Hi,to everyone,I live in Ireland and i am a retired BT employee. During the sixties i played guitar in various Irish Showbands which were very popular at that time.When i got married i decided to give it up and i did for about 15 years.I then bought a classical guitar and started to teach myself with the Fredrick Noad books 1,2. A few years down the line i had to have a operations on my right hand which restricted my right hand technique.I play fingerpicking guitar and some jazz guitar and play the classical guitar but stick mainly to the easier pieces and traditional irish music. I find for me its the best way to relax and i enjoy it.Tony
