Hey all, I’m Tom. I’m 34 and have just recently acted on my urge to learn guitar again. I tried when I was in my early 20s, but didn’t find my teacher to be particularly helpful and life pretty much got in the way of everything after. I have a young Son and another on the way, so it’s a challenge trying to balance everything at the moment but I really want to learn properly this time.
I found out about Justin Guitar through some YouTube reviews of various learning platforms and thought it looked great! I am now at the end of beginner grade 1 and just working on a few things before I move on.
Welcome to the group Tom.
Hi Tom ,
Welcome and i wish you a lot of fun
And quickly practice some lullabies, so you have a nice excuse to fill the nights you sit awake by your new born with playing the guitar
Welcome to the community
Your story will sound familar to a lot in the community, did a bit when younger before real life took over and came back to it later in life. Your gap seems like 10-15 years unlike mine which was more than 50 years before I found time.
Glad you are enjoying it now.
Haha, yes that sounds like a good idea!
Thanks Michael! It really is a great thing to do at any age
Hi Tom, welcome good luck with your journey and the guitar
Welcome Tom, good luck this time round.
Hello Tom and welcome to our community.
Hopefully the guitar will help you keep your sanity. Two young ones, been there, done that. Have fun.
Hey Tom. Welcome to the community and congratulations on the soon coming new baby. Look forward to hearing more from you.
Welcome Tom, so nice to have you here .
Learning to play the guitar with young kids will be a challenge, for sure. But maybe you can find a way to combine being a das and playing the guitar. @roger_holland Rogiers tip with the lullabies might be just the beginning .
Welcome, Tom. I’m in the same spot you are in terms of guitar, not toddlers. I’m working on my consolidation of Grade 1 now. Hopefully, I can graduate in another 2=3 weeks. I hope you can stick with, wish I tried to learn in my 30s!
Hi Tom, welcome to the community.
Welcome Tom! All the best with your journey
Thank you, I’m looking forward to the challenge of all 3!
Thanks Nicole, my 2 year old has already tried strumming when I’ve been playing so maybe I need to get a guitar in his hands soon!
