    So at 61 I decided to quit procrastinating and just buy a guitar and learn something new...So I bought a Epiphone Les Paul which I really enjoy. I enjoyed it so much I bought a Fender telecaster and a Gibson g-45. Not bad for someone who can't even play a song yet......
    So after 2 months of u-tubing and a hand full of lessons(which I still take) I decided structure, structure, structure. I practice 2 hours every night and have noticed improvement however I feel as though its just scales and riffs with no ending. So I stumbled upon BGU and the old saying "lets start from the top" entered my mind. Finally structure. So far I am really enjoying the course and the methodical approach. And Blues has always been my favorite genre' . I reside in Senoia Ga. and look forward to a solid place for information
    cheers

    Howdy and welcome! Is Senoia Walking dead country? I spent a lot of time at the Courtyard in McDonough back in 2016 while working at ZTL in Hampton. There's some pretty girls there that work at Arby's. (y)
