Hey everyone, I’m Ryan. I’m 34 years old and finally giving this learning adventure a real try. Dabbled with a cheap First Act electric when I was 16 for about 2 weeks while reading lessons online but it didn’t stick. Put it down for about 5 years and did the same thing but this time just trudging through tabs. Repeated this process of picking it up and putting it down until about a month ago when I found this site. Really loving the course structure that Justin put together. I’m currently on the beginner grade 2 module 11. I seemed to have a bunch of guitars land in my lap recently as well which may have reignited my desire to learn slightly;
Mid 60’s Teisco hollowbody that seems to be a relatively unique variant with a giant body and a super long stretch from the bridge to the tremolo.
An old 60’s Global classical.
A mid-late 70’s Yamaha FG-360 that plays and sounds beautiful. Currently my favorite.
Hey Ryan, welcome to the community, great to hear from you. The great thing, from my perspective, about learning the guitar is what a great reward the guitar gives you along the way. Keep at it, you won’t regret it and you’ll be a member of an exclusive club for sure!
Going to try uploading some pictures below for Ardemenz and anyone else who’s interested in seeing them. They all need some cleaning but I did recently take everything off the Teisco and clean the hardware, neck, frets. Didn’t dare take the pickups off, not familiar with the electronics and don’t want to damage anything further haha. Unfortunately didn’t have any polish or oil for the neck but did what i could.
Also forgot to mention that I had been playing the ukulele a lot before i picked my guitar back up. Found it to be a fun but easy learn and just relaxing to play and enjoy. Finally decided i needed more of a challenge with a guitar and I’m having a blast so far.
Hello Ryan, and a warm Welcome to the community . Justins course is great. In this forum are quite a lot of former on-off-guitar players, who - after finding Justin Guitar - finally stick with it .
I wish you lots of fun with your beautiful guitars .
