There's a first time for everything!

I'm new to this, (in case you hadn't guessed) and don't know if I'm even introducing myself in the right place? Or in the right way? 

I'm Chris (aka, Boomer65), I'm 65, and wanting to learn to play my guitar the right way, but enjoy and have fun doing it. Hopefully, I've picked the right course, and with help from others here, and the teachers, I will get there, eventually? 

Best of luck everyone.

Tailgating on your post - I'm 70, and trying to learn guitar for the third time.  My hope/plan is that this time, since I am retired now, I won't let work be my excuse for not practicing.  The downside to that is that aging has somewhat cramped my fretting movements, if you can relate to that.  In particular, barre chords, which were always difficult.  I have a great guitar, a Martin 000-18, whose sound absolutely speaks to me.  The challenge now is to be worthy of it.

My preference is for what I'll call "pretty music" - "Norwegian Wood", "California Dreamin'", "Mary, Did You Know?"  Check out the video linked at  https://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtd.asp?ppn=MN0198439 to find one of my long-term guitar playing goals.

Thanks guys, I am having fun! 

I have a similar problem to you AV8R, arthritis in my hands is giving me problems with fretting too. But my problem is stretching up and down the frets, it is REALLY difficult. But I'm going to take it steady, and keep trying 'till I get the stretch or my fingers snap off! 

See you later my friends.
