New member introduction
« on: October 13, 2015, 10:44:44 AM »
Hi all, Just decided to pick up my old guitar and start attempting to learn for the umpteenth time. I got a decent but slightly battle scarred D10 M/ CBL from a friend about 10 years ago and he only asked $30 for it at the time. It seems to be a nice guitar and plays well when I give it a shot for more than a few minutes. I know basic chords (G, C, D, A, Em and a few others) that those seem to be my easy to go to chords when I want to screw around. I suck at strumming as in I have one strum pattern that no matter how much I seem to try I naturally go to so everything I strum sounds the same. Reading music is not a strong suit for me but I'm trying- again! Interestingly, I've discovered the CBL stands for Carribean Blue on these guitars but mine is clearly a Green guitar. Oh well, back to attempting to play.

Welcome to the Washie forum.  A D10 for $30 is a great deal so good on ya for that.  Stick with the guitar.  Don't get discouraged due to a lack of progress.  Sometimes you will even take a few steps back.  All part of the learning process, which by the way goes on forever.

Thanks, I've been putting some time in before work with the guitar each day this week and I'm glad to see my chord changes coming back to me. Right now though I'm working with the book again. Although this is a new book and has a cd with it that I can play along with while practicing which has been a great way to keep me interested in practicing. Maybe this time I'll actually get through an entire book while practicing. I'm sure if I do I will see great results as I've already seen improvement from just sticking to the book this last week.

Hey, brother, just keep at it.  If you can find someone to play with that's a great way to stay motivated and pick up some new licks.  Just keep lovin' it.
