I'm an acoustic finger picker, mainly. In the John Fahey, travis picking style. After a few years of uninspired technical drills on an electric guitar I set that aside and never picked it up again, not after I started digging into Fahey's music. And man does it go deep. It didn't take me long to become completely obsessed with the great american primitivists, Sir Richard Bishop, Robbie Basho and of course the great kloonaklaster himself JF. I could never really play Fahey's stuff though. Well, I tried.
So I played Fahey pieces almost exclusively for about two years, although I could never scratch the surface of what he was doing. Thankfully, I stumbled on Mario Parodi. Finally, a real musician! And a new obsession. Now I have a new teacher, Parodi of course, and a new guitar. I should probably mention I haven't had a formal music tutor in years. Anyway, I got a Takamine c132s based upon the recommendations of the advice corner of this lovely forum, and I haven't put it down since. I'm working Claire de Lune, Arabesque, Parodi's Preludio no.1 (which, if you haven't heard, is pure joy) and his Gavotte arrangement. My music taste is really too wide to go into, although I will say I have a particular love for world music of all kinds. And that's me
