Alan always gave encouragement to newbies to record, to explore and always helped in the kindest way possible. I would have never posted a recording on the forum but for his encouragement. He was a gentle, kind person.
We were able to talk by Skype a few times when I was recovering from surgery and I am glad I had the opportunity to talk with him in real time and not just in text form.
I will miss him greatly and hope that he truly rests in peace.
My deepest extended sympathies to his family and his friends....and also to a wonderful, special person who brightened his day with her conversations and presence.
When the sun shines, bask.
Classical Guitar forever!
