How did you start playing guitar? You seem to have taken on an American Country style...Who is your mentor?
I actually only started playing the guitar about 7 years ago - and my only goal was to turn up Beatles songs and play along with them! After the wore out the Beatles albums, I moved to Simon and Garfunkel and then Bob Dylan...just playing along day and night.
I never had formal lessons or anything, so I feel that I still have a lot of improving to do - but it's good to have something to work toward!
