At 48 I've finally decided to take up an old hobby. At 14 I learned a little quitar. Only had a teacher for a few sessions. Took yo the book I had afterwards. As a lefty I was advised to play right handed. But never felt comfy so I relearned left handed. Only made it to decently playing a couple of simple songs. Then I got a drivers listened at 15. Need I say more?? Actually I wanted to go back to it latter but my acoustic had been stolen.

Last week I ordered the lessons. Should be here by Friday. In the mean time I found the first two sessions on YouTube and since Sunday I've went through the finger exercises. I remember very few things. But my fingers are adapting better than expected. And reading tabs seems to come faster than the first time I learned. Lead guitarist have always appealed to me. Blues is a favorite. My only goal is to learn enough to sit on my porch and play blues...on a stratocastor...for all my neighbors! Ha ha.

I've danced West Coast swing and some ballroom the past few years. Guitar helped me in dance with knowledge of the beat and rhythm. Now my practice philology will hopefully help with guitar.

Looking forward to this new hobby.

Thanks everyone.
I had no idea everyone met. If it's in Nashville I'm only 4 hours from there. I live near Tupelo, MS.

-matonanjin I appreciate it. I do 15 minute practices with a timer of actual playing. Then repeat as often as I can through the day. Minimum of 30 minutes. Helps with frustration...yet I already know, just as dance, my first accomplishment will likely be cursing in tune!
