An Old Dog Trying to Learn New Tricks!

1970 EKO Rio Bravo

Thanks to Everyone!

I have a renewed interest in the guitar since finding this web site. Thanks to all of you that have contributed to the lessons. I enjoy browsing through the lessons and trying the many that spark my interest.

This Old Dog!

I'm approaching my senior years from Dearborn, MI (near Detroit), orginally. I bought my first guitar (1970 EKO Rio Bravo IV) while stationed in Europe. I attempted to learn to play, but sought other interests. About 5 years ago, I dusted off the old guitar case, put on a new set of medium gage steel strings, and started playing again. Now, I try to practice whenever I have a few free seconds. Those seconds turn into minutes and those minutes can easily turn into an hour.
