Thank you Steve and slwiegel for your encouragement. I fit into that slot very easily...
I am 55 and just started session 1. My fingers hurt, and I seriously struggle with C and C7 chords.. But after a day, the fingers hurt less and not as exasperated with the chords.
My reasoning for learning guitar is:
1. Cheaper than a Harley.
2. Time to take playing air guitar to something more concrete.
3. At work I listen to Pandora and gravitated towards blues, and rockabilly. I want to play Johnny B Goode one day in front of others and blow them away!
4. I find happiness in this... we all need to be happy about something otherwise life can drag you down.
5. Watching Steve on my 55" wide screen is much more enjoyable than the news or the stuff on TV today. (don't worry I wont suddenly show up)
I'm currently using my daughters acoustic guitar until I buy my semi-hollow body rockabilly guitar later next week. My aunt gave me a guitar some 40 years ago and I couldn't play this thing to save me. Failed the class. But I've had it kicking around the house all these years. Come to find out it is a steel slide guitar built in the 30's and I should have taken much better care of it! So I've come full circle and after much research and speaking with many other players, I am glad I chose this course... Looking forward to hearing of your trails and successes...
