Yeah, I think it is too late...not! I'm 52 and still learning. Be patient and let these guys teach you. You are lucky to have an outlet like this to help. I never had anything like this when I started. Hell, there weren't even home computers back when I started! Give your fingers a week, and they'll be tough enough. Good luck!

48 here OldManPete. Yeah, if GMC and the interenet had been around the first time I tried the guitar, I can't imagine where I'd be now. Last night I was amazing myself, LOL laugh.gif, at how far I've come in just a few weeks here. You came to the right place. You'll start getting some tough littles pads on your fingers shortly. wink.gif


Live well, and live often!

Hello GMC, i´m a 40 year old guy from sweden who just bought a guitar and amplifier and i signed up to get some help and inspiration during my quest to learn to play that beautiful 6 string.. I am totally clueless when it comes to guitars, chords and scales, but i really love the electric guitar as a instrument and i really want to learn to play it.

My favourite guitarists include Gary Moore (he was my first guitar-hero) Yngwie Malmsteen, Jeff Waters, George Lynch, Dave Mustaine (really underrated guitarist/writer) and Eddie Van Halen.

Now you know roughly what kind of rockmusic i am inspired by, i am not aiming to be as good as the above mentioned ones, but i am going to try to become a descent rhythmguitar player that can write some own stuff.

See you all on the forums and prepare yourself for many questions smile.gif

Welcome mate!
I'd say mustaine is more overrated than underrated though tongue.gif
