    far being true.

    94 In short, the myth that popular music performance is within everyone's grasp seems to be far being true.
    1. Does this "grasp" mean "within reach" or "capability"?
    2. Isn't this "far from being true"? It seems to be a typo.

    Re: far being true.

    There is an error, either in the original or when you copied it. It should say "is far from ​being true."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: far being true.

    Your understanding of "grasp" is correct.
