Episode 1: The journey of learning guitar in your 40s

(Last Updated On: November 7, 2019)


Learning guitar is only possible at a young age ?

Do you want to learn guitar to make music and have fun but think you’re past the young age ?

Can’t do it anymore, right ? Wrong.

I switched from drums to guitar at the age of 40.

I’m no guitar teacher, but  I am an engineer who loves music and an engineering approach to learning. 

In this episode I will talk about the methods I used, the mistakes I made, and what are the top aspects of learning guitar when you are a little bit older.

I will discuss how technology can help, and when it is too much.

The information here I believe is valid for any age.
