    David Duchovny is "never" going to be a great guitar player

    The 61-year-old star started playing the guitar a decade ago and despite having a long-standing love of music, he admits there are some limitations to his talent.


    David - whose new album is called 'Gestureland' - shared: "I only started playing guitar about 10 years ago.

    "I was a music fan, of course, and listened a lot, but like most people, I never thought that this lifetime was going to be one in which I played or wrote any music. I didn't get it it early: kids can pick it up quickly, but as a 50-year-old, it's tough.

    "I'm not a good player. I'm never going to be a good player."

    Despite this, David remains surprised by his own musical talents and how he's managed to develop them over the years.

    He told the Guardian newspaper: "I mean, I'm good enough to throw chords together! I can make a lot of different sounds and I can write songs off of sounds. I learned I could hear melodies, and that was a big surprise to me."

    David is best known for starring in 'The X-Files', but he didn't act at all between 2017 and 2020.

    And he's admitted to focusing his attention on music because he wasn't being offered any interesting roles.

    He said: "The truth is that I wasn't seeing stuff that I was desperate to do. And I didn't have to do it.

    "I was trying to develop a couple of shows in that time that got far but not far enough; I hitched my wagon to a couple of non-starters. I didn't line up with the marketplace for those three years, and that was fine, because I was trying to take a more hands-on approach than just attaching myself as an actor to something. And it's just ... it's f****** hard. It's a nightmare. But it's worthwhile."
