    Hi everyone.
    Im from Leicester in the U.K. and I’ve been wanting to learn to play the guitar, specifically the Blues, for a number of years with a few failed attempts in between and I have just purchased the Beginners Blues Course as I really like the idea of learning to play the guitar but with a Blues structure.
    I am determined to stick to it this time and my long term goal is to play in a Blues Jam Night.

    Go for it Steve!!!!! Welcome to the forum. You've chosen a great instructor to take you there. There's a BGU UK Live event on the 8th November at The Bell, Driffield. Yorkshire. They are great places to meet likeminded people. Artyman will keep you right on this one. Enjoy the ride.(y)

    Hi Steve and welcome to the forum, as already mentioned the annual gettogether is on the weekend 9/10th of November though most of us arrive on the Friday. I went to my first four years ago as a very nervous beginner, and had a great time so it's really recommended. Chris Hurst (obsidianskies) is the man who is co-ordinating it, if you are interested give me a shout and I'll let you have Chris's email address.
