I have played the guitar off and on (mostly off!) for 20+ years. Now that I’m retired, I have the time to pick it up again. Glad to find Justin’s website and this community. I’ve just started Justin’s lessons, done the first 3 or 4. I really like his approach so far.
Taking up guitar is the retirement activity for a lot of us on here. Welcome!

Hey Ralph, welcome to the community. I’ve got a brother in North Carolina, he lives somewhere near Raleigh. I certainly play the guitar even more now that I’m retired. Look forward to hearing more from you.
Hi Ralph, welcome to the community.

I wish you a lot of fun

I’m almost in the same boat except I have a few more years until retirement. In spite of, at the expense of a messy house I am logging lots of time and enjoying Justin’s app and teaching. Very effective even for a guy like me who is all thumbs!
Hello Ralph and welcome aboard.
Justin does have a great teaching style and because he seems like such a genuine guy, you just want to keep coming back for more.
I have had a couple other teachers. But none have come close to the way JS goes about it! Truly happy there. Welcome!
Hello Ralph - great to see you have your retirement plan in hand and are going to be having a lot of music in your future.
Guitar is a great way to spend time and make music.
Be prepared for some good times and some frustrations.
