    i'm gonna finally knock the dust off my old 1963 silvertone! a few quick repairs (lipstick pickups and speaker for the case amp) and it'll be a cool guitar to learn on! I'm so excited about this course!

    if anyone needs a guitar for this let me know, i have not decided. Im currently learning Bagpipe. Im not sure if I want to do both at the same time. Id be willing to loan out my acoustic. (thats if I dont take the course) these courses are awesome dont listen to the nay sayers, youll be impressed. You could even minor in another subject ya just need to read up on how thats done. These courses are free. some of the ones that offer accreditation do require you to pay to take a test.
