Re: how old is every one?

T. C. here,
I'm 58 and I practice a lot. I have the time for myself since my boys are 23 and 21.
In the guitar stores in Pasadena and around L. A. the kids burn it up on guitars. I'm a rhythm guy myself. I play various genre's, a cornacopia of styles if you will. All songs taken off Chordie. I just started back in to scales, inspired by the kids who scream and soar.

The hot kids know all their Edward V. rifts etc. It's always been cut time at the guitar stores.
Music and surfing; (my other life long passion,) should bring the old and young together. I introduce myself to the younger kids and even sit out when they come into the custom sound proof room to jam so's I can learn. T.C. Canterbury Sierra Madre ca.

I don't remember if I ever posted to this thread or not, so if I didn't, let me just say I'm old enough to remember when "The Dead Sea" was just sick.

I'm heading into 61 in a few weeks and having more fun than ever. I picked up the guitar again after 35 years of trying to get on with life and thanks to chordie I have been able to play again.  all I can say is, thank you all for the inspiration.

Sounds like the story of my life, except I'm 63.  As long as we're still on the top side of the grass, who cares?

Re: how old is every one?

Will be 60 in January - sometimes, in the morning while shaving, I look in the mirror and wonder who that old person (swear word removed by mod) staring back at me is...

Re: how old is every one?

I turned 50 a couple of months ago and that co-incided with joining a band that was formed for a local series of charity gigs in Bedfordshire, UK.  I'd done some open mic and played drums when I was much younger but this was my first attempt at playing electric guitar in a band situation at the age of 50. We got through it - had a blast and have more gigs pencilled in. Moral ?  It's never too late.  regards to all.  David

Re: how old is every one?

I don't have an electric guitar, but I'm 16 and have been playing acoustic for two years. Also, I love soup. I like to make it, and I like to eat it! I've loved soup ever since we enacted the story "Stone Soup" in kindergarten. I thought, "Wow, making food out of rocks--that rocks!"

I remember the book "stone soup" when I was in kindergarten. That was 1965

Re: how old is every one?

Hello all,
            when I first replied to this thread on 19/8/2009, I was 59, turning 60 in a couple of weeks.
Now I am 62 and turning 63 in a couple of weeks. How time gets away on a fellow. Does that now make me a senior, senior member?
Still singing, strumming and loving every minute of the trip.

All the best

Re: how old is every one?

I thought I would jump in again.  I am 61.  Really enjoying my guitar and actually learning after all these years.

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.
