Hola! My name is Craig. I’m 75 and live on a small “tied” island in Lake Erie called Catawba. I bought my first guitar in Europe in 1963…a German Framus, nylon string, Acoustic. Traded it for a Yamaha in the 90’s which is pretty much all I play, even though I also own a copper-faced Dobro. I never learned to play with a pick…nor to barre chords…and my strum patterns are pretty limited. I’m a good lyricist, though, and found early on that basic knowledge of melodies and chord progressions really helped with the construction of songs. My goal is becoming a better musician so I can expand and vary my writing. Am just hoping my hands are strong and flexible enough to do this. Looking forward to learning and playing with all of you!
