Ha! Yes...being of that age group too, I spent hours experimenting with different pencils, leads, paper, pens, ink, erasers, etc. etc. (....and, I still do...notation software is still a pale imitation of what's possible with pencil/paper for getting what's out of your brain onto a score for initial musical thoughts) Having bought and used Sibelius, Finale, and now finally sticking to Dorico....I'm glad to have all the past experiences from the viewpoint of being both a player and a composer/arranger. It's a great tool! A great stress-reliever...., and does keep the brain fresh. But, in a great way. I find it much more intuitive and natural to use instead of the other notation programs at my point in life/career. And I haven't even scratched the surface of what's available as far as the DAW aspects of Dorico are yet. Keeps life interesting!
