Hi, welcome. I find it interesting that there is such a resurgence of interest in playing when people hit a certain age. I suppose it is a combination of time available and mid-life crisis.

Welcome.
Try to have a guitar a open D tuning (dadf#ad). It's also a great tuning.

Not me, I just picked it from the Doc's list as an approximation!

I only really started playing in my late 40's, so haven't got anything to fall back on. But like you I'm putting together a list of songs that I(try) and play. I am great at getting started, but tend to get about halfway through a song, then move on. Taking lessons has helped, Each week we focus on a song and work through it, then start the next week off by playing start to finish, before moving on to something new.

I really must do more of my theory 'homework' as well. I keep getting caught by things like " OK, we've done that in A, now move it to E".
or "right, now play that atanother position on the neck". Just as well there are no exams on this course!

I must consolidtae what I can play, and learn to sing too!
