Now, at 59, I bought the guitar I've wanted for a long time because I'm determined to learn as much as I can and play with our church praise band and for family and friends. I'm lovin' it, practice at least an hour a night and more as time permits. I have learned to be patient with myself in these days. There are some songs I'd like to play, which are beyond my ability right now, but I'm set on developing the skills to one day be able to master 'em. I listen to those songs almost daily to keep me inspired to the skill level I want to achieve. It's great fun!
    Hi Bruce, we are the same age and have always wanted to play guitar. You are fortunate wih your practise discipline and I envy that. I look at Jamplay everyday and want to practise but just can't get that motivation or discipline? I wish there was one teacher here who gives me that nudge to play and practise. It's completely my doing and not blaming anyone else, just need that extra boot!

    I wish you luck and hope you can be the best for the praise band, friends and family.

    Cheers,

    Ron

    Hi kerry, I'm 65 and just started to learn guitar. I wanted to learn since I was a child. Learned to play an organ at age 15. Never to old to learn.

    Yeah! just turned 50. I had a couple of failed attempts, early on first probably in my early teens. I'm a lefty and back then you either learned to play right handed or turn the guitar upside down and re strung it. Neither where successful for me. So I resigned myself to never being able to play. I didn't know you could buy a left-handed guitar until last year? (I bought one straight away).
    5 months later! Greatest moment so far jamming to ACDC "Back in Black" backing track.

    Well I am 70 years young and I am just now trying my luck or skill at the guitar. I was malways to busy before to give myself a chance to learn. Now that I am retired I have more time for this. I also am fighting cancer and this gives me a chance to get away from my battle.

    Hi I just joined yesterday. I played guitary for 8 or 9 years but quit towards the end of college, never got very good. I needed money so I sold my 63 telecaster and Hummingbird to pay for my tuition. I started taking lessions locally 3 months ago and decided to supplement them with jamplay. I play a Martin 000-18ge, its the best acoustic I have played. I'm enjoying getting back into guitar. Working on Blackbird now, my buddy says his instructor doesn't teach Blackbird cause everytime he teaches it the student quits. I don't know its not hard just takes time to learn. Oh, I'm 58 live in Norhern California

    Hello, 49 here so...you're certainly not the only one who remembers 8-tracks and cassettes (and vinyl, maybe!) who is learning the guitar. Trying to keep at it. A little frustrated with my "progress," but I'm not giving up.

    Ya know, I felt so silly buying my second-ever guitar last week ... at age 55! It's been soooooo many years, that I've gotta start from scratch.

    Thirteen pages in this thread! Now I don't feel silly at all. A little less avant-garde, maybe ... but company's a Good Thing.

    I am new to the guitar and JamPlay. I am 61 and I'm so thrilled at what I'm learning. JamPlay allows me to be a new player and to also learn Country Blues. I love it. :jamfest:

    So many of us!

    I don't know what's more amazing -- what I remember, or what I don't.
