Gary from Canada

Hello JustinGuitar fanatics, I’m Gary from Canada.

I’m in my sixth decade on this little rock hurtling through space, so I guess I’m one of the old dogs learning new tricks here. Actually, I should say “relearning” because I actually played a little rhythm and bass back in my “formative” years - nothing structured and no lessons - just learning from my buds. When the pandemic hit, I needed another hobby and picked up an old guitar from the basement. Have now gotten a sweet hollowbody electric Godin 5th Avenue.

I’ve been using Justin’s course for a year now, and am pumped with the progress I’ve made and am super enjoying it. I’m into classic rock, blues, country blues, blues/rock and - well, you get the picture.

Happy to be here.


Welcome Gary to the community.

There are plenty people here, you started later in life on the guitar journey. Enjoy the ride :grinning:

Hey Gary! Welcome to the forum, that Godin looks sweet!

Welcome to the fanatics club Gary.
Another Godin fan here although of the Seagull acoustic type.
I can brag that my guitar was made within a hundred miles
from where I live.
Also an old timer into the classic rock/folk so we have that in common too.
Looking forward to hearing more from you.
Where in Canada you hangin your hat these days ?


Hey Gary
I’m new today here, but welcome. I love playing / attempting to play the blues and bits and pieces of folk and country. I’m also in my 50’s and still trying - made some good progress over the last few years and hope to continue.

Good luck Gary and see you around.

All my exes live in Texas, that’s why I hang my hat in Winnipeg (apologies to George Strait). You’re in la belle provence? I love visiting Montreal and Quebec City.

Quebec city is close but just across the border in Maine.
