For several months but alone. I listen to you tube and have a lot of sheet music.
Hard to say. I understand the structure of songs and read music and tablature. I know guitar cords and can find different scales. For some unknown reason I get confused and quite anxious about strumming. I need regular practice; my fingers are out of shape. I guess I can best be described as a quasi-beginner who can come on pretty quickly.
I'm interested in lessons and playing,social and open mic lastly. At my age I seek the mental and whole body exercise unique to music. I would love to be able to perform in front of people without getting shaky and tongue-tided.
I have a Hilo acoustic baritone uke that I play. I also have a small homemade appearing uke with nylon strings. I took it to a music store, and neither I nor they could figure out how to string it.
Hi-I am a 68 yr old man and have been interested in folk, old country blues, and old time gospel. I have an extensive memory for older songs and singers. I am shy and self-conscious with stage fright.
