It's a dilemma HELP.

I have said in other spots through our Community that I'm 59 years young (60 0n Dec. 8th) and 4 years ago
Sept, I received a Cancer (Prostate) diagnosis, that according to it alone had us convinced that I would surly not be doing this here and now. Not supposed to be here according to man!


Oh well, now the dilemma. My lovely girls have bought the required (bits, shout out for Bruce you know me) to complete the P-51/ They are on the slow boat from China and that's awesome because it's always a present surprise when they arrive. Then my lovely government comes and gives us a rebate from the implementation of the HST. (Harmonised Sales Tax) 4 times a year. So I HAD a plan, July HST = Corsair Speed Build Kit. Not a problem..................

Unless, one starts to consider an Epiphone Pro-1 Acoustic Wine Red.

Background..............Always wanted to play guitar, since 1963, Lessons taken 1. discipline level 0. Desire to Know how, ever increasing, actual move towards goal slow and sporadic, painfully undone.

Corsair/Guitar, feedback please.

Love you all

Brother in Christ to some. Kris:
I honestly don't know the answer to your question, but I would like to say that I really really enjoyed reading your article.
My grandmother had cancer and is just now recovering. I will pray for you. And get a video of that mustang!!!
 
Thanks for your kind words and support. I pray also for your grandmothers continued success, And I will be looking for a way to get that video. Should be interesting as it is already 173 grams. Paint and servos only.

Continued happiness as we ply the sky.
Kris.

I see no reason not to do both. As a 58 yo who has been playing guitar for a little more than a, year I can say the guitar is a worthy endeavor. It's probably the biggest part of my life now.

I missed a lot of this thread and am too lazy to read it.

But I caught a few blurbs about playing guitar and I can tell you that as someone that is self taught, the biggest thing to learn is a power chord and how to slide around and jump around with power chords.

|-------|
|-------|
|-----5-|
|-3-5-5-|
|-3-5-3-|
|-1-3---|

Basically practice something like that. Slide around and jump around with that power chord. If you're feeling super lazy, you can play it with 2 fingers instead of 3.

|---| |---|
|---| |---|
|---| |---|
|-3-| |---| (Either or sounds good with only 2 fingers)
|---| |-3-|
|-1-| |-1-|

A lot of punk and rock songs use that power chord. You'd be amazed at how much you can play only knowing that. The 2 finger approach doesn't sound as nice, but it still sounds similar to what you're trying to play.
