    Hello, from Ft. Myers, Florida. I'm a 60 year old somewhat new guitar player. I just got the urge to learn about 1 1/2 years ago so I bought myself an acoustic guitar and started teaching myself.

    I am having a blast and really enjoy it. I can actually now hit some barre chords once in a while..;-)

    I will try to participate in the forum more than I have in the past. I've kind of read a lot but never have yet joined in.

    Hey butch, Welcome to the Gear Page!

    Never to late to start. One of the best drummers I knew was older than you when he started.
    Playing is the most fun I've ever had.

    Any plans for an electric in the future?

    Well, actually I have two electrics. I am somewhat embarassed to say. Part of me says that I should be a better guitar player before I start buying more guitars but I wanted an electric to kind of "rock out". So needless to say I now know what you guys/gals mean when you refer to the "gas" (guitar acquisition syndrome) The other part of me wins over when I see a guitar that just looks "purty"....

    Also, the opening lick of "crazy on you" just sounds better through a turned up amp rather than my acoustic..........................;-)
