I started to learn to play about 2 years ago. My daughter's interest in it got me thinking that maybe it's time for me to get off my rump and just do it. I'm 51 and like some of the others my fingers ain't as nimble as I'd like. Some of the Blues Chords progressions that my teacher has shown me are hard as hell, but, hey, this is for my own pleasure. I have a great teacher, he suits me perfectly. A lot of times our lessons are more like "therapy" than lessons. Especially if I'm feeling in a funk or ticked off.
I have always loved acoustic guitar and it's been a blast to finally be able to realize that, "Yeah, I can do this." <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_cool.gif" border=0 alt="Cool">
The big secret for anybody, and this is the philosophy of my teacher. Is that it makes a big difference in having the right teacher for you. His own website makes that point very clearly. Especially at our age(s). <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_biggrin.gif" border=0 alt="Very Happy"> <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_lol.gif" border=0 alt="Laughing"> I'll be doing this for the rest of my life! <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_cool.gif" border=0 alt="Cool">
