Welcome aboard. You’re in good company.
Got ya by almost 8 years. (71 in March)
Greetings from Colorado !! 66 and still rockin'
Great to add a younger person.
You folks are unreal. This is so freaking Cool! I thought I was becoming all alone. Those boys from Liverpool were a huge influences on my own song writing. Truth coming up ........ the Missouri license plate on my 2012 Honda Accord EXV6 reads ..... LENNON. I swear to God.
My father is 91 and he still plays a little guitar, and so did Les Paul in his 90's, so drop the 'I'm really Old' Line, we won't have any.
It's done. This place is killer!
You are not old
another newb posing as a fuddy-duddy!
it's a trend.
welcome to town, young man.
I'm in your camp, 64 y.o. and pretty much the same attitude. Welcome.
weird, i'm older..... and still a bit stuck in the future! still trying to keep myself present.
You are not alone. In a little less than two yrs I hit the big 6-0.
Same age, been playing forever too, touring, studio, teach. Not saying I'm good or bad, just experienced, lotta miles with vintage guitars and amps like you. When my wife's health $ went south had to sell things off. No sweat, felt very fortunate to have have owned and played such incredible gear plus having them as assets when the chips were down. But I digress. On the road back I've had to be very judicial about gear, completely divorce myself from brand prejudice and fever. The brown Concerts and Pro gone, I've been using a 65 RI Deluxe for smaller venues and a battered Peavey Classic 50, like a Twin, for bigger gigs. They sound great. An LTD/ESP tele with SDs dropped in and (the killer) an 80s Ibanez AS200, a few choice pedals, and I have an excellent rig and sound. I agree that the more experienced you are, the more you learn to rely on simple things, dynamics and tone controls especially. Rambled on here, sorry, exhaustion is my go to excuse.
Nearly 64 here. We're not really old; we're just well-seasoned dudes hittin' our prime......
I'm not old, I'm a recycled teenager.
Picked up the guitar at 13....I'm 55.
Please, don't refer to yourself as old! I'm turning 67 in the next couple of weeks, and I still consider myself young! One of the people I bicycle with, when I mentioned a birthday coming up, thought since I mentioned it, it was one of the "big ones"--they thought I was turning 60! (I like them!!)
Age is a number
@arlum: I just turned 60 in November and gig 4X's/Month. My drummer is 65, Bass Player 64. This music stuff keeps me alive!!!!
Welcome to TGP.
That's young, in comparison to some of the steel guitar players I know here in Portland, Oregon. They play with speed, feeling, and technique that I hope to get someday.
