What inspired you to start playing guitar? I've enjoyed singing for a while, including at church. Our former church had a very deep and talented band. We recently moved to a smaller church which needs more singers and musicians. So I'm starting the process to sing with them and want to work into playing guitar as well. Plus I've always thought it would be fun to play and sing just for myself to songs I like.

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band? Nope.

Why do you play guitar? To supplement singing?

What are your goals for the future? To get good enough to play with our church team

Hi Justin,Hi all! Im a 71 year old retired Truck driver,I raise honey bees and fool with my guitar these days.I got a low price LesPaul /line 6 amp.I used to play a long long time ago,but just makin noise with the boys No one was really serious and I always wanted to be.So I made up my mind and then buggered up my index finger on the table saw.My biggest problem is not my finger but my hard head.I thought the simple stuff was just below me.But I bought the 4chord app off of steam just for some fun .Turns out that im not as good at guitar as I used to be.Timing,smoothness.quick changes.all of it.But Im working on it everyday and having fun with it and am seeing some improvement.Ill get a paid option when I think I can handle it.Other than that Im just an old coot living out in the sticks here in Michigan. Have no friends anymore.They just kinda all died off.Was hopin I would make a few friends here.I follow Justin,Andy and Mark the guitar guy.Thats about all.The rest just end up confusing me,LOLI have confidence In Justins teaching or I would not waste my time.My favorites are those old.Did I say Old? Western Ballads.
