Tony Cook (Street Articles Author)

My name is Tony and I am 45 years old. For as long as I can remember I have loved music, especially Rock music.

Back in the day (the 80s) when I was growing up I always loved to listen to bands like Heart, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Journey, Fleetwood Mac and as I got older my tastes deepened into AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Floyd etc.

Throughout all that the one instrument I have always wanted to play, but never got round to was the Guitar.

In December 2013 I started to self teach using Youtube and other online video sites and guess what? I loved it.

I think you are never too old and so with that in mind I decided to make a website that incorporates all of the knowledge I have gained so far and I will be adding to on a very regular basis.

Money is tight for everyone so I will be showing you the best ways to get started and where to get great gear for small change!

My articles will be essentially telling what I did and how I did it with regular updates...I hope you find them interesting.
