Hello everyone, I’ve been trying to play guitar on and off for years, and gaining vey little progress until I found Justins’ site. I have a luna acoustic and a Squire Strat’ with a positive grid amp.
I still class myself as a total beginner but a mixture of finding this site and being forced into redundancy / retirement means I will have a lot of time to practise so I know my guitar playing will improve.
Always happy to chat to people from other countries, and at this time of evening I should be found in front of the computer, trying to learn some blues and drinking red wine, life doesn’t get better.
Hello Chris, a very warm welcome to JustinGuitar and the community.
One person’s redundancy can be another person’s retirement.
Whatever life has thrown at you, and wherever you are, if you now have time to enjoy your musical hobbies then that at least is a good. Ask if you have any questions.
Hello Chris and welcome to our Community! I’m sure music will soothe that forced redundancy feeling! Take the chance to work on yourself and personal growth through learning to play. Enjoy your journey!
I took voluntary redundancy/early retirement nearly 3 years ago now.
I had great plans for my guitar playing but unfortunately due to a combination of real life and being badly organised, I’m probably about 2 years behind where I should be.
Don’t be like me. Put aside 20 minutes or so every day for meaningful practice. Don’t just noodle because you’ll probably end up playing stuff that sounds ok, and not stuff that challenges you and helps you improve.
Hello Chris, and a warm welcome to the community . Learning to play the guitar can bring so much joy into one’s life (at least, that’s the case for me ). Enjoy your guitar journey and keep us informed about your progress .
Hi Chris, welcome. It looks you’re enjoying your retirement. Start from level 0 of Justin Guitar lessons (even revisiting how to hold and tune a guitar may be worthy) to refresh, consolidate and improve whatever you had previously learnt. Set learning goals and work on them.
