Description
Self-taught 50yo, having picked up the guitar in 2009. Self taught simply equates to having learned a lot of bad habits - now needing broken.

I learned by listening to old classic Neil Young - I like folk type music as well as slow acoustic blues; just can't seem to play the latter (the lead parts anyway). I can play well enough to sit around a campfire, singing with friends - and seem to be at least better than the small group I "jam" with.

For christmas (2014), after complaining that I have hit a wall in my playing, my wife purchased a month's worth of guitar lessons from a local instructor. After finding PB, however, I will sign on after this month of lessons is complete. I look forward to learning more theory (currently self taught) and working toward practice techniques for overall improvement.

Thanks guys.While finishing up with this guy in town (poor feller, doesn't even know he won't see me next month), I've been practicing the spider exercises and some of the scales from PB's free lessons. I can blast through chords, adding good sounding hammer-ons and pull-offs - but with these spiders, my fingers refused to talk to my brain!! .... heheh. Its humbling to say the least.On the lessons, after I sign on, will my playing goals count anything toward how quickly I can progress through ...
