Hello from Tucson

Post by smwiele » Thu Feb 07, 2019 1:33 am

I’ve enjoyed playing the guitar off and on over the past 50 years or so. Most of that time has been with the classical guitar. Over the past dozen years I’ve also taken up the steel string guitar, adapting my crude classical form to steel-string fingerstyle. I’ve gotten back to classical guitar the past year.

I also build guitars as a hobby, completing number 27 recently. They’ve mostly been steel string, but I started with classicals and have added a few classicals recently. Coaxing a good tone and response from a classical guitar is a challenge.

The amount of material available on the internet continues to amaze me. I’m looking forward to taking advantage of the vast resources here.
