Hi all. So I took lessons for 2 years when I was eleven years old. And my guitar playing career peaked at 13 yrs old when I played at Bobby H’s Bar Mitzvah -haha. (I think we played Day Tripper.) After that I was stuck in the longest rut - maybe 40 years! I played only rhythm guitar and didn’t learn many new songs and finally stopped playing altogether. Then about 6 years ago I got together with some friends to jam - 3 guitars, a bass player and a great vocalist. My interest was rekindled and now I’m loving it.
I’ve made it through about half of Justin’s theory course. As you all know, this website is just an amazing resource. I actually have a great teacher who I see once a month here in Boston (he’s a Berklee grad) but Justin’s courses are the core of my learning.
I’m taking a crack at finger-picking now and hope to post a video on AVOYP soon.
It’s really inspiring to see people of all ages from all over the world on this community. Rock on my brotha’s and sista’s!
Hi Mike, welcome, I joined about a week ago. Seems to be a great place. I bought my first guitar at the end of November though I’ve wanted to learn 50 years ago, it just never happened. Seems like a great community. BTW, I’m originally from Worcester. Love Boston, haven’t been there or Boston since 2016.
