Hey all, I am Greg from Atlanta. I’ve been trying to teach myself guitar on and off for quite a while, but I feel I’ve really been sticking with it and making good progress the last year or so. I’ve used Justin Guitar as my main resource - I think I started watching the lessons back in 2012 or so. I even have one of the old physical beginner books sitting around somewhere!
I took piano lessons from about 10 through leaving for college and still try to keep up with that. I also played trumpet and spent some time in chorus as well.
I really enjoy guitar for playing and singing along, and I find myself wanting to learn songs from artists like Hozier and Matt Maeson.
I’m somewhere in the middle of grade 3 right now, and I feel like I’m hitting a stride with finally being able to learn a good amount of songs that I’m interested in
Hoping to get to talk to folks about guitar, performing, and just enjoying music!
That was a nice introduction Greg and welcome. Certainly seems like you have a strong musical background and you will find all the resources you need to succeed here.
Enjoy the journey!
