Hello from the great State of New Jersey, USA

Post by FMM » Fri Mar 03, 2017 10:16 pm

My name is Fred. I am a self taught guitarist that started playing as a teenager. Classic story of being drawn to playing guitar by Beatles music. Earlier, I was fascinated by the sound of Charlie Christian's electric guitar on my dad's 78's but had no idea what it was or how to do it. It just sounded cool. Still does. In my school days, I discovered the blues masters that inspired the British rock guitarists. I've been playing that finger picking style
ever since. I've also been inspired by Celtic music and especially the compositions of O'Carolyn.
While working on an arrangement that includes Blind Mary, She Beg She Mohr, Isa Lei and Neil Gow's Lament, I ran across a nice arrangement on Youtube of Gow's Lament which led me to this forum where the transcript is available. I could compile one by watching the video, but that requires time that i don't have at the present time. There are other PDF's offered that I would be interested in learning as well.
I'm looking forward to learning more about classical guitar from this forum.
Cheers, Fred

Hey Fred! Not familiar with some of the Celtic stuff you threw at us. I will check out O'Carolyn. Could you mean Turlough O'Carolan instead?
