    That sure went by fast! I began the year with knowledge of music theory but was brand new to guitar; everything about it felt foreign. By mid-summer a local jam group welcomed me to join and the times we spent strumming outdoors definitely gave a boost to my confidence and skill development. I can say it was a shock and a wonderful surprise to be highlighted on a monthly workshop early on and later in the Acoustic Tuesday Holler. The learning levels set out by TAC have really been my guide over the year. I’ve been faithful to setting aside 10 minutes a day for skill development followed by learning new pieces from the song vault (now discontinued) and committing pieces to memory. There are so many things I plan to tackle this year. I really really want to figure out soloing, to sing with confidence while I play (no need for a perfect voice, right) and to find more ways to play and learn with others. I have come to believe that learning guitar will have a benefit similar to learning a new language and will reap rewards for my ageing brain:)

    Congrats! Just finished the first year myself. I feel the same way about the mental benefits as we age. It definitely makes life more interesting and fun. Glad you are going on and enjoying the guitar.

    Thanks Phil. Congrats to you too. I’m noticing a big shift in how I think about my learning and how I dedicate my time to practice and learning. I’m writing things down (at last) and making sure I’m making time for fingerpicking things I’m figuring out on my own. Also, spending longer on the challenges. Are you doing any new or different things?

    “I really really want to … sing with confidence while I play (no need for a perfect voice, right) …”

    No, there’s no need for a peferct voice, but in my case, I depend on a strong (but far from perfect l) voice to cover up some of my weakness playing the guitar! Congrats on the first of many happy years with TAC.
