    Hello to everyone here. I am new member from Austin, TX looking forward to learning how to play the blues. I am a beginning intermediate player (that will probably need to relearn almost everything I know!) ;^) but I am committed to learning even though I am 67.

    Welcome to the forum Rick! Good to have you with us!! :thumbup:

    I pretty much had to drop everything I was doing and relearn using a new method as well. I'm sure that you are in good company with many of us! :Beer:

    Yes, I second this. I think a lot of us on this site are in the same boat doing this.

    Welcome

    I’m kinda new also, kinda old also....I turn 69 in a month....gasp......

    Lots of good stuff here to find. I have been playing for long time and Griff’s teaching program is the best I have ever found. You will enjoy it.
