This is my introductory post.
I started on violin as a child, and briefly piano before discovering the guitar. I have played guitar badly for 50 years. I am basically self taught. I have a Tama classical bought in 1980, and a lovely Martin Acoustic bought this year. After a long interval my interest was rekindled by an evening of jigs and reels at the home of an American friend in Maine. My partner bought me a couple of lessons which I continued for a few months and as a result began to explore finger picking jigs and reels. I then discovered Turlough O'Carolan's music which is what I am working away at now. Along with the music came the very belated discovery of DADGAD, DGDGBD tuning etc opening up a whole new world of rich sound. I would love to meet some like minded musicians locally.
One problem now is that my much loved Tama guitar seems to have lost it's voice particularly on the top strings after being restrung and 'serviced' locally. I am not sure what strings were used. Any views on best nylon strings for mellow old guitars?
