Hello from Marc I'm an older American in London learning to make music

American expat living in London, not far from Abbey Road! I’m a software engineer by trade (40 years) but an artist in my heart. :slight_smile:

A long time Justin student and fan, I enjoy playing guitar, singing, and writing.

I just posted my first recording here:

My current goals are:

  1. play with other people
  2. master a small repetoire (e.g. 3-5 songs)
  3. perform a song or two live at an open mic in London

Welcome to the firum Marc.


Welcome Marc. Goals look good and London should be a good place to find others to play with.


Hey Marc, welcome to the community. There are a few software developers on the forums, your blog was an interesting / good read, I have a similar email style to you. I hope Walking in Memphis is one of your planned repertoire songs. Playing guitar I find is a great way to unwind from the intensity of building apps. Look forward to hearing more from you.


Welcome to the community Marc


I LOVE Walking in Memphis!

I’m sure you’ll achieve your goals.


Hey there, thanks for introducing yourself here. Welcome to the Community, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything! Cheers.


Welcome to the community Marc. It sounds like you are well on your way towards accomplishing your goals. Justin Guitar Community is a fantastic option for learning and networking with peers to get feedback and tips. I will give acoustic heroes a listen. Thanks for sharing. I post my music here too every now and then and get great feedback to improve. Have a great day



Hi Marc, a very warm welcome to the JG community.
Great goals and I wish you all the luck and all the success in reaching them.
What a great version of Heroes too.
