on a music forum I frequent. 

A 93 year old balalaika player was asked how much he practises....He replied "About 2 hours a day." He then was  asked "At your age, why do you practise so much?"  He replied..."I think Im making progress"  ;D

Also, playing/practising any musical instrument involves interaction between hearing, physical movement(fretting etc),emotional response(liking/disliking what you hear/create),memory functions among a bunch of other stuff that gives the brain a serious workout and helps with things like slowing/stopping dementia etc. The experts say, when you play a musical instrument, your brain neuron pathways light up like a Christmas tree. Keep at it Jeff. The progress is evident in the videos..
