Re: how old is every one?

Turned 55 this past November, and have been playing guitar for about 45 years. Before the children were grown, there were long spells where the case never opened. Now that they're grown up and no longer home on the payroll, there's lots of time to enjoy.

Re: how old is every one?

52,...been playing since I was 17, my first guitar was a Fender Stratocaster, acoustic's are a pain in the butt. I encourage all new players to get an electric guitar first, cause most of the music you love is electric, and with all the cool stuff on the market, you can get a great sound the will inspire you to greatness. Make your next guitar an acoustic.


I love the blues, and 70's rock, and can dig the new stuff. Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page being my top three, I also enjoy Richie Blackmore, Rory Gallagher, and Santana (got my picture with him).

Re: how old is every one?

i'm 61, bought my first guitar at 14, began learning to play it at around 18 ( to impress the girls)

i believe that everyone should buy a rubbish acoustic first, cos if you can play that, expensive (easy to play) electrics will be even easier as your fingers will be stronger and more able to reach those hard to play chords, like B's and Dbm6

Re: how old is every one?

Hi, I am new here.  My name is rob, but y'all just might call me grandpas.  I am 56.  Had an old warn out guitar since I was 14.  Never did get good playing.  Only knew C, G, and D.  Last year had heart surgery, when I got home from the hospital, my wife got me a Fender Kingman. Trying to learn to play now.  Just learned how to play a few barre chords.  Chordie is helping me to learn a lot of new stuff.  Thanks for being here for us old coots.

Re: how old is every one?

I hit 60 in January. Started playing at 12 or 13. When I was 12 the Beatles were an exciting new group and many things were changing. Sometime in the 80s my guitar started spending more time in the closet than not as I worked a lot of overtime and my kids were growing up. I also suspect the Disco era had something to do with it. Bought a new one this spring (and have since bought two more). As my surgically rebuilt hand recovers I expect to spend more and more time with it. This site is showing me some of the little pieces of songs that I once knew.

Re: how old is every one?

Welcome to all you newer folks.  I think most of us started early in life and then put the guitar away for lots of years before coming back to it again.  For those just starting, hang in there and practice and play every day.  You will get better with time.

Re: how old is every one?

I'm pushing 60. Been playing all my life on and off the road. I still play with two working bands and some recording. See the thing is when your brain gets to this point and you know thousands of songs you start to forget little thing. Like words or a simple cord change. That's what got me to this here site. So hello to some more online folks. peace

Re: how old is every one?

Thanx Metalizer. When I was 7 yrs young I lived on the west side of Chicago. Got hooked on music by sitting out side blues clubs. By the time I was 10 I knew a lot of them old folks by name. At 14 I was jamming with the likes of sunnyland slim, Buddy guy, john lee hooker, and on and on. Sure had a huge impact on what my life would become. I've played in quite a few blues bands with some very good players. I got to travel a lot with a rock band that was trying to (make it). After I didn't make it I played with a cover band to pay bills. Now I play with a outlaw type country band and an original boogie blues band. Mostly now I just have a real good time.  I'm not bragging or anything just been very lucky to get to do what I love and make a humble living out of it.
Oh, I did get to live in Jamaica for a year playing with a reggae band but that's a whole other story. If you keep your expectations under control and you don't mind putting in a lot of time and soul in it anyone can do it. But the pay off is not monetary. Well I see I'm rambling again so I will chat at ya all later.
ps  didn't mean to hijact this thead. peace, Dave.

Re: how old is every one?

Welcome Dave,

It is nice to hear about people's musical experiences so don't apologise, but if you really want to have a long, serious ramble nip down to the 'Chat section' where you can ramble to your heart's content smile.....
