I am 70 years old, and I am very thankful that my fingers are still very nimble for my age. My guitar was kept in the closet for 20 years or so, then when I got my computer, I started looking for beautiful classic country midi files to listen too. I am a flat picker. I found several sites with great midi guitar files.....one of them is Dick Anderson's country guitar files and another is Harry Todd's; the gitpicker's url. I have learned more in playing my guitar by listening, playing and singing along with their great guitar music, than I would have ever imagined. I practice a minimum of 3-4 hours every day, and not to brag, but I keep getting better and better. I never thought I would be playing such tunes as white Cliffs Of Dover, For The Good Times, By The Time I get To Phonix, etc. I get the chords from Chordie that the guitar music is in, and as the tune/song is playing, I play right along. I pretty well know the scales, and I find that I can play proficently by playing within the chords, moving from one chord to the other, just as the guitarists are doing. Lots and lots of daily practice and correct timing is the key to becoming an accomplished guitarit.
