Profile Information

Which one of the following describes your involvement in music? (Check all that apply)
Amateur or recreational musician
How many years have you been playing guitar?
More than 30 years
Which of these instruments do you own or play?
Flattop steel-string acoustic guitar
The make and model of your guitar(s) and/or other instruments and gear.
I have a guitar that is a culmination of 10 years of upgrading, and have now owned it for about 10 years. It is not the most expensive guitar but it sounds good to me and it has sort of adopted me. I would no sooner trade it than I would trade my dog, or one of my kids. I have come to an understanding that instruments are fickle partners and require time and effort to fully evolve a relationship. I also believe that certain guitars have songs in them, and they will share these songs with you if you have the patience to wait for them.
What type of music do you like to play?
I like to play fingerstyle and fingerpicking music. I enjoy trying to work out old rock tunes in fingerstyle. right now I am working on brown eyed girl, friend of the devil, and what child is this? I like Acoustic guitar 's music and work on those songs. In alternate tuning I'm learning Paul Brady songs from his dvd, and Patty Larkin. occasionally.
Do you subscribe to or regularly read Acoustic Guitar?
I subscribe
Hello and thanks to Dan and 'Acoustic Guitar'. Hope to be using this forum to continue this mad descent into the underpinnings of musicianship!
Cheers! Bill

I will have to check those out. I lost a lot of their material I had on my computer last time I formatted it and my dad is the one that owns the discs (guess that means I have him to blame when people look at my iPod and call me old, right? Just kidding..) next time I am at their place I will have to go looking and I will keep them in mind.


P.S. Your the first person from michigan I have seen here other than my self. Would you go to my page and put in your zip code on the map there so we can represent our selves? It's a pretty cool app, fun to see where your friends on here are from. I encourage add of it to others profiles too.
