Hi, Ben from Melbourne, Australia. Early 40's and been playing guitar for a couple of years now, decided to learn something new and constructive and stop myself from just sitting in front of the tv after putting the young kids to bed. Didn't realise how much fun it would be, wish I started earlier. Always liked all types of music, didn't matter what it was as long as it sounded good to me. Rock, punk, alternative, country, electronic, even rap I have songs I love. Since playing guitar though I've found myself really getting into the blues. Listening to guys like Freddie King, Lightning Hopkins, Hubert Sumlin with Howlin Wolf, all I want to do when picking up the guitar is learn and play the blues. Came across some of Griff's youtube videos and now here I am, starting BGU and hopefully a lifetime of blues guitar.
