Hi, I’m Cammy a long in the tooth beginner to guitar.
I’ve been playing harmonica and singing jump blues and swing for many years.
Picked up a harmonica aged 30 and couldn’t put it back down again !
Played in and started many bands, gigged a lot.
But, got a bit disillusioned with running a band, booking gigs etc, so quit 7 years ago
Dabbled on the piano for a few years, which I enjoyed, but it just not portable enough
So, decided to treat myself for my 60th birthday and get a guitar.
Its great ! I’ve got the same feeling about it that the harmonica gave me. I just can’t seem to put it down
Looking forward to my new musical journey.
All the best, and keep playing
Hey Cammy, welcome to the community. I started playing guitar at the age of 53 over 10 years ago and just loving what it’s brought into my life. Look forward to hearing more from you.
You have such a rich musical history I can’t wait to see where the guitar takes you on your journey! All the best and welcome to the community!! <3
Welcome and i wish you a lot of fun
Hello Cammy, greetings and welcome to the community. You have a great background steeped in music. Good on you for seeing a new opportunity in guitar. There’s many mature folks doing the same: Older guitar students - can 'old dogs' learn new tricks?
If you have questions just ask.

Welcome to the community, its never too old to start. Good luck.
Hello Cammy and welcome.
Sounds like you have a great musical background. You’ll have to get your harmonica going with your guitar, once you feel confident enough.
Thanks all for the welcome.
Will be trying a rack for the harmonica soon
Hello and welcome Cammy, you’ve a great musical background. Enjoy your guitar journey - needs to be some Neil Young in your future playlist - just so you can incorporate the harmonica.
Welcome to the Community, Cammy. I hope at some point we’ll hear you playing your harp too
