Hello everyone,

I am an 'oldie' (66) trying to finally get the basics right, and I must admit that over the past couple of months my technique has shown a lot of progression byfollowing Breakthrough Guitar!

I am a fingerpicker playing a classical guitar to allow for much longer practice time (steel strings hurt!).

Favourite players I like to listento: Leo Kottke, Tommy Emmanuel, Merle Travis, etc.

My goal: being able to really play music without stumbling over basic techniques.

Thanx, always nice to hear from like-minded guitarists!

My steelstring (a well made Australian instument) has medium gauge strings which I like for playing with some power. On the shelf, however, I already have a slightly lighter gauge set available which I will mount soon. Hopefully these will allow for longer playing time without pain;) 

Other interests: ragtime (Ton van Bergeijk).
