Hello,

Beginner? OK, I'm a beginner here. I'm 58 and I've been playing guitar for 40 years.

One would think that I was good. Well, I was once better. I'm OK, I guess. I could play rhythm guitar with anyone, but I'm 5'2" tall. I don't know what that is in the rational world, but in this country, itís short. My fingers are well proportioned to the rest of my body and, for me, at least, that dictated stuff like finger picking and playing impressive and even not so impressive licks.

So, here I am in the Beginners Forum because I think Iím beginning my membership.

This seems like a great place to talk music and if thereís anything that takes my mind away from social justice/injustice, war and peace and the dumbing down of much of the industrialized word, especially this country, itís talking and making music.

I just glanced at some of the threads and I see that youth has been injected in abundance here and thatís outstanding.

My mission, should I choose to accept, is to give us ďboomersĒ something else to listen to that we could like as much as we liked whatís played on ďclassic rock ní rollĒ radio Ė when it was new!

There was some talk recently about the Rock Ní Roll Hall of Fame and how, by the time someoneís inducted, their music is almost painful to listen to. Itís either difficult to listen to because itís been played so often over and over and over again or because itís attached to the style of its day.

I donít know about all that. I hope that I learn something here. Really learn, you know?

Iím an old guy, but Iím going to play music until the day arrives when I can no longer do so. How longer after Iíve died that will be, Iím not sure. But here I am, ready to talk, listen and learn.

To friendship,
Michael

About the signature. It assumes and/or presumes nothing. I usually attach a quote and a link to one of my songs to it, but Iím not going to burst in here like I own the place, since I just found the place.

Iíve been using the signature for years. Itís a salute, thatís all. And in this world at this time when violence seems to be the drug of choice for many societies, including much of the society that occupies this country, saluting friendship, in any degree and at any level, is saluting the place where most sane people really want to be.

By the way, do they let people as old as I am in here?

Yeah no worries about age. I'm 54 and they haven't told me to S*D off yet (mind you, that's probably because they're just well mannered)!Enjoy!

To deefa and MichaelBN: You're too old! Sod off! We don't want you here!
That was a big joke by the way - welcome onboard Michael, great to have you here. You sound like someone who is quite philosophical and considerate about the world, we could always do with more like that!

Take it easy,

Afro

Age here doesn't matter one bit. If anything, being older is probably a good thing. Welcome to the forum.

OK, you have older people here. Good.

Another question.

Do you have any Americans? Should I say I'm Canadian as Eddie Izzard suggests?

Whoops, I just read replies from three. Did you guys say you were Canadians?

So, where do I go next and why? And remember, mind your manners when you reply.

By the way, are the threads HTML or vBB friendly?

Oh, by the way dash two. Thanks. You're all very cool so far.
