Thanks for a great intro, John. Welcome!
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.
Adding your location to your profile is a nice touch. Many of us have made new friends from doing just that.
Again, welcome to Delcamp!
