I’m 42 years old and have never played an instrument in my life - until 6 months ago! I don’t really know how to describe my epiphany and just how exciting the last 6 months has been for me in learning guitar and how this all came to be - I just realized out of nowhere one day that it would be a great outlet and that with my love for music, why not give it a try? I started October 1st and have practiced almost every day…I just love the JustinGuitar platform. I am currently on Module 10 (Grade 2) and taking my time, learning and loving every step of the way (and trying to remain “easy on myself” each day, despite my strong desire to get better…as it is very difficult!) And F chord is taking me quite a while to get but I’m staying patient! Lol
Even as I’ve begun on this exciting journey, I have continued to identify as a “non-singer,” UNTIL more recently in the last few weeks. I’m starting to understand the added excitement of singing along and have been attempting to learn some basic introductory singing techniques. To put it simply, I have a guitar problem (hahaha) -I’m having a blast and it’s been a phenomenal gift in my life to suddenly be on this wild journey.
Anyway, I’m a huge fan of JustinGuitar and I’ve been inspired by learning more about the Community and the opportunity to view/hear everyone’s videos and to submit some videos of my own in the near future and hear some feedback.
Glad to be here with you all!
