My Brother had to quit piano when he got in his late 50s, about 10 years ago. His hands couldn't handle the stress any more. He played classical & had a weekly gig playing for the church. Heavy hand & had weights on the keys to increase resistance.

Add in arthritis & he's pretty messed up. Had to have surgery on the left thumb several years ago. He had just started to mess around with a country boogie band when his hands went south.

Upside is he walked away without regrets, hasn't missed it & had an ironclad reason to give up the church gig.

DON'T let that happen to you. ;)

They make that look so easy! I never could quite get the hang of keyboard (string player), but not for lack of interest.

I would be content with slow easy, but my left hand has zero musical talent. When I was trying, I could get a somewhat passable tune from the right hand, but left, not so much. Can't even handle three not chords.
