    I bought a acoustic guitar in my teenage years but never go serious but now I got a second hand electro ascoustic plus a cheap electric one at 70 years old I don’t desire to be a rock star but just learn it for my own pleasure

    I’m a student of “Guitar Tricks” and wanted to play the Guitar because of my Great-grand father! He was a great player and it was my great-grandma dream that I would also play! I’m struggling with finding time to practice and to find a smooth way to flow ith the learning process at “Guitar Tricks”, but i’m hopeful? God bless YOU Lisa!

    Overhall, I consider, than playing guitar is a very good exercise for the brain. Furthermore, and it’s the most important point for me,

    is than i can do my own accompaniment when i am singing my favorite song.

    Yeah, I love that about the guitar too. As long as you have your guitar nearby in your life, you can make music and sing. Doesn’t even matter if the power goes out!

    That’s wonderful – it is never ever too late to get started, right?

    My grandfather played guitar too! He lived not far from the Martin Guitar factory in Pennsylvania, and used to take me there for factory tours. It was so awesome! We played together and it was a great way for us to connect across the generations.

    I am so sorry to hear about your losses. And I am delighted to know you are finding comfort and companionship with your guitar. My Dad turns 80 this week, and he has been playing ukulele for just over a year. It’s never ever too late to discover the joy of making music! All best wishes, Lisa
