Greetings from Maryland USA

Post by Buddhabreath » Thu May 23, 2019 11:16 pm

Hello Everyone,

I’m looking forward to being a part of this online community. I somewhat casually played guitar from my 20s through my 30s. I’m pushing 60 now and have picked up the guitar again the last couple of years and this time with more intensity. I also play a bit of Sitar and Kora and also have a Pipa and an Oud. I have several guitars but my main axes are a Kremona 90th anniversary and an Augustin Fernandez 8-string. I am actually probably a better steel string player. I have made a lot of progress with my playing (and singing) the last year and rather than build a classical repertoire,I am more interested in technique and theory to advance my own compositions. I’m trying to gather the courage to do an open mic/perform publicly for the first time in about 30 years and would love to form an eclectic musical group or collaboration with like minded people. My musical background is very diverse with my main inspiration being lesser know progressive rock bands and chamber/avant- rock. Anyway, I hope to achieve and record something before I get too damn old.

Apologies for being long-winded!

- Bill

Welcome Bill :)

Just play your guitar and enjoy it. If you want to become more "expert" at it, there's lots of info AND people on Delcamp to encourage you in that direction, enough to last you the rest of your life, if you're so inclined.

Cheers!

Hi Frank, I’m also in Columbia FYI. Perhaps I’ll look into that Open Stage event and see what it’s about. In the meantime I do hope to marshal the courage to do an open mic or two. :)

Cheers!
