In the Groove!
Hi! I've been playing guitar and bass for over 35 years -- and I'm STILL taking lessons. The more I learn, the more questions I have. That's the kewl thing about music -- there's no way to know it all.
I'm a gear freak. I admit it. Gizmos and gadgets fascinate me. I'm an electronics hobbyist, an expert woodworker, a so-so photographer, and a writer (just finished my first novel). I'm 51 and I've been retired for 3 years and spending more time on my music. Currently, I play bass in a blues/rock group. But I still enjoy my 6- and 12-string guitars. Play 'em all the time. I play the sax, flute, drums, and a little keyboard -- but I'm no expert on those instruments, that's for sure. My advice to newbies? Don't get hung up on brand names when it comes time to choose an axe! Play 'em all and pick what fits you in your price range. Period. There's a lot of good stuff out there. Go slow.
