Well, I'll keep it short. I'm new here and new at guitar. I've attempted it several times in the past but I seem to be a late bloomer. I mean I lost 60 pounds and got into the best shape of my life at 44. Now at 48 I've been practicing 2-3 hours per day for the past 6 months using Troy Stetinas books. It's taken me this long just to digest about 2 thirds of his Metal Lead Primer and Metal Rythm Vol 1books, and I'm learning my first song The Four Horsemen by Metallica. (I can play it slowed down about 30%) Everything seems like a crawl right now and tests my patience at times but I want this so bad I can taste it. I'll be needing encouragement now and then I'm sure.
