Justin,

Your site is fantastic and working on the Beginners Course has changed everything for me in terms of learning guitar.  I also love the song lessons.  You are the surely the best (virtual) jam buddy anybody could want.

In keeping with the spirit of your mission, now that I am staying with it, I have signed up for a monthly donation as well as having purchased hard copies of the Beginner Songbooks. And I hope many more people have done the same since you put up the Donations page on the website.

Thank you.

This forum is also fascinating and inspirational. So thanks to all those people who help make it run.

All the best for all of you

David

Justin,

Thank you so much.  I am nearly 61 years old and while sitting around a campfire around 15 years ago, an acquaintance was playing his guitar.  I had seen him playing many times before and I finally asked "how hard is to learn how to play?'  He told me to forget it, it takes many years and I was too old - funny thing is that he was older than I am (but learned to play many years ago).  I foolishly listened to him and kept the desire to play stowed away.

I will be retiring in about a year or so and will have loads of time to learn, so I mentally ditched that acquaintance's advice and I started looking around the web to investigate.  I found many tabs sites, started playing some basic songs (ok, just two songs!) and really liked it.  I thought there must be a better way and I finally stumbled onto your website and I like the way you talk to your students, how you encourage people, and how you break things down into simple pieces to work on.  After a day or so of reading on your website and watching your videos, I ordered both your beginners course book and song book.  I think I am nearly done with the Stage 1 - I mostly have A,E, and D down and am practicing on switching.  I can hit around 20x/minute, but feel like it needs to be smoother, so I am going to take my time.

I must say I am having fun playing, but after listening to your guitar on the CDs, I am going out to the guitar store and 'am just to go look' at something with a little more depth to it.  I am playing on a beginner guitar which sounds alright, but i want to explore. Gonna go see some Martins.

Thanks again
