Hello from Farm Boy John

Just a line to introduce myself, started playing when I was 60 as I tried to play as a teenager which was not a success so promised to try again when I retired now I’m 76 might be the oldest dog in the kennel had some lesson early on and started with Justin awhile ago, I play all sorts pop classical but my love has always been the blues which I have been playing for awhile now and I’m looking forward to the Blues Immersion Course. I listen to a lot of old blues players such as Robert Johnson and Betty Smith, BB King ,Muddy Waters Etc. I am Left Handed but never found a problem with it or learning to play would be interesting to see if there are many more left handed guitarist in the group.
Best Wishes to all,
John Bedder.
Farm Boy.


Hi John,
Welcome here and I wish you a lot of fun :sunglasses:

Not even close :smile: For people who are young at heart, although even their passport seems to doubt this

But you are of a respectable age and how fantastic that you enjoy playing the guitar :sunglasses: :smiley:
