I am from the 60's as well and composed my own during college and a few years after. I quit playing for a many years but never sold my '66 Guild Starfire III. A couple of years ago I moved to Conyers, GA and went to a local pub that had open-mike nights and picked the guitar up again. Rusty as the devil but since getting a little better. I bought an amp (Line 6 Spider II)--- not tube but good enough for me.
I want to record a few songs for posterity but have not determined I can do it on the computer without first investing in costly software. Hopefully this forum will lead me in the right direction.
