    Hi,
    My name is Tom and I am in my mid-fifties. I played guitar in high school and then let life get in the way. I have recently become disabled with a low back injury, and have decided to use my now abundant time to get back into the guitar. I have been getting Griff's emails for a while and poking around on the internet, but just decided to get with it and ordered a course from BGU. I hope that I can get to a level of being able to play the blues.

    Welcome to the Forum Tom and congrats on finding Griff.  This is a very special place and you're gonna love it here.

    Make sure you post your progress in the lessons area - it is great for seeing where you were and how far you've come in the course and on your quest to play your guitar.  And if you have any guitar playing or music theory questions, there are plenty of people here ready, willing and more than happy to help!

    Welcome, Tom!  I have a strong feeling that was only the first of many courses you will buy from Griff!
