Hello there !

I officially retired last year. Though I used to play arpeggio guitar for many years, my retirement plan included learning to play fingerstyle guitar which I devoted quite a bit of my leisure times to for the last five years or so.

I played some easy classical music to get rid of my clumsyness and studied good old acoustic blues, country blues, pop, but I am particularly inclined toward instrumental movie themes and great songs of the fifties, crooners success and so. I more recently began to contruct my own tablatures from fake books.

I did buy and sell (maybe some of you got one or sold one to me !) many guitars in the process of discovering which guitar specs would suit me best. I also learned much about music, scales, modes and guitar adjustment.

Musically yours,

"mawmow"
P.S. I live in Levis (Quebec)... my mother tongue is French...

Thats like saying Lethal Weapon Fifteen outranks Citizen Kane because it grossed more at the box office. Its a bigger world now, of course it beats a time when the audience was smaller. Nothing but a provocative statement designed to draw attention.
