Just been helping a pal start from scratch. He's 53. He played a tiny bit as a teenager and can just hold down a G chord! He's sorted with a Squier Bullet Strat and the new Yammie THR10... along with the Fender lessons that come with new guitars. He's delighted! His ambitions extend to "leaning some Floyd tracks and being able to play along to them". Go, Tiger! Know anyone else taking it up in their '50s or '60s?
