Hi all,

I've been out for a while. My wife and I took some much needed vacation to Mexico. We had an awesome time there.It looks like I've miss out on some good discussions. I didn't take a chance in taking any of my guitars. I missed playing, but have been hitting it once again.

Hi all!

Today is our National Day of Prayer here in the US. A great time to pause and thank God for all He has blessed us with, as a nation and as individuals. Amen!

It's a site built by Neil Hogan, a popular guitar teacher on YouTube, called There you can do the same thing you do here: build a profile; start groups; learn songs. He's a good teacher but as of this week you have to get a paid subscription to learn full songs

Welcome Curt. You certainly have company. Many of us have trials and tribulations. Many are over 50 (I'm 54). There is plenty of help, encouragement and inspiration here.

HI all!
I found a mention of this group in one forum thread after signing up at the AG site a day or two ago. I've been learning to play very slowly on and off for a long time - longer than I care to admit.
While I'm hardly new to acoustic guitar I'm still very much a newb when it comes to playing so I thought this would be a great place to jump in.

As a youngster I took lessons for a short time and have "gone it alone" with various books and dvds since that time.
I recently attended a weekend seminar that has taught me more about music and music education and done more to motivate me than anything I've ever experienced. I now eagerly look forward to my daily practice sessions (49 days and counting) - something I could say only occasionally in the past.
Anyway, it's nice to have found this community and some more "old" newbies like myself, I'll be 56 this year.
I look forward to hearing all your experiences, continued learning and to the day when I might be able to offer help to another newbie.

Hi Barbara,
I have a video up on this site of a song played fingerstyle in open D tuning. I'll be offering downloadable lessons shortly on how the song was done as well as how to play in that tuning, with others to follow. If your interested, you might check it out.

Has anyone here gone to the Totallyguitars website to learn from Neil?

I too need to start playing with others. Got a buddy who plays and I'm going to give him a jingle when I get a chance.

I don't think I'll be near Chitown in the near future, but I appreciate the invite. Look me up if your anywhere near Harrisburg/Philly.
