Hi Adrian! (Yes, I went to check your introduction  :) )
Thank you for the pleasant welcome.
JustinGuitar looks great and I thought joining this forum could provide something extra. I guess people relate to the common struggles of beginners. I really appreciate your comment and hope one day I can also help someone.

Hi, thought I'd introduce myself.

My name's Dave. I used to play bass and guitar a lot about 20 years ago, but real life sort of got in the way for a long time. I want to bring music back into my life and so I am picking up my instruments again. I was self-taught so I know a lot of chords already but my technique and fundamentals are sloppy (and rusty!) so I'm starting from the beginning with Justin's lessons to refresh my skills and see how far I can get. Just want to be able to play some songs that I like and hopefully once all the lockdowns are lifted maybe get together with some friends and jam now and then. I really like Justin's approach to lessons so hoping I can keep up with it.

Have to say that I've found this community to be amazing so far—everyone's so supportive and friendly and I really appreciate that.

Hi Dave

Sounds like you are in the right place and excellent idea to go through the BC. It will reaffirm what you know, show you some stuff you may have missed along the way and correct some of those dodgy techniques we all pick up following the teach yourself route.

Hope you enjoy the ride.

Cheers

Toby

Which guitar(s) do you own?
Waiting for it to arrive. Ibanez GIO GRX70QA-TKS

Update on this.
It took a while, but as of today, it's here.
I already made my first newbie mistake, trusting that the guitar/amp would include a basic cable to connect them. I'll have to wait a couple of days for that.
In the meantime, my fingers are already numb and full of pain. Good pain, though!

You have waited so long you can wait extra couple of days easy! :) as they say no pain no gain (but let's don't be too literal about it).

Keep on rockin' my friends
