Hello! this is Joan Farré from Catalonia.

Learned myself somewhat about the guitar around 93 til 96... founded a band.... lots of fun indeed...

Live changed... no guitar, don't really why I stopped to play... until my daughter insisted to learn music and then I picked the guitar again... and... thanks god I found justinguitar ;-). Being serious about justin since December.

My first record since 20years ago (that I promise is enough to forget almost everything about guitar skills)

See you around!

Joan

Hi everybody,

Grey haired old rocker here.

So I turned 61 years old two weeks ago. Haven't played guitar for nearly 40 years. So I decided - it's time.

Went into town and got me some stuff, and I am having a blast.

Cant believe how technology has changed in all those years. Hell back then we thought we were styling if we new somebody that had a printed Chord book or song book. There was no such thing as a Photostat machine back then, so copy and paste was done with a pen or pencil and a paper notepad.

Now we have Justin Guitar - ooh what a difference.

I am battling with, sore fingertips, stiff chord finger muscles and sticking to rhythm.

A bug just bit while I wasn't paying attention.

No.

To be able to play a reasonable repertoire of fun songs at a party, and to be able to just chill and play by myself in a quiet place.

Looking forward to learning a lot here, contributing where I can, and making new friends/associations.

Folk rock, classic rock and grunge/alt. I love to learn Simon and Garfunkel songs.

Who are your favorite bands?
Too many to list, but the biggest ones include Alice in Chains, Simon & garfunkel, the Beatles

What inspired you to start playing guitar?
I've just always been around music. My dad got me a guitar when I turned 9 and I was nervous because I didn't know what to do with it. I actually started learning violin not long after I got the guitar and that consumed a lot of my time. I love the violin though, and I think it has helped me with my dexterity and learning capabilities because it's such a difficult instrument. In high school I got an acoustic for christmas and it really motivated me to learn. So I started learning chords from songs I liked and just went from there.

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
I've never played in a proper band before.

Why do you play guitar?
I'm a very musical person. Guitar is a versatile instrument and there are many people to learn from and enjoy it with. While frustrating at times, it's fun.

What are your goals for the future?
Someday I want to play in a band. I want to be able to get in front of people and play songs all the way through confidently. Right now I just don't have that yet. My partner is great at guitar and inspires me to get better. Soon I want to be confident enough to play with him.
