It's not often you find someone who is will to put themselves out there in front of the world and tell you from a personal perspective their trials and tribulations of learning the guitar from scratch. I have and will find interesting the blog Rose Garden Music http://rosegardenmusic.blogspot.com/ The blog witten by "The Old Man" and will be the story of a 40 something married man with five daughters, that is picking up and learning the guitar for the first time. There are only 2 posts so far but The Old Man just started this blog a couple days ago. The first post is about him and his decision to to play the guitar. The second was deciding what guitar and learning system (The Rock House Method) it is that he will use.
I will be keeping track of The Old Mans progress and as a 40 plus guitar player myself will be rooting for him. Stop by his blog and show The Old Man some love.
