    Hi all! I am a 77 year old retired teacher who decided to learn how to play the guitar. I have discovered that my fingers are not as flexible as they used to be. :) My older brother started playing guitar when he was about 10, so I have a lot of catching up to do!!

    Welcome Bernie. I have been really glad I found BGU 2 months ago. I’m working on 3 courses and seeing progress.
