Hi everyone.

I came to find this group because I was trying to find the history of the quote attributed to Beethoven about miniature orchestra. I am a fiction writer and guitarist. I am researching guitar related information for a project.

Well, when I landed on the forum page where members here were chiming in on I was blown away by the real devotion to guitar musicology. So I naturally had to join.

I am mostly self-taught over the decades, and have a had an off and on again relationship for many reasons. For a time I did study with John Marlowe in Washington, D.C. and thats when I learned a lot about playing though I had already started playing finger-style acoustic. But I also had a strong folk, blues and country rock influence over the years so I did coffee houses, jammed with bands, the usual stuff. I studied Celtic guitar with the guitarist from The House band, and then jazz with an ensemble. I say I am a guitarist but Im not really. I suspect many of you are in fact real guitarists. I am somewhere between beginner and intermediate.

I have seen John Williams, Christopher Parkening, and Sharon Isben in concert. I've seen and met Jim Hall and Stanley Jordan, and also saw Pat Metheny and Larry Coryell.

Well, not that any of that really matters though i admired and enjoyed them all. As much as I love blues I have not seen many players live. Some outstanding guitarists I recall seeing are Steve Howe (YES), Greg Lake (ELP), Stevie Ray Vaughn, Joe Walsh, Keith Richards, and many others. Oh and I just remembered.
