View Full Version : Hi from an old guy...

I've just celebrated my 47 birthday and one of my bucket list items is to learn to play the guitar. So here I am...learning. My fingers hurt, especially my pinky but I really think that this is going to be so worth it! Anyhow, I think I'm progressing pretty well and I like these lessons so I reckon I'll stick around.

Come on, you guys aren't that old, and playing guitar will keep you young.
Let us know your progress, and be sure to let us know if you need any help.

You're not old! I wouldn't mind being 47 again but not without knowing what I know now! :) Seriously though, you can do it... it's a matter of having more desire and determination with which you will overcome any obstacles that stand in your way. Keep at it. Please let me know if I can be of any help to you. I'll be happy to help if I can.

I'll be 66 in a few months and I'm still learning..
There are a few other GTer's that have a few years on me..
It good therapy for sure.. I also do weights and a indoor stretching exercise routine..
Enjoy the show and keep on picking..

AND...it's great to know that perhaps I'm not really too old for this. I noticed this morning that some blisters are starting to form on my fingertips and perhaps they will turn to calouses(sp?) soon. I'm really enjoying this so far so I will definitely be around!
