new old guy

Hi folks, I'm Tom Buchanan,77 yrs young,still pickin', though the fast ones
like Sugarfoot Rag are a little slower these days,....lurked around a few forums, but couldn't understand half of what they were saying-didn't
recognize the pickers they talked about either.
I noticed there are some fellers on here closer to my age, so we got
that in common, anyway.Looking forward to some good stories and warm
conversations.....ps..I'm an Okie, by the way.

Welcome Tom, I am sure you will fit right in
With music age is not a bad factor. I am almost 69, good people here.

Hi Tom, not sure what an 'Okie' is, but welcome to this place. Nice to see someone older than me

Welcome to Gibson-Talk, Tom! Help yourself to a cold one from the fridge.
