Topic: Where are you from? and more to the point.....

.... do you live near me!

I'm after a training partner and not sure of the best way to advertise for one, so this seems a good place to start ;-)

I consider myself a newbie.  Been learning for a few months when I get the time ( I know, almost 47 and I have a 4 year old and an 11 month old - it's not just guitar playing I left 'till late).

I know the main open chords and can strum between most without too many hiccups - maybe open strings at the end of a strum to get to the next chord.
Not great at getting to D and my F is a bit of a fudge.  Recently been trying to strengthen fingers to play some barre chords.

Now going back to a few basics of learning Am Pent scale ( from Justin's sight ) to try and get more mobility and finger stretching.

Anyway, looking for a like skilled player near me, so we can get together and practice/encourage maybe once a week or fortnightly.

Apologies to the moderators if this is not the correct place for such a question :-0

Oh, I'm in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex ( and male if that question needs to arise).
