Just thought I would say hello.
I’ve played on and off a few years now. Generally open chord stuff, Brit Pop music ie the levellers, Oasis, Paul Weller etc… until just over a year ago.
We have a small theatre / Opera House in Buxton and I’ve seen lots of bands there. But last year the great Tommy Emanuale performed for an evening!!!
Now from that evening my attitude changed to what I would like to play on guitar. It’s now all finger picking, ie Don Ross, Mike Dawes, Amber Russell and even Lindsey Buckingham.
So I feel I am starting from scratch again but really enjoying the journey.
Hey David, welcome to the community. When I started playing finger style was the only thing that interested me, now I do a mixture of finger picking and strumming, mostly finger picking / style. It’s a wonderful sound.
Look forward to hearing more from you, thanks to you and Mrs google I now know what buxton water is. How often / much of it do you drink?
I didn’t go to Buxton but I loved tbe Peak District. We visited end of November '21 when a snowstorm hit the area and it snowed an impressive amount overnight and next day it was windy as hell. Nevertheless, we did our hiking that we went there for! Ok, we didn’t do the Kinder Scout but we did the Mam Tor and some other Tors around there too. Then I had the brilliant idea to take the B roads south in summer tyres
Fantastic experience, I want to visit the area again!
