I played a little in school, mostly just open chords (you know, those same chords that Steve encourages us NOT to play all the time!) Left it alone for years and decided a couple of years ago to really learn how to play. My hope is to be able to accompany my wife on her violin. I have worked with a local instructor and completed Steve’s Learn and Master series - although I keep going back to topics as I discover that I didn't quite get the "master" part right. I'm currently working on the Fingerstyle course. I am primarily an acoustic player but play electric on occasion.
