Thanks for the welcome Walt!
Don't know why I never joined this Acoustic Guitar Community before, lots of different groups to join-in with, nice to find so many like minded people who all like Acoustic Guitars and the music.

Or you could come up to sunny CT!  It gets in the 90's and humid here too, just not 3/4 of the year.

Well, Dave, if you find yourself down here sometime we can play guitar on the beach! :-)

I've been a beginner on and off (mostly off) for 30 years but I've always loved chords.  I can play many open and barre chords but I haven't taken the time to put it all together to play much of anything.  I like to finger pick which will show up any poor fretting.  All I need is time and focus.  It would be easier if I could find someone local to play with.  Having 4 used Seagull guitars keeps me interested  I won't be quitting again, but I need to focus where I want to go. 

Keep on posting Phil!!!
