. . . . . which is Algonquin for "the good land.
I'm more of a woodwind person but I have picked up this stringed wooden contraption and I'm intruiged by it!
I must say, the ability to play bass lines with the melody is very, very cool. Total beginner here, this will be an interesting experiment.

Anyway, I will be lurking here for the incredible amount of information available to a new picker.

Welcome to Delcamp!

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,

Welcome!

I spent 4 years in Milwaukee in the late 60's at Marquette. I really miss the January wind tunnel called Wisconsin Avenue.
