@ Jim McHie

I think you hit on the Keyword there
Disposable Income.

Does anyone here subscribe to Acoustic Guitar U?  It is a sister site to this one through Acoustic Guitar Magazine, for-pay.  The price is reasonable, I keep thinking when I can get a couple more dollars in disposable income per month that I'll spring for it.

My own 2 cents worth...  There are a LOT of free guitar tutorials on youtube, some better than others.  my personal favorite is a guy named Marty Schwartz.  he has a couple of youtube channels  

  one of them is called "youcanlearnguitar" 

another is "martyzsongs"  

he also has a website  ""

There a a bunch of good online teachers,  this is just my personal favorite.

In your quest for Internet Guitar Instruction, Don't overlook this one very important lesson given by our own Walt Pilcher..

Mark...I've only been at this for about 3 years. At 63, I have no goal of ever playing in public. I just enjoy playing and learning new things in retirement. Keep It Fun, Dean

I will take your advice Dean.  I love music & playing guitar is a life long dream of mine.  I hope to perform some day at local venues.  Thanks ValleyGirl
