    Default Older, Retired, and Still Learning

    The title says it all. Many years ago I learned a little guitar (beginner), a little more piano (intermediate/advanced), and now am starting to learn this great little instrument. I think I already have a case of UAS.
    This is a great forum and look forward to being a part of it.

    Welcome! People on the site are really nice and give good info. For me it helped to tune out some of the people who will discuss music theory in depth right off the bat (though I'd love to learn it). It was a little intimidating at first.
    Go read the beginners forum. Great links to things and info.
    Good luck!

    Welcome to UU. I Hope you enjoy this place. I've been hanging around here for at least 6 years, and I spend way more time here than on Facebook!
