    Glad to be here. I finally started playing a little over 1 month ago and I can’t get enough. I’ve loved music all of my life and it’s a big part of who I am. All kinds of music, from many eras including new groups. It’s like reading; whenever I read a passage that’s imaginative, clever and well constructed I will read and re-read to appreciate what the author did and how they got there. The same is true with music. It turns out I can write a little, but I never thought I could actually learn how to play music, especially as I got older. It turns out I can and it’s so addictive. When I’m not playing and practicing, I’m thinking about it and can’t wait to learn something new. When I sit down with my guitar it just feels right.

    Anyway, I started with an app on my phone and that has given me a nice structure to start learning, keep me on track, chart my progress and keep me from getting complacent with comfortable material. Still, I felt like something was missing. One day I was worried about my thick fingers and how slow my basic chord work was going, so I looked online for some help. I was lucky enough to find one of Tomas’ videos on Youtube on that very subject and he was so helpful and reassuring. That was what was missing; I needed a mentor. I’ll still use the app for some work but I have a mentor now. First I’m filling in a few gaps with starter lessons, and then on to new stuff!




    Hi Jim. Thanks for taking the time to tell us about yourself. Your enthusiasm is infectious. It helps me remember why I wanted to teach guitar. In fact I’m excited to go make some new lessons right now. I look forward to hearing from you more in the future.





    Hi Jim ,I like your cat!

    Welcome I’m sure you’ll be happy here. Tomas is a great guy and very helpful. I’ve been at it for a while slow learner I guess:)

    Besides the guitar, we have something in common. I’m just southeast of you down herein Hereford. Best of luck.
