Hello from Lisa in Arizona

Hello everyone,
My name is Lisa and I am learning guitar at 56. bought a fender strat as my first electric and enjoying the process. I did try a few years ago with an acoustic but the blisters made me stop and the break was enough to de-motivate me. I’ve been playing for 1 month with the electric and am over the blisters. I love the app and just started module 2.


Welcome aboard, Lisa! :slight_smile:

Glad you gave guitar another try and joined us. Wish you loads of fun on the journey and a steep learning curve. :smiley:

Cheers - Lisa

Great stuff Lisa, welcome to the community. I started in my mid 50s and 10 years on it’s just the best thing when you stick it out and become confident.

Hello Lisa and welcome to our community. :slight_smile:

We’ve all battled the sore fingers but it’s nice to be told about them by a pro, otherwise you just think it is something that will always happen when you play guitar.

Hi Lisa, welcome to the community forum. Have fun now that you have earned your calluses. If you still have your acoustic you might want to give it another try, now that you have calluses. You might find it more enjoyable. Have fun learning new songs in Grade 2, which has a lot more songs for electric guitar, that sound good on a Strat.

Yes, I do have it and plan on going back to it once I get my chords and strumming. I love the sound of acoustic but did buy a nice “I’ll never need another” electric fender that fits me better because I am small.
