Topic: Just Found Ya
Just discovered this site today. I played guitar from the time I was 12 til I was in my 30's. I kinda drifted away for a couple of decades. My life changed this winter when my wife had a massive stroke and died. As I have tried to restart my life I notice a Fender Acoustic on Amazon and began trying to make myself play again. I was able to do something after a bit and eventually my fingers toughened and I remembered some of the songs I once knew. I had my right wrist rebuilt this Summer so I had a lot of time on my hands. My youngest found a decent used electric S101 Standard with a Roland amplifier. I couldn't play it for several weeks because of my surgery but before I had enough wrist to strum I ran across a Fender Starcaster electric at a Flea Market that looked like it needed me. I was able to make the necessary repairs and now have enough strength in my wrist to play and am using it as therapy. I really enjoy the song postings because even the simplest ones can put someone like me back on the track to remembering many of the songs I once knew.
