    Greetings. I began playing the guitar when I was 11 years old. Yikes! That was 50 years ago. The first song I ever learned was "Pipeline." (Look it up on YouTube.)

    I have a Cordoba C9, Ibanez AFj85, and Fender US Strat Nitro Honey Burst. By far, the Strat has a very familiar feel to it compared to what I had growing up in L.A.

    I like classic rock (well what would you expect, it was the late 60s and early 70s when I was in a band?), jazz ala Wes Montgomery, Emily Remler, etc, and Bossa Nova in the likes of Antonio Carlos Jobim.

    I play for fun now.

    Welcome to the forum. I think you'll like it here. Lots of people on here around your (our) vintage, with similar tastes. When you get a chance check out the "Over 55 Club", too.
