Hell, Tony here.

I have been a guitar player for 45 years mostly electric lead, rhythm and bass guitar. Played on the road for 20 years earning a living in bars, halls, dances, weddings, elks, moose lodges outdoor fairs. and so on.
I have played everyday that I can recall. I have a very large guitar collection and have helped out on American pickers as well as hard core pawn for guitar advise. I love everything guitar.

While on a recent trip to Florida I saw a guy playing the most incredible Flamenco guitar. I was hooked. I stood and listened to every song and every note. When he was done I purchased all of his CD's.

Never listening to this type of music in depth. When returning home I found a whole world of fantastic music. While most of my years have been spent playing and listing to guys like Randy Rhodes, Steve Via, Yngwie Malmsteen, And the likes of rock guitar gods. I have found new gods in the gypsy kings,
Poco de Lucia, and Andre Segovia.

Although this style is very new to me ( I have been playing nylon for 10 weeks now) I have been obsessed by it.
I have already bought 10 nylon stringed guitars. That I have been playing hours a day.

From years of playing my left hand works fine BUT my right hand needs quite a lot of work.
So I have been stalking this site for quite some time and decided to join.
Hopefully I will learn a thing or two.

Anyway that's my introduction. Hope it was fun to read. Peace and God bless.
