Hello folks, decided to add this forum to my list.
Started playing in the early 60's as I think many here probably did, with a beat-up old acoustic, but it did well. Though the Shadows tunes didn't sound the same. I then got a Hofner blonde electro-acoustic that did me for quite a few years. Then I gave it up when I left home because of the job I had taken up, and then a family came along. After that I did not pick up a guitar for about 30+ years.
Some years ago I decided to get back into it, as I was drowned in music from very young. I was professionally taught on the cello and trumpet when I was in school, and my Dad was trained at the Royal Military School of Music at Kneller Hall.
Although I don't have much spare time I pick up one of my music sticks each day and learn (again) from places like YouTube. Just starting to learn fingerpicking.
