Old Dog Brett - from Maine, USA, learning new tricks

Hello from Downeast Maine where the water is cold and the beach is, in large part, just one big rock. I’ve been told my whole life that I can’t play an instrument or sing. Well, I am sure I can’t sing. But I have a beautiful new strat and I’ve been practicing on FP for 160 continuous days today. I’m still a beginner but I am learning and enjoying. I have watched a couple of Justin’s videos and thought I might supplement my learning adventure over here.


Welcome to the forum Brett

Hi Brett, from the middle of a corn field in the middle of USA.
Welcome to the good times.
Lots to learn hear on JustinGuitar. Justins the cat to help ya out too. He’s a real good teacher.

fwiw, I think perhaps the longer ya play and sing, the better you’ll get at it… :wink:
Myself, I for sure don’t sing. Yet… I find myself singing… go figure… :slight_smile:
I’m still working on the playing part… :wink:
Have fun man. To me, that’s what It’s about.
Many folks here to help ya out on your adventure too…

Welcome to the community from central Florida Brett!

Hey welcome Brett,
You’ll find loads of good things for your guitar journey here for sure!


Welcome Brett @BrettsStrat, from the Willamette Valley in Oregon where it’s, well, still raining. (Summer here is glorious though when it finally arrives!) Hope you stick around here. Not only is Justin an excellent and generous teacher, but this community is a resource unlike any other I’ve found. And there are plenty of non-singers here!

Brett, hello from an urban jungle in the south east of Germany, where the rain is cold and currently just a bit too much. :cloud_with_lightning_and_rain:
Welcome to the community!

Welcome Brett!

Welcome, Brett. It’s a great place you joined. My family used to vacation at Well’s Beach when I was a kid. I’m over in MIchigan now. Enjoy!

Welcome to the forum Brett. I started out thinking I couldn’t play or sing and then found out I could play and quite by accident that I could sing as well. Don’t count anything out.

Hi Brett,
Welcome here and I wish you a lot of fun :sunglasses:


Welcome to the community Brett from a very wet summer in UK.

Welcome to the community, Brett.
I’m just a little south of you on the seacoast of NH. The water isn’t much warmer but the beaches have some sand.

Hi Brett, welcome to the community forum. I’ve never used FP, even though I have a Strat, but I am sure that Justin can provide a lot of structured lessons and song tutorials to supplement what you are current learning. I’m from North Carolina, where to summers are hot and humid, but the beaches are sandy with cool breezes early and late in the day. Every place has its good and less good features.
