Dream come true.
« on: September 08, 2008, 08:33:18 PM »
Hello, Waiting to post until my D10S arrived. Have played a few instraments over my 53yrs. but always wanted to learn the acoustic so I finnally took the plunge and bought one from RGG. Got a great deal and a great looking and sounding guitar. Going to take a few leasons first to get started right until I learn more about playing and improvements to the guitar. Already have read all forum post so I feel I know some of you already and looking forward to your input because I tend to ask before I go wrong. Thanks!! Truk.

Truk, welcome to the forum. I know you'll enjoy the D10 and playing it. You've picked the best way to start by taking a few lessons. Just enjoy the heck out of your guitar.

Hey, TRUK, welcome to the forum from YerDugliness [^] !  Stick around, feel free to ask questions, you'll find all the help you need in fulfilling this dream of yours.

Nice to hear that a newbie has taken time to familiarize him/herself with the forum before posting [^] --there's always room for more....

Enjoy that D10S.  A couple of fellow forum members with whom I occasionally jam have them, they are fine sounding and playing guits and with a few inexpensive upgrades they can be good enough to become a lifelong companion.

Hey Truk,
Welcome to the forum.  Congrats on the new D10S.

Have at those lessons.  And don't even think about just admiring your new washie.  [:D]  Play the heck out of her.

So glad to hear from someone else that waited until 50-something to start the guitar. I've been at it a few months now and am really disappointed with myself for waiting so long. Good luck and you'll get a lot of good information (with good wit more often than not) around this site.

How right Dugly is.  And the upgrades are indeed quite inexpensive.

A saddle of bone or ivory is only $15-30, depending on which critter you choose to have it made out of.

Your D10 will match the sound of many guitars costing two and three times its price.

Thanks Everyone, Didn't expect such a warm welcome! Toaster told me you were a great group as I derived from reading all those post. I'll keep up on progress reports. I bought a song on sheet music that my wife loves and had to try the chords and it was to hard to reach the proper strings, so I'll keep that one for later. I went on line last night to find something for a beginner and was quite happy with what I learned. Don't want to do to much until my lessons so I don't pick up any bad habits. Maybe a few years down the road I can call my bad habits- My style- LOL. Thanks Again for the warm welcome.
