Hello from Aberdeen

Post by Willbill » Wed Sep 16, 2015 6:21 am

Greetings Forum

I'm a newbie to classical having played steel string acoustic on and off for 40 odd years. With retirement looming I thought it about time to learn to read music not only tabs and play some different pieces. I've mainly played ragtime and blues but started playing some Celtic tunes of late which I love (time and space) just started on Romanza and looking forward to getting my first Classical.

Cheers


Willbill

Hi Willbill. Welcome to the forum. We have quite a few members in Scotland and Aberdeen is one of the hotspots of activity with the North-East Scotland Classical Guitar Society. Look them up.

See you around.

I used to live in the next town over from Aberdeen. And I remember when they changed the name. Something about not wanting to be associated with Matawan or something like that. Not too far from Cheesequake State Park in beautiful Monmouth county. Now I live up north close to exit 140. Anyway, I would like to welcome a fellow New Jerseyan to the forum.

Oh, I assumed he meant Aberdeen, Scotland's third city - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aberdeen. I guess we'll find out which. :D

We are all neighbors in the global village. Aberdeen in New Jersey is a small suburb of New York City, not generally a place one would just know by name. I only know it because I lived close by. There are probably many people living in NJ who have never heard of it. Just thought it was funny that the OP didn't specify.
