Hello New here on the forum. I'm 55 and have teaching myself how to play for a couple of months now and have my first lesson scheduled in a couple of days. I'm 55 and having a hard time getting the fingers on my left hand to cooperate. My wife bought me a Pyle Stratocaster starter kit for Christmas years ago but I gave up after a few days. Took a couple lessons about a year ago and gave up again. When I started again a few months ago I figured it would be easier if I had a nice guitar. A friend of mine was thinning the herd and posted his '72 Custom Reissue for sale and I fell in love. Being a huge fan of Keith Richards, Bruce Springsteen, and that Telecaster sound it seemed like a no brainer. I know it takes practice, lots of practice, I pick her up every day and I'm not giving up this time, but I'm wondering if it would be any easier with a modern C neck and 12" radius vs the 7.5 radius on my '72. Thanks in advance to everyone who shares their knowledge!
