I am 67 years old. I love playing my guitar even if it is mostly Shadows music I play. However I am excited about this web. it's great.

Now I have 2 questions

1. Am I the oldest in gmc

2. I hope you guys are not despising age.


1. Yes!
2. Definitely not!

I think you get the prize so far, unless anyone knows different?

Hey - if I am the oldest then maybe I deserve a prize!! I love guitar masterclasss and learning a lot . The instructors are just excellent I have 3 electric guitars, a roland amp. several effects pedals and I use guitar pro for tabs.

Besides playing shadows music I also play a few numbers from eric clapton and carlos santana (who is my favourite guitarist of all time). Not bad for an old guy!!! Gmc rocks!!!

Ack! laugh.gif
How could we despise age - we are all gonna end up with larger and larger numbers to claim as our 'age'!
And guitarists are an exceptionally compassionate, wise, intellectually brilliant
and usually pretty darn gorgeous sector of humanity I have noticed -
so we truly just get better and better with the years tongue.gif
That's my story and I'm sticking to it wink.gif
Kris can we give Bill a prize - he rocks! biggrin.gif

Completely agree with you on that one!

I turned 30 this year and am so looking forward to whatever life throws at me as I get older....I just hope I'm still rocking the guitar at 67!

I think playing the guitar is like a fountain of youth of sorts. I always feel young at heart with a guitar in my hands.

Imagine a 67 year old playing Heavy Metal for beginners 3... (theres nothing wrong with it is there)?


No seriously, age has no limits, it just brings wisdom and diseases (as my dad would say).

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"
