Hey Guitar players,

I'm Keith - when the pandemic first started, I resolved to finish the undergraduate degree I abandoned 35 years ago. I wrapped that up in December and then got *really* crazy I said "I have always wanted to learn how to play the guitar."

So, I did some research, bought my first guitar, some useful accesories, and joined guitartricks. As far as aspirations go, I really just want to entertain myself, develop a deeper appreciation for music, and learn some of my favorites. If I can make it through "Hot Rod Lincoln" (at any speed) before I retire, I'll consider it all a smashing success :)

Good call, DraconusJLM. He/she will be gone soon.
