ShortCircuit... have you tried Delcamp guitar forum? Might want to join and I'll meet you there... plenty of classical guitar music tabs, sheet music, guitar luthiers, guitar lessons, etc.... great place and I've been a member for a long time...
If I could do my life all over... I'd be a concert pianist and give up everything else, but still have a love of sailing...
Nick, you had a good mix of hobby and career. I wish I were not tone dead.
I don't mind to have yours. My son recently graduated in Aerospace and works in Sikorsky now in CT.
However, if I could do it over, I would be a fireman. I can be called Hero and but yet I sitting at the firehouse 90% of time. Best of all, I can be retired at 45 and get paid the rest of my life. You can beat this deal.
I read, I think, and I act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest on Sailnet, nor I am here for hookup. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of sailing the big Ponds. I am NOT afraid of drowning in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
