Greetings from Nashville

Post by sprosee014 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 7:09 pm

Where we have some music. I am soon retiring from 30 plus years of semi-public exposure as a host of classical music on Nashville Public Radio, and am looking forward to having more time to indulge myself in the sounds of my guitars. I am mostly self-taught, and bring my musical sensibilities from earlier years as a singer. It's time to work on mechanics, so I will be more likely to be able to actually bring the music I hear in my head out of my guitars. I've had the great pleasure of getting to know many of the fine players and teachers here in Nashville and surrounds, and very much value those connections. No one works in a silent room for decades without being an introvert, so public exposure on a forum is not my natural habitat, to say the least, but I'll be in danger of being in a room alone with my guitars if I don't make the effort, so, I hope joining in will enhance my and my fellow members musical lives.

Cheers,

Welcome to Delcamp!

Congrats on your upcoming retirement!

If you haven't already, please take a moment to read this page for a good rundown on how the forum works, rules, history, etc. You have found a great source of classical guitar knowledge, as we have a wide assortment of members, from beginners to performing artists, with a number of fine teachers, historians, and luthiers too. So feel free to ask any questions you might have, but consider using the search function first, as many topics have already been discussed at length.

If you participate in other online forums, you might notice that things can get pretty heated at times. Delcamp takes great strides to avoid that. Here is what Mssr. Delcamp himself has to offer on that.

It is important to note that there is a requirement to post an average of once a month. Members not meeting this standard may have their memberships terminated.

Adding your location to your profile is a nice touch. Many of us have made new friends from doing just that.

Again, welcome to the forum!

Regards,
