When I was 14, my Dad bought me the Ludwig drum set you see here.
Tomorrow, I turn 55, so I’ve been playing my drums for quite a while.
Last October, I started taking guitar lessons from Steve Owens, a guitar teacher in San Antonio, who is also in a band called, The Mo-dels. Steve has been teaching me the basics and I have been slowly buying a few guitars, which are shown here.
Because of the home theater set up, I now play my drums (and
sometimes my guitars) with music videos that I buy, or I watch, listen
and participate by playing along with rock concerts on HDNet via AT&T’s U-verse.
I am also starting to tune into YouTube on my big screen through AppleTV and checking out free on-line guitar lessons such as this one which teacher the basics of chords and this one which teaches you how to play like Jimi Hendrix. (are you experienced?)
