Sorry, i think that might go to me as I just turned 48 on October 2. Believe me it's a prize I'd gladly give up to someone who is older, lol.

It sure is great to have members of all ages here at GMC :]

I'm 18 myself, but in some strange way I'm actually looking forward to get older and more experienced with life ;]

I'm 37. I'm glad to see that the number of GMC members who are 40+ seems to be a bit higher than I would have thought. Makes me feel better smile.gif

You can include me in the 40+ bracket smile.gif Life doesn't stop on your 20th birthday, it gets better and better. Different things suck, but on balance, I'd rather be 40 than 20. Ideally I'd like to be 40 with the body of a 20 year old though.
Pavel
Did i mention i am 20?? biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif Kidding! smile.gif The age range at GMC is unbelievable! smile.gif

+1 to that. It's nice to know that GMC reflects such a wide cross-section of people. Different ages, attitudes, etc. It makes the site (and especially the forum) a lot more interesting.

You win the prize. that is one I'd rather not be winning just yet, lol!!!

Speaking of prizes, I'm entered in a contest to win as first prize a rare 2002 race ready Corvette (worth $35,000) and as second prize a brand new Harley Davidson V-Rod (worth $13,000). I'd rather win the second prize, that V-Rod is a sweet looking ride.

44 here and I to would like to be 40 with the body of a 20 year old......waiting for me upstairs in something skimpy. So that's kind of the same thing.
SLASH91
I'm 16. Alot of you guys are older than I imagined tongue.gif
JVM
17 myself smile.gif I do remember some 60+ year old signing up as well, like Robin said.
fkalich
are we supposed to give our age in people years, or in dog years?

a lady once told me, never lie about your age, much better for them to say "he/she looks great for XX years!", rather than "boy, he/she looks like total crap for YY years".

When I was an undergrad, there was this student from Germany names Klaus. Half the time when you asked him anything he would reply "none of your business". I tried that recently when my brother asked me something. He was shocked, but it felt good. I think Klaus was on to something.

Now now Hemlock - you're not supposed to lie about your age until after your 21st tongue.gif

On fkalich's bit about lying and the resonse: for many years my mother would add about 10 years to her actual age when asked just so that people would say, "my but you look really good for someone aged YY".

One thing about age - there's a physical age and also an attitude towards life. Some people who are, say, 72 can come across as ancient whilst others come across as youthful. Often the latter seem to have much more of a passion for life and are passionate about something. One of the big pluses about playing the guitar is it means we all have a passion in our lives for music and for the guitar - has to be a big plus as we get older.

Cheers,
Tony

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.

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
SDMF75
Whats the prize gonna be? A free 3 months for lifelong rocking?! laugh.gif
Kristofer Dahl
It's fantastic to see we have such a wide age span! 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.
