Beginner in PDX

Post by mendylady » Sun Jan 13, 2019 6:58 pm

Hello! I am a forty-something raw beginner near Portland, Oregon, USA. I've always been drawn to classical guitar, and was ecstatic when a friend pointed me at this forum a year and a half or so ago. My beloved partner bought me a guitar for my birthday a few months later, and.. one of my real-life struggles is chronic depression, and it can be very difficult for me to get started on projects like learning an instrument on my own recognizance. I am determined that I will do it this year, tho!

Excited to meet you all and get started, K8
