Story of One Year

OK, I am totally new to the guitar.  Bought my first guitar at the age of 41 (earlier this month - February, 2015).I enjoy the practice sessions I have, and try to get a minimum of 30 minutes per day.  No frustrations yet, but I am not naive enough to think there won't be a time when I am frustrated by my lack of abilities and apparent lack of progress...I think it happens with anything that is worth working to learn.So, I'm just looking for stories from people who are right around one year on…See More

"Hi Fred. I'd be interested to know what it sounds like. Not really keen on it due to the smaller nut width, so not in the market foi it. But I also love the sound of an OM21. (I actually preferred it to the more expensive OM28). So if this…"

Elton Bloye replied to Alan Cargile's discussion I wrote a new song. in the group Worship Leaders
"BTW - If you go for a Radial PZ pedal, you get a great DI, an EQ and a boost all in one. It covers a lot of ground. It also allows you to control your own EQ - you can brighten up, make it mellow, make it sharper etc. If I were in your position as…"

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly.
