Hello, J.J. here in beautiful Larkspur California. I am 49 years old and have been learning guitar with the Justin App since March of this year. I really am enjoying the guitar experience. I play about 2 hours a day and have quickly progressed to Grade 3 Module 19 in the Justin App.
I enjoy playing lots of songs from difference genres and decades. It is interesting to me how different it can be to enjoy playing a particular song on guitar versus listening to that same song as a fan. Some songs that I love to listen to, don’t get me as excited to play. Other songs that are awesome to play hadn’t previously caught my interest listening to them. Some of my favorite artists to play on guitar so far include:
- Neil Young
- Pearl Jam
- Jason Isbell
- The Beatles
- Tom Petty
- Johnny Cash
I started on a Jasmine accoustic guitar but have added a Squire Strat and an Epiphone Les Paul. I love playing all three. Photos are below. I am excited to continue to progress as a guitar player and to get to know this community better.

Welcome to the Community JJ. I know exactly what you mean, certainly learning new songs you would not normally listen to, opens up a much bigger spectrum of audio pleasure.
Welcome to the forum.
You’ve really made great progress in just a few months. 2 hours a day is very impressive!
You have a very nice collection of beautiful guitars, it must be a lot of fun to play them.
Keep up the great work, and have lots of fun and success on your musical journey
Cheers from Germany
Welcome aboard, JJ!
You got a nice little collection of guitars already! Also kudos for the rapid progress and time spent learning so far, wish I could spent 2 hours per day as well.
Wish you loads more hours of fun on the guitar journey!
Cheers - Lisa
