I'm sort of an older guy when it comes to playing guitar. This journey started in March of last year after my daughter and I went to see Amos Lee in New Orleans. As we were leaving some organization was raffling off a beautiful acoustic guitar. When I mentioned to my daughter how beautiful the instrument was she urged me to buy a raffle ticket, which I declined due to the fact that I didn't know how to play. Her response was "Dad, you're retired you can learn." So, a couple of days later I bought a cheap acoustic guitar. I have to admit that learning to play the guitar is every bit as challenging as advertised. But, hope springs eternal and thanks to Nate's teaching skills I am finally on the right track.
