Hello! (new guy)

New guy here. My name is Randall (friends call me Randy) I’ve been dabbling in guitar for some time now…with little success. My fault, I’ve lacked the “stick-to-itness”. Now that I’m retired I’m all in and focused on learning. My goal is to one day play for some live audiences!

I love this site for the ability to break down everything to the basic level. Not to mention a structured plan to progress.

I practice every day for about an hour+ (I’m at the beginner level)

Anyway, sorry for the long 'winded. Thanks to Justin for creating a site for all us music lovers.



Hey Welcome Randy!

I hope you are playing one of these…


Nice! Can’t say Im playing that beauty. Does a Les Paul count?

Welcome Randy. Are you a biker with the name MotoGuzzi?

Yes I am! Current bike is a 2023 MotoGuzzi 850 special (purchased this past fall)

Nice. It’s been a few years since I was last on a bike. I keep thinking about getting another but it always seems to be raining in the UK and then it’s no fun.

Or one of these?


Welcome Randy! @MotoGuzzi

Hi Randy, welcome to the community. Have fun playing guitar every day in retirement.

Yeah, the rain can be a downer. Funny though, I follow a few bike guys on YouTube from the UK. I’m in Canada so no riding for me these days…
(Thx for the welcome!)
