38 years. Found an old guitar in a closet on the back porch with one string on it. It belonged to my brother but he wasn’t playing it so I started playing bass parts on the one string. Later on got my own guitar with 6 strings on it. Feel in love with the Beatles, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King
