    Smile Greetings from Italy!

    Hello everyone,


    A few lines to introduce myself...


    I've had a guitar for almost 40 years but I have only been playing on and off since then. More off than on, of course. Every so many years I pick it up, take the rust off on the very few things I have learned (always the same things), and then for one reason or another, I always give up. Usually due to the overwhelming frustration I feel when I (soon) encounter my limits. But also because I had 5 different teachers and none of them had what it takes to get me going for real. Over time I have added a couple more guitars in the process.


    I became a jamplay member a few years back, my last go at it before now.


    This time a few things have changed. I have more time, the kids finally sleep at night, and I have a room where I can leave the guitars on their stand and connected to all the associated toys (PC, audio interface etc.), which means that I no longer have to spend half the time setting things up first and cleaning up the mess after. Those of you who are married know what I mean! Plus, it helps that with Jamplay, and internet in general, you can learn stuff at your own pace and at the weirdest hours.


    And in fact, in the last couple of months I made more progress than in the last 30+ years all together.

    Ciao!

    I'm not married and I know what you mean! I finally gained a room that is being used for music, but I'm still cleaning and organizing stuff so that I can have my guitar out at all times.

    Best Wishes with your guitar learning! May the children cooperate and help you get far quickly!

    Something that helped me was buying a guitar hanger system. Now my guitars are out where I can see them and I can quickly grab one off the wall anytime. I'm playing much more since I installed this. I can recommend Diamond Life Gear. (I'm not affiliated with them in any way. I just like their product and service.)

    Cheers!

    Welcome. Your story sounds identical to mine. Except for me it was more like 50 years. Once I retired I decided that I was finally going to learn how to play. It has been a great pass time for me. At my age I learn slower, but I am in no rush, sometimes the journey is better than the destination.
