            Allright, let's go see what's around the next bend. I'm getting too old for this ****************.

                    In no particular order:

                    1. learn to read music
                    2. learn finger board
                    3. learn harmony
                    4. learn music history
                    5. stretch your fingers
                    6. learn Paganini caprice and become shredmeister
                    7. it sounds good

                        Because there are some great tunes which sound good that way.

                            Although I'm an electric guy...there's nothing better than an acoustic with nylon strings to write songs...there is no distortion or effects distractions and the harmony can be heard more pristine, more pure

                              I wish I could have stayed with it.

                              I took lessons from a guy that could play any style. I asked him to teach me what he could, considering my not being able to take regularly scheduled lessons (I worked in the construction business).

                              Very difficult.

                              The counterpoint stuff (Baroque) was a struggle, to put it mildly. I got as far as being able to play some J.S. Bach. Also, learned Mason Williams' "Classical Gas". Can still do a passable version of Torrega's "Malaquena".

                              Ultimately, had to stop ... sadly. I even had a chance meeting with Christopher Parkening. He explained his total dedication and it was clear to me I could never go that route.

                              Good stuff!
