Never Too Old to Learn Guitar

Hi, so I pulled a 30 year old Yamaha acoustic from my basement that has never been played. I've played the flute for 45 years so I know how to read music, and I've been teaching myself via "Alfred's Basic Guitar Method." I've tuned the guitar, but my b string and especially the e string are very "twangy." Is that (me) or is that the string? The lower e, a, d and g sound fine. Thanks a lot! Donna


Hi, Donna--

I am surprised that ANY of the strings sound good after 30 years in the basement! Try putting on a brand new set of strings and the sound will most likely improve immensely.

And best wishes for your new musical pursuit!
