Hi there everyone! I've decided to try (again) to learn to play the guitar. I've taken my old, long-neglected, guitar out of the shed, had it restrung, and signed up for a year's subscription to Guitar Tricks.

My guitar is a nylon-string acoustic Kiso Suzuki G-100. I've had it since I was 8 years old (40 years ago!) It hasn't been well treated over the years but it still looks and sounds good!

I've been really enjoying Lisa's Absolute Beginners lessons. I really wanted to start from scratch and build up from a solid foundation. My "project" is to follow the courses systematically and see what happens!

Reporting back after the first 4 weeks.

It's going well for me so far. It's day 28 and I haven't missed a day so far. I've been working my way through the guitar fundamentals course and I think I'm really building a solid foundation. Lisa's a really good teacher.

Of course I'm still clumsy and often hit the wrong string but gradually I think I am gaining a "feel" for the guitar.
