Name: Scott
Location: Boston
Guitar: Danelctro Hodad

I've played drums since I was young and have tried teaching myself guitar and piano also, but after 25 years, I haven't put much time in and still only can play a few easy chords.  I'm trying to pick it up again and am encouraged by Justin's style of instruction and free lessons.  I hope I stick with it and become somewhat proficient.

 Hi, I'm David Miller. I'm 75 years old and have been trying to learn to play guitar since 1962. I first heard Duane Eddy's "Rebel 'Rouser" in 1958 and fell in love with that twang sound; then Link Wray, the Ventures, and the surf bands. I'm a fan of Judas Priest and Iron Maiden but I prefer the old stuff. I've collected some guitars and amps, Fenders, mostly. I've actually learned some useful technique just with the D, A, and E exercises, so I look forward to real improvement with these lessons.

Hi my name is daren and I am 48.
Found Justin on you tube 5 months
Ago when I decided to have a go at
Learning guitar.
A work colleague gave me his encore
Strat to start with.
I have since bought My own epiphone les paul standard it's second hand but in good condition.
Also just bought an ibanez tcm50.

Progress Is a bit slow but I'm in no hurry
Just enjoying the journey.

I've had a few accidents at work in the
Past to my fingers so wasn't sure how
I would get along.
But now they are starting to get used to
It and I think it has actually helped them.

I traded in a few old guitars that were in my basement for a nice used Ibanez RG450DX.  It plays really nice and it came with a sturdy hard case.  I am excited to be learning on such a quality instrument!
