Well, not exactly.  I didn't even know how to tune it so when I plugged in and struck a few notes the result was horrific.
" Boy, you need lessons ! "   my parents said.

A teacher was found who lived nearby.  I told him I wanted to play songs of the rock group KISS.
" Oh yeah, I know them, " he said.  Frankly, I doubted it.  He was about 75 years old and was known as "Fiddlin' Pete", as he often played a fiddle while performing.

The first thing I learned was that my cheap guitar was no good.  The strings were too high over the neck, almost like a Koto.   I used some money I'd saved and bought a nice Gibson on sale.  OK, ready to rock !                                       (G.K)
