Q: Do you think that it's possible for a 60 year old person with hardly any musical history to learn how to play classical guitar to a reasonable level before they reach 70 or 80 years old?

A: It will always depend on that 60 year old person and, if they have one, a very tiny bit on their teacher. Physically I would say replace 'classical guitar' with 'typing skills' and you get about the same results. If you can still feed yourself - you can play. Musically- if you can hear Music in your head- you should be able to play it on your guitar. I would not plan on a new career however. It is hard enough for a 20 year old to plan on a livelihood as a Musician. It takes at least 10 years to 'master' ANY instrument. If you are 60 you probably know that there are no Rules in this life, just Guidelines. One I like is, 'Follow your passion'. Wishing you the Best!
