    I'm currently trying to teach myself keyboard and guitar, (I've had previous keyboard education in my early school days but I've pretty much forgotten the intricate details and been left with subpar knowleadge).

    Peace to all.

    I was self taught on everything, production, engineering, and mastering. Then breezed thru a few courses for certificates.
    Two things that annoy me are people who are positive out of ignorance, and people who are negative out of bitterness. People who are neither usually get along with me and agree with most of what I say. People who are one of the 2 think I'm the other.

    Self taught myself on guitar, started about 5 years ago. Learned by ear, only book I bought was when I first started.. didn't need any since. Learned scales etc all by myself.. Well maybe a little help from older folks.. but mostly by ear...

    The only thing that wasnt self taught in making music was playing the guitar. My parents made me take lessons when I was 12. Then i quit after a year. Started a band, then our band fell apart. Then after that I really never touch the guitar. Maybe once in a while I did. Now I'm old, so decided to learn how to play the keyboard. Using most of what I've learn from scales and chords from guitar playing helps with learning with the keyboard

    I've been big on teaching myself new skills, whenever I see something that I think I will find useful, I give it a go. Especially true over the last few years, perhaps approaching things with a more mature attitude has really helped me in getting closer to both my musical and career goals (both of which are built on self taught skills).

    Some people find it extremely difficult to motivate themselves to learn something, and would rather sit and watch TV or take part in some other passive entertainment, but personally that sort of thing makes my brain cringe, and I'd much rather take another step towards where I want to be (even if it IS only a baby step!).
