I’m igor, 53 y Belgian,
I recently moved to Hungary with my wife, dogs and cat.
I drive a truck all around Europe for 3 weeks and then I am one week at home.
Playing guitar was something I always wanted to learn, but never found the patience to endure, not being musical at all, didn’t help either, I guess.
Now that I am in my wiser years [ my wife would disagree ], it is time to finally learn how to play.
And with enough spare time on the job, there’s no reason why not filling that time learning something new.
So I was looking for an online course, and stumbled on a Dutch speaking course, witch had good reviews.
I paid for it and started, that’s now 4 weeks ago.
Each week I get a lesson, and then I practice on that lesson for a week, reviewing what I learned the previous week, and it works.
I practice every day, an average of 45 minutes and in the weekend 2times a day, the teacher said to practice at least 15 minutes, but I was enjoying it so much, that I loose track of time.
I started reading on a Dutch guitar forum, and somebody mentioned he was learning with Justin.
So I went and have a look at the website, looking at the lessons, I found that Justin’s way of teaching, spoke more to me, but more importantly the structured practice, was the thing i missed.
I’m going to continue with both courses , but my focus will be with Justin’s teachings .
I’m starting out on a acoustic guitar, a Fender cd 60 v3, which is more practical in my truck and cheaper. In Hungary I’m going to practice on my wife’s classical guitar, so I don’t have to bring my guitar with me, when I fly home.
Eventually I’m planning to move on to electric guitar.
