Subject: RE: Learning to play guitar
Thanks Roger. The health problems were in the past. The major malady I suffer from now is inertia. My main interest has been in old time American music--both black and white. This is not an interest shared by many here. I am now becoming aware of Australian bush music and I think it has a lot of possibilities for a guitar fingerpicker. In the groups I have heard, the guitar has more of a rythm role. I plan to get out to one of the clubs and start getting familiar with good acoustic Australian bush music.

I would also like to get more familiar with the Australian/Celtic style of harmonica playing.

Mark, I suspect what you miss is Chicago of the 60s. I don't know where you are now; but you are separated from it by time-space.
