    Hi, my name is Andreas, and I live in Germany. I'm 46 years old. I love guitar music for all of my life, especially Rock and Blues. And a couple of weeks ago, I finally came to the conclusion: Why not play by myself? I found Griff's 4 note solo on youtube and was absolutely blown away. Since this solo is too difficult for me, right now, I started with BBG.

    Welcome Andreas! I was 48 when I started on bass guitar. I was 53 when I started guitar. It can be done and you've found the right teacher to get you started. :Beer:

    Welcome Andreas. I started with Griff 3 years ago and have never looked back. I too started with BBG and refer back to it very often. Ask any questions you have as there are a great bunch of folks here like you and i.
