    Welcome. I have a friend, just a few years younger than you, and she is an incredible singer and guitarist. Music keeps us young at heart.

    Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention that my friends voice sounds like a combination of Judy Collins and A young Jennifer Warner’s. There was a video in one of the forums threads that showed a guy of 60’s maybe 70, shredding on electric guitar. I wish I could remember the title of the thread. Perhaps someone out there will remember and post a link to it. That guy is my hero.
