Holy cow!!!! I'm listening to this right now and it's about to drive me nuts! I don't see how ya'll can stand to play it. But, that's just my opinion, nothing to be taken too seriously.

if you want to learn to play for the pleasure of making music, then it's never too late. I had an adult student start as a beginner at age 52, who ended up playing semi-professionally.
If you think it's too late for you, then it probably is! In other words, it all depends on your mental approach.

CAN'T STAND THE BACH CELLO SUITES? YOU MUST BE CRAZY!. Sorry, I will take a deep breath and calm down.........

I don't think a day goes by when I don't play at least one movement from one of the Suites. They are magnificent music, and full of expression. I really think they are worth persevering with, i.e. play them until you like them!
The Preludes YKB mentioned are good, also the Minuets and Gigue from no 1 are a good place to start.

Sorry Sue, it would drive me up the wall, across the ceiling, and down the other side if I even considered learning one of those! Sorry. I only play piano if I have to, I don't play it much for enjoyment anymore, I have too many other, more important things to do.

You know, I'd buy tickets to see that! (only joking!)

I guess I made a decision a long time ago that music was central in my life, and I am certainly obsessive about Bach; I shouldn't expect that from others.
You probably have a much more balanced, and healthy life than me. If it doesn't involve the tuba or its relatives I don't do it! Unless it's in transcription....

As for outside interests, well, I used to have time....
I have half a dozen pieces of Vietnamese silk, desperate to be turned into blouses, and some lovely cottons........sigh. I think if I didn't hate my particular sewing machine so much I might do more. But that's just an excuse of course.
