Hello From A New Member!

Hey guys and gals!

I just wanted to take a minute and introduce myself. I’m Tony from GA. and will be 55 yrs. of age on the 22nd of this month. I got an acoustic guitar one Christmas waaaay back when I was just a young kid. I loved it but honestly I didn’t know what I was doing and learning resources were limited back then so I never accomplished much with it.

Fast forward to the present. I never lost my desire to learn the guitar and after many decades I our took the plunge and bought ab electric guitar, a Strat-A-Like if you will. After bouncing around from various videos and books I finally discovered what I’ve been searching for in Justin and his awesome lessons! I’ve made my way through Module 0 and have just started to learn the D chord in the 1st lesson in Module I. I really like Justin’s teaching methods and that it is structured and something important to me, the continuity in that he’s the instructor vs.bouncing around from different people.

I’m excited about my journey to learn the guitar. I’m a disabled widower who lost my wife 5 years ago suddenly and unexpectedly at the young age of 40. Now I have something positive to look forward to each day that I truly enjoy!

Thanks Justin and thanks to all!



welcome :slight_smile:


Where is GA? Gabon?



Thanks Keith!

My bad…I forgot we’re international here! :blush: I’m in the US, the state of Georgia.

Best Wishes,




Hi Tony … Welcome to the community.

Enjoy :smiley:
