Hi all, I’m Sarah from Eau Claire, WI. I’m 48 years old and have had a few starts and stops throughout the years trying to learn guitar but never stuck with it. Back in October I picked up the guitar again as I wanted to play and sing Happy Birthday to my granddaughter for her birthday in November. I was able to do it! Since then, I’ve been continuing to make my way through the beginner’s course and really having a lot of fun learning songs. Whenever I had attempted to learn guitar previously, I didn’t try to sing. Happy to be here and grateful to Justin for providing so many great lessons and this community.
Hi Sarah good to see you here. I bet that felt good playing and singing for your grand daughter ?
Great that you are sticking with the beginner’s course, plenty of help and advice available if you need it, from a warm supportive crowd of folks.
Welcome Sarah. What a joy it must have been to sing HB for your granddaughter and what a motivation to keep learning. So glad for you.
Hi Sarah and welcome. I echo the sentiments, it must have felt great to play happy birthday to your granddaughter.
Hi Toby, it sure was a great feeling doing that. Singing is something I never thought I would do.
Hi batwoman, thanks for the welcome
Welcome to the forum. Great to have you here. I’m an accidental singer. Never thought I would sing when I started playing guitar. My wife sung the first song I learned probably 50 times or so and I started singing along in the chorus without thinking and I’ve not stopped singing since. Such fun.
Welcome Sarah. I’m quite familiar with the start and stop experience. So glad you’ve already had a victory in your new learning path!
Great to see you here, Sarah, and yay on the HPB song for your granddaughter!
Woo Hoo! Awesome achievement, and it’s only up from there! Enjoy the lessons and the adventure!
Welcome to the Community, Sarah. Bravo on achieving your first goal. Keep on keeping on and you’ll keep on enjoying.
Hello Sarah, a very warm welcome to the community.
Music to my ears!
Thanks for the welcome. Accidental singer is a good way to put it. Glad you’re having fun too
