Hello everyone. I’m Carl. 65 years old, retired 3 years ago and live in Scottsdale AZ in the winter and Bozeman Montana in the summer. Just started guitar 4 months ago. Have never played any musical instrument until now.Bought a starter guitar and started weekly private lessons in Scottsdale. Now I’m heading to Bozeman and needed a way to continue this journey – so I signed up with RGS. Very impressed already! Upgraded my guitar to a Taylor this week! Having a blast!
I started back in November and I’m currently on the 4th Beginners Adventure. I was surprised how quickly I was able to pick things up through these lessons. I’m embarrassingly slow, but I’ve been using Tomas’s 80/20 rule and move on when I feel I’ve got the lesson 80% down. I find that when I practice and go back to the older lessons I’m much better, I’ve also been getting a lot out of the daily practice sessions as they add to the variety of what I am able to play. Not retired and I’m plenty business and try to do a little every day. How do you find private lessons work along with this program?
