Love the story, Little Owl. Welcome aboard!!
Yes, I think for all of us that are not-quite-teens anymore that we are learning a lot. I signed up earlier this week myself and have finding all kinds of gaps in my knowledge that, so far, Lisa has addressed in the Beginners lessons.
Now I would not ever have anyone bear the burden of trying to listen to me sing, but I have no problem letting my neighbors hear the amplifier. LOL. (I am a good neighbor and wear my headphones religiously.)
Anyway, welcome aboard. It's great that we have several of us in the not-quite-teen generation on here learning. Makes it that much more enjoyable for me to know that I am learning with others near my own generation who enjoy this amazing instrument we call "guitar".
