I sorta stumbled upon this web site when I was searching for some new Taylor Swift tabs/chords. This seem like a friendly forum, so I decided to join after being a lurker for the past few days ...LOL. :-)
I'm from Chicago, IL and started learning how to play the guitar way back in the early 1970s when I was in high school. Yikes, that make me feel old ...LOL ...since I'm now in my early 50's. I'm not a pro, I just play the guitar as hobby for my own enjoyment. I'm pretty much self-taught, but I did take a couple of basic lessons many years ago. However for the past 10 years or so, work and other hobbies have taken up most of my time, so I just recently started playing again. Although I've been playing the guitar for awhile now, I still have lots to learn!
My first guitar was an old classical that was given to me by my brother, however that was a real pain to play. So, I saved up and bought a 12-string acoustic (Cortez) a year later. I still have that old Cortez, but I prefer my Ovation Elite L718 acoustic/electric which I bought new back in 1994 (I think).
