Good day: I am a seventy-five year old retired psychiatrist living with my wife, two dogs, and four cats in the mountains of California. I bought my first classical guitar, a Takamani in 1970. I have played off and on since that time. Unfortunately, when I was quite young, working as a apprentice seaman, I got my left hand entangled in a rope, which resulted in the fracture of a number of bones, with lingering paralisis of my anular and small finger. This limits what chords I can create, but nevertheless I continue to enjoy doing what I can do with the five classical guitars that I currently own.

Be well, Ronald James
