Hi, let me introduce myself. I live up in the English lakes. I first started playing the guitar in 1958 after my attempts with the violin caused too much pain for our dog!
I stopped playing the guitar in the late 90's when I started to play the lute and cut all my fingernails down for those instruments..I gravitated to the Baroque lute and still enjoy playing Weiss and Bach and some of the later baroque composers.
I have only recently come back to the guitar, finding that I can play without nails, and I am enjoying it a lot.
I have a Ramirez !a especial which I play with low tension strings at 430Hz. My interests are eclectic but I am enjoying the Brazilian Masters and the Choro! I found my way back in to the guitar with some of Peter Nuttall's compositions and, later, with Francis Kleynjans.
But that is enough about me
I hope to meet some others with similar interests, especially those playing without nails.
