I am obviously new here.
I started playing guitar when I was about 11 years old and have been playing since with a few pauses in between, the longest one being almost a year.
I am a classical guitarist but in the recent months I have also been trying to learn how to solo, involve some music theory and I sometimes even try to write music.
I am 23 years old so that means I have been playing for around 12 years (excluding the pauses).
I took lessons for about 7 years straight and stopped right after finishing high school, since then I am just practicing by myself.
When I was even younger than the age of 11, I took a few piano lessons (if that counts as an instrument I picked before guitar ).
Looking forward to learning and maybe igniting new passions in this forum!
