Nate Lopez replied to Jud Hair's discussion How did you come to be a fingerstyle guitarist?? in the group Fingerstyle players
"My fingerstyle is a bit different than most. I come from playing bass for many years then eventually to guitar. Never felt right to use a pick, plus I always enjoyed hearing the complexity of classical guitar. "

Thanks for your comment, Nate! You've got some great 7 string sounds. Nice arrangements. Play on!

Thanks for your comments. I haven't dabbled in any fan fretted guitars, but have handled extended necks, and fingerboards. Rene Baarslag does an extended neck classical, and I generally can arrange with builders extended frets.
