My name is Rob, and I live in a small town in Western Kentucky. I am now 56, almost 57 and I got my first guitar when I was 14. It was an old Checkmate nylon string that I found sitting out for the trash man to pick up. It looked like someone tried to put steel strings on it and pulled the bridge off it as there was a lot of glue as well as two screws holding the bridge on it. I did manage to learn a few chords on it G, C, D, A7, Em. I still have this old guitar today, just don't have the heart too get rid of it. A few years ago, I started having heart attacks and after that I got a settlement over a med that caused it. After a surgery, my wife got me a Fender Kingman that she had seen me looking at in a catalog. I am now trying to get better at playing and have just started to learn some barre chords and some simple finger picking. After getting the Kingman, I got the matching Kingman bass and love them both. My favorite music in mainly old rock, country, and country gospel. I just can't seem to really get good at playing guitar like I want too. I do end up in the hospital every few months for a few days with chest pains and to let you know how crazy I am, I do take my guitar with me when I go. Well I guess that is about all I can say for now. Yall take care.
