A warm (and humid) Shalom from Israel!

Hi all!

My name is Dmitry, I prefer to be called Dima, but out of habit I go online by the handle dimrub, assigned to me by my first ISP back in '95.
As one can guess by looking at my name, I hail originally from Russia, where, as was typical in my environment, I went to a music school for 3 years during my junior school, majoring in violin (and learning some piano into the bargain, as was customary there and then). At that point I gave up on music - for good, as I thought back then. Never say never again, and 5 years ago I picked up the guitar. I found a terrific teacher and advanced well, I think, for about a year, but what with a new job, 2 small kids and other commitments, something had to give, and sadly, guitar fell by the wayside. Recently I felt like things eased down a bit, so about 3 months ago I asked my teacher whether he'd have me back, he agreed, and I've been studying enthusiastically ever since.

I'm now studying Carcassi's etude #3 opus 60 and Bach's Bouree out of BWV 996, and started studying the Bach's Minuet out of BWV 1067 that my teacher arranged per my request. I love the baroque (I've been listening to the baroque music long before I started entertaining the fantastic notion of actually playing it), so that was my first instinct - and luckily, my teacher went along with my natural inclination, but further down the road I'd love to be able to tackle also some of the more modern composers, such as Albeniz, Villa Lobos, Leo Brouer and others.

Well, that's about all I had to say about myself. Happy to be here with all the other guitar lovers!
