Hello Peak and welcome to the forum.

Being able to play without it sounding too awful is a pretty good goal I'd say.

Hi, I'm Martin


I came across Justin on Utube some time ago and purchased one of his beginners books, but time and work got in the way and I put the guitar back in loft.
 Moving on a couple of years and in my retirement year, and with a little more time on my hands, it's back down again. Time for a little catch up :)

Nickname: Rosewhisper
Real (full) name: Casey (I'd rather not give my surname sorry)
Age and birthday: I'm 31 (I'd rather not give my DOB sorry)
Habitat: UK

Which guitar(s) do you own?
I'm not really sure what it's called I'm afraid, I know it's a freedom, I literally purchased it from a supermarket in a starter set.
Which guitar do you currently play on?
The same one.
Which amp(s) do you own?
Freedom GFB-10, although I've never used it! I tend to play using rocksmith or I play it unplugged.
How long have you been playing guitar?
Just under 5 months so far. It's awesome!
Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?
Symphonic power metal.
Which genre do you play on your guitar often?
Uhh...maybe the rocksmith lessons, that's about it sadly :(
Who are your favorite bands?
Probably Nightwish
What inspired you to start playing guitar?
I've always wanted to do it but I've always had the thought that it would be impossible for me because I have a disability, but sometimes when you've wanted to do something for years and years eventually it just bubbles over doesn't it?
Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
No, too early for that I think. It doesn't help that I don't know anyone else who plays IRL at the moment.
Why do you play guitar?
I needed a creative outlet in life and I hoped that it would be one, what I wasn't expecting though is how incredibly fun it is and that feeling of accomplishment is addictive!
What are your goals for the future?
I really don't know how far I can take it, I expect I will hit a limit eventually but I haven't hit that yet, when I picked it up I didn't even think I'd be able to play a camp fire song so the fact that I'm starting to develop any skill at all has been overwhelming and I think that my goal will forever keep moving forward. I think a humble one could be maybe one day years from now I might be playing the 12 bar blues backing track but I'm not sure I'll ever get there, we can dream though can't we? :)

Started playing guitar as a teen (70's).  Stopped when I dislocated a finger on my left hand.  Picked it back up and played (never got good) into my twenties.  Eventually bought a brand new '84 Gibson Custom Les Paul.  Tried to keep playing but got married an had children.  Now I'm retired, want to pick up playing again and found this great site! After going thru all the beginner intro videos andsetting up my LP, I'm ready to start.  Wish me luck!  ;)

What are your goals for the future? To get good enough to at least play along with the music I have on vinyl. Yeah, I'm old but I got to see all the good bands.

By the way Justin, we have a lot in common. I used to motorcycle drag race but gave that up when I saw too many of my friends having getoffs at speed. Took up skydiving instead. 2000 jumps and competed at a Nationals level. My main gig was doing the blots. Formations of 100 or more. Getting married and having responsibility cooled that off. However my bride and I scuba dive and go to Cozumel nearly every year. And yeah, I don't get to go as often as I like. Oh, and your obsession with chocolate? Get over it. Chocolate is one of the four major food groups. Don't deny yourself.
