Hi from Wales, UK

Post by EmBeaR » Mon Aug 19, 2019 7:00 pm

Hi, I'm Emma. I'm in my 50s and have been playing the guitar since I was 8. I'm largely self-taught, though my Mum taught me the basics of classical playing when I was 10-12 and I had lessons in my late teens from a local teacher in Kent (south-east England) where I grew up. I also play plectrum guitar and have recently taken up modern fingerstyle, and it's my dream to own (and play!) a 20 or 21 string harp guitar! I've battled RSI for most of the last 3 decades but have it mostly under control since I overhauled my playing technique a few years ago.

I always fancied one of those too. Saw one once in Bologna in a music shop window in another life and I love the clip in the movie "The Last Walz" where you see one briefly.
