Hi all, really great to be here! This is my second attempt at learning guitar, gave up once before as a student because I just didn’t have the time to commit to it. Maybe it’s an early mid-life crisis this time, decided to give it another go and picked up an acoustic in the new year.
Pretty incredibly how much better my progress has been this time around, Justin’s structure of teaching is absolutely what works for me and I’m super pleased with how it’s been going. Planning on treating myself to an upgrade from my (totally servicable) Ibanez V50 once I finish grade 1, got my eye on a Pacifica already!
My music tastes are all over the place, my dad got me started on Dire Straits when I was wee but I roam all over the spectrum now, from Pearl Jam to Periphery, Fleetwood Mac to Incubus with some Foo Fighters and In Flames for good measure.
Looking forward to meeting folk on here, everyone seems really chilled out and on the same journey!
Welcome, Steve. Playing guitar is a great thing for a mid-life crisis.
I just started about a month ago and am a good 15 years past that crisis era, lol. I often think I should have started sooner, but then the internet isn’t what it is today. Great community here. That’s quite a range of music, but I’m all over the place, too, though my era starts way back in the 60s. Hope you’re enjoying yourself, it’s what counts.
Hi Steve, welcome. Good you restarted your guitar learning this time with Justin Guitar on your side. I have a Yamaha electric guitar that I bought with a starter kit. It is equivalent to a Pacifica 012. I like the sound and it’s the only electric guitar I need for now. You can use a multi-effect pedal and explore a wide range of tones. Some amplifiers have that functionality built-in.
