Hello from Minnesota

Post by jtrac » Sun Jul 02, 2017 2:29 am

Hello! I'm Jan from the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. I had played guitar for many years, had taken some lessons but then was self taught, and then for some reason just kind of ran out of things to play, kind of burnt out. It's been about 15 years since I played and I want to start up again.

I've played some classical (took lessons) but mostly fingerstyle on both classical and acoustic steel string guitars. A lot of that time was accompanying a singer, but that's not happening again. I just bought a new classical guitar which will be here next week. I'm very excited about it! Now I just need some songs to play, and I'm hoping that I can be gentle with myself, as I know that I quite rusty, my technique most likely has suffered quite a bit, and I wont be near where I was when I stopped playing all those years ago.

Just looking at the string selection is so much different from when I stopped!! So much has changed!
