Description
I'm 42, Canadian. First picked up guitar at 13 but learned very very little. Now picked it up again with intention of picking up electric in a year or so. Willing to make commitment in spare time outside of full time job while also pursuing online Master's in Education. So, thank God I can afford a maid here!

I don't sing, don't jam yet. I like to learn finger picking songs which only feature one guitar, no other instruments. Looking forward to being in a band for fun playing: Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, Guns n' Roses, Pink Floyd, Dire Straights, Blue Oyster Cult, Nazareth, AD/DC, you get the picture. :)

I'm hoping to learn the 'correct' way to play acoustic and electric. No short cuts. I may have some 'unlearning' to do with my left hand grip of the neck. Pebber's videos have answered a few questions in my head but I still have one or two. Answers are probably there just need more time to look. Thanks Pebber. :)

Well, it's not quite as bad as the adverts I've seen for products that say 'Become a guitar God in 15 minutes'. I think that's about as bad as it gets!

Jimmy Page as an early teen and was taught the little fast solo in Whole Lotta Love. But with no effects it didn't sound good and I don't think it was correct note given by my teacher to start with.

Well, yesterday my bluetooth headset broke. They were a good set, Plantronics. So I'm in the market for another one but for use with my electric I guess I need to forget the Bluetooth and use a cord. I already have my foot stuck to my Line 6 so I can't go far. Any recommendations on a good headphone set to use with my stomp box?

Not using updated driver? I'm not running it through a computer. So there is software on the line 6 that has to be updated? Bummer. I'm sure I've seen Paul Gilbert play using wireless headphones, presumably Bluetooth. You wouldn't think he'd play using that if there was a delay. I don't have an amp yet but I'll plug the headphones in directly to rule out the Bluetooth dongle.Cheers!

I am an elementary school teacher but have helped school guitar club for Graces 3-5. My opinion: My students were immediately taught chords with small 6-strings and also reading staff music. I think that's a mistake. It takes weeks for them to hold a simple chord that sounds terrible and there's nothing they can do with it. I think they should be first taught tab and simple single note songs: anything from Mary Had A Little Lamb to the melody of songs they like to listen to be it Justin Bieb...
