I started playing the guitar when I was 13 or 14 years old. I've been attending guitar lessons twice a week with a guitarist of a popular Lithuanian pop band. One I moved to the UK I left the classes behind and didn't pick the guitar up again for 7 or 8 years until one day James's cousin gave a really old Tanglewood Guitar to us saying it belonged to James when he was a kid! It must have been about 15 years old!
So now that I have a little more time on my smallholding, I have been playing, practising, strumming and enjoying the guitar again. It's been nearly 18 months and I even started teaching one of my neighbours the basics that I knew!
I have no musical talent whatsoever, but get lots of enjoyment and fun out of it and that's all that matters!
