Yes, although I didn't choose guitar. I think what is interesting is wind instruments because I'm curious to see the average experience in years and I think others might find it interesting, too.
Excellent point. I think, not only in saxophone playing but in any endeavor that requires the development of skill, there is a big difference between 10 years experience and 1 year of experience 10 times. Sometimes an individual will reach a plateau and never grow beyond it.Good poll, @randulo! I just want to note there are many members who've played for less years than I have but play much better than I do. Either through more diligent/regular practice, longer tutoring or both. Talent plays a part too .
My point is that the 'number of years' is interesting. The progress that members make during these years may differ widely
(Little tuition or practice)
