Sing it brother.  When you're 10 you have less to give up.  When you 
have a family, the sacrifice would have to be as much theirs as yours, 
and that's something I'm not willing to ask of my 2 year old and my 4 
year old.  I know to "get good", will require a serious time committment 
that I cant provide right now.  I'm willing to give up TV and other 
hobbies, but even that's not enough.  Everyone I know personally who is 
"good" at any instrument played before they had the kind of 
responsibility that comes with maturity.
