Hi Justin Just wanted to say a massive thanks. Your stuff is great......   I could always play guitar here and there- nothing spectacular but that never worried me. And recently I have had some time to get back more into playing guitar and found your stuff which has really changed my playing. Not anymore being able to just pick up and play a tune but now more focused on playing with technique and style i guess you could say. Its almost like i am a beginner again which I am actually enjoying.

Following other posts and to introduce myself. I am Daniel 26 Australian, living in New Zealand though.
Have played guitar on and off for as long as I can remember thanks to my musical family. Really love playing and listening to stripped back acoustic- the raw emotional stuff...... Favorite artist- the waifs. paul kelly, the finns- crowded house. john buttler. newton faulkner. james reyne etc etc.
At the moment I have a folk cort acoustic.
Earlier this year I broke my ankle which has sidelined me from my usual activites so have found the time to get more  out of my guitar.

Thank you Justin and to all the people here who make this a community. I've been following Justin, buying the books and checking YouTube videos for a few years now. Initially it was for my daughter. Her teacher  got us to buy the books and soon I became interested as well. Now she's 14 and one of our favourite things to do together is sing and play guitar. I've tried learning guitar a couple of time before with no success. Now I have a guitar buddy at home and a community here there's no way I'll quit.

Thanks all!

Thanks Justin.  I really appreciate all that you do.  Your instruction has been a great help to me.  I was on a Facebook site from here in Canada, Dave's World of Fun Stuff which is a guitar repair page.  Dave also has a YouTube page.  Someone new to guitar asked on his Facebook page where he could get some good lessons and Justin Guitar was mentioned several times.  I guess I'm not alone thinking you are doing a great job!  Thanks again Justin!

Hey there Justin.

I've been a bassist for many years, but kind of faded away from music. I've always meant to learn the guitar properly, but I never quite got round to it, I've got a bit of free time now so decided to pick up my accoustic and give it a proper go, really amazing thing you've put together here. I haven't donated anything yet, but I definitely plan to either donate something or buy some merchandise when I get through the intermediate course.

Best, Richard.

Just wanted to stop by in this forum and say thank you for this website! I can't afford guitar lessons right now due to some personal stuff going on in my life and I'm also an aspie so I'm not good with dealing with teachers face to face. This site is helping me get the ball rolling when it comes to learning to play guitar.

Hi there,

I'm delighted to be here, and really enjoying the wealth of resources available. (Donation on the way shortly, I think its important to support any ventures like this.) 

So I've played acoustic all my life,  but bought an electric guitar two years ago, when I turned 60 and left Ireland, where I'd lived all my life.

Fast forward to the Dordogne in France, ( yes, I'm learning the lingo!)  - and plucked up the courage to join a zicos dating site! ( They call musicians zicos here, and no, it's not actually for "dating", it's for getting together).  So from there I somehow joined a French Rock Band, and played about 10 gigs over the summer. It was way outta my comfort zone - but I've learned that one way to stay engaged with life, vibrant and "young in spirit" is to keep trying new things.

Right now Im wanting to really make strides in my playing as I learn how to sing properly too !
Un grand merci to you Justin, I really appreciate what you are offering here.
