    I'm a little embarrassed to say that I'm currently on my third time trying to learn to play guitar. I tried forty or so years ago, learned first position chords and played and sang Jimmy Buffett songs. Didn't stick with it, for more than a year. Got into a job, put my nose firmly on the grindstone for twenty years before I thought I should pick up the guitar again. Bought my first electric and a small Crate practice amp. Started taking lessons - Scales, scales, and more scales. Never learned a song. Stuck with it again for maybe two years. Gear sat in the closet for another twenty years. About six months ago, my niece's son whom we used to baby sit, called me up one day and told me he had some toys to show me. He came over with two guitars, an amp and a few peddles. That lit the fire again and so I'm working on scales again. This time I truly believe I'm on the right track. Paid for a package of on line training / lessons. I'm finally on the right path to learn what I couldn't put together on my own. The last time I tried I was being taught scales but they were only in boxes. This time the scales are opening the way to the entire fretboard. Right now I have more gear than ability. That's going to change.
