I'm still here, too.  I don't get in here as much as I'd like to.......but I enjoy the postings.  Just "keeping it fun".

What's involved with being an Administrator? If it's not too much I would consider it.

Still here.  Practicing 3-4 times a week.  Looking forward to finally recording myself to hear what I sound like.

I check all the groups when I get an email about a new comment or new message.

I'm sort of a 30 year newb.  I started about 30 years ago and gave up for many years, picking up the guitar about 3 years ago.  I have limited time to play/practice.  Married with children, and I spen more time fixing guitars that playing them.  Any my memory sucks.  I'm a goldfish with a guitar.  I forget things very quickly, so when I pick up a guitar I can only noddle around with strumming or finger picking some basic chord progressions.  I need to pull up a PDF or a book to actually try to play anything.  There's almost no sense trying to learn something new because I don't practice enough to burn it into my brain.  So it's gone the next day, or sooner.

I am here, as well...but, I confess other situations have reduced my intended presence.  That said, I still look in on our community.

So am I.  However, we have a situation.  A few years ago, Derrick Miller, founder of this Group, appointed me and one other man as co-administrators so he could step into the background for personal reasons. For the past two years I have been pretty busy with travel and writing, and not so much with music, and that looks to continue, so I'm no longer in a good position to contribute much to the group's upkeep. A few months ago I asked both Derrick and the other guy if they wanted to step back into this, but I got no response. I suspect, too, that many if not most of the folks who were truly newbies when they joined the group are no longer newbies, but have grown greatly in their guitar playing skills.  We need to recruit some new(bie) blood. So here's the opportunity:

If anyone in the Group would like to become an Administrator and try to get some more activity going here, please let me know.
