I decided to start this blog because I’m a late comer to learning the guitar. I’m not sure where I’m going to go with it, but for now I’ll just post about my experiences with taking up the guitar at a later than normal time in life.
I’m a 36 year old photographer in San Francisco California. I’ve always loved guitars. If I had my way I’d have a room full of guitars of all types. To be honest, I’m not 100% new to the guitar. I’ve actually been playing here and there most of my life. I first took lessons when I was about 11 years old. But, as with most things kids do, I didn’t stick with it… I was much more interested in going out causing trouble around town on my skateboard. The requisite practicing never took place and the lessons didn’t last long… I think I expected to instantly be good at the guitar and when that didn’t happen I lost interest.
