  • 52 year old finally “getting” guitar!!

    When I saw Tony’s “commercial” on social media saying, “Are you middle aged, picked up a guitar over and over in your life, but never gotten very good?” he was speaking to my situation exactly. I have been working about 3 weeks on his program now, on an almost daily basis, and my fretting fingers are sliding so nicely to where they need to be I just cannot believe it. I am literally so excited when I see my fingers falling into place changing from chord to chord it’s literally like a dream come true. I am SOO PUMPED!!! I’ve always wanted to be at least decent on a guitar, and finally feel like it could be reality. Tony, I love you brother. Your brainchild, this program, is exactly what I have needed for far too long. Thank you. -SG Dietz

    Congratulations! You’re way ahead of me @sg_dietz . Didn’t even start to play guitar ’til I was 62! You’ll be zooming ahead in no time. Enjoy your journey!🎵

    Well, sg_dietz

    It only gets better. I was recently at a Shop in Buena Vista, CO and they had some custom made guitars on the wall. The clerk asked if I was a guitar player and I easily said yes. And then asked the guitar geek question about the bracing on the guitar. She immediately said, “Well let me get it down so you can play it.” She did. Then I did with confidence.. (Billy in the Lowground) That would have never happened before TAC. Keep it up.

    Wow, @sg_dietz , you got this. Keep going.

    I remember when seeing where they were going, and them landing there was so exciting and encouraging. Next, now they know where to go, so no need to watch. Like today’s lesson, those are chords that my fingers know where to go, and I don’t have to watch the fretboard any more for them to get there. Helped with speeding up, too.

    Congratulations on a huge #smallwin.
