Hi everyone !
 This is a fantastic forum (and Thanks to Justin for having such a great website)  8)

Old rocker here ... used to play in a few bands decades ago, nothing to print money with though.
Anyway, I had almost completely stopped playing guitar for years due to the work career and family demands (if that is a good way to define family.

I used to own several electric guitars and a couple of acoustics but, due to the financial demands of going to university, I had to sell some great gear.
I am now left with my old Norman B30 (1984); an older Ibanez 12 strings (1973) and a newer (to be sold soon) Ibanez Artcore semi-acoustic.
Before I think of acquiring new gear (that is called "GAS" --- Gear Acquisition Syndrome) I'd better get back to playing/practicing.

Now the bad news: I have to start all over again:
- Difficulty to remember where my fingers should go!
- Terribly sore fingertips!!
- I have to "re-learn" which chords are which ...
and the list goes on.

So, I found this fine site (Justin Guitar) and also this forum in the hope that I will be able to catch up with my years of neglecting playing guitar.
I now officially consider myself a "beginner with experience"  ;)
I have already taken a couple of lessons from the website and it is such a pleasure to have a teacher right there when you need it.

So there: bless you all and looking forward to browsing the forum.

Cheers! 8)
