My name is Dawn. I've been playing for about 50 years. I have just gotten stuck and feel I should be much better than I am...lol. So since I recently retired, I gave myself a gift of online lessons! Excited to jump on this journey with all of you!

Welcome to GB Dawn!  Like you, I recently retired and now have time to play more guitar.  I'm struggling with the left hand pain as well, attempting to do the 5 fret stretches.

I'm putting the Fenders away for now and using my Gretsch Duo Jet that has a shorter scale neck.  It is a full inch less.from nut to bridge than the Fenders and seems to be helping.  I guess we will have to do some hand exercises and proceed with caution.

Good Luck and have fun!
