W. want to play guitar again O. it's been about 30 years!

Postby inspiresuccess » Tue Aug 05, 2014 10:02 am

Hi,

I posted this in the wishes and obstacles section and it has now disappeared. So, I'm trying again in this forum.

I taught myself to play guitar from books when I was in my early twenties. I'm now 59 years old. starting over.

I've ordered some CD's, DVD's, and books about teaching yourself guitar. I'd like support from the boards to keep moving forward with this. I can't take a guitar class because I'm temporarily without a car. and can't afford lessons. so I'm on my own.

I live in the San Francisco East Bay area in California, so if there is anyone out there in my area who wants to learn to play together, I'm open to that.

In the meantime, my books, etc. will be delivered tomorrow and I'll let you know the names of them and what I think of them so if anyone on the boards is thinking about teaching themselves guitar I can share what I've found to help with that.

I don't know why my post was deleted. I looked in other areas like general ideas, idea parties, etc. but it didn't seem to have been moved anywhere -- just deleted. Square Peg, you gave me some good ideas from your daughter but they've been deleted I guess, so if you could post them again, I'd be much obliged.

I agree about YouTube! Just go on at any time (before your books get there) and search for 'Guitar Lessons' or 'Beginning Guitar' or 'How to play guitar,' and you'll be amazed at what you find.

I think it's wonderful you are going to focus on playing again. This is suppose to be a great tool/technique for learning how to play quickly and easily - as in minutes! ChordBuddy http://chordbuddy.com
