Mitch's Guitar Pipe Dream

About me.

I have been playing for about two years (on and off) and I am at a point where I really want to learn an entire song! I'm still at that point where I can play the beginning riff to about 20 songs, but I can't finish any of them. I am really interested in one day writing my own songs.

What I would like to do

I have been playing by myself, but if there are any other newbie locals, I would love to get together and play once or twice a week and maybe learn from each other. So, if anyone from uptown New Orleans area wants to get together and see if we could learn from each another, please email me.
