  1. As an old guy who is 50 years old, I finally decided on a hobby and it's the guitar. I ordered the cheapest electric guitar beginner set on Amazon. If I stick with this consistently for 6 months, I will invest in good equipment. Well, it's been 9 months, I spend an hour each day; 5 days a week practicing guitar. Now, I'm in the process of upgrading to a semi-hollow or hollow body guitar. I admit that I'm an incredibly slow learner and youtube.com guitar lessons drive me nuts. I started a subscription to guitartricks.com and the introductory lessons are really slow; to my liking. Since I have a million questions about equipment, I'll hold off because there are other areas to post those questions. But, I'd like to network with other beginner guitarists (less than 6 months experience) in the Washington D.C. metro area (Rockville, MD). If anybody can give advice on how to meet other beginner guitarists, then I welcome your advice. My girlfriend hates going to Guitar Center with me and doesn't practice her acoustic guitar so it would be nice to meet others with similar interests. Thanks in advance for your feedback. Wish me luck. popster
