WOW <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_surprised.gif" border=0 alt="Surprised">  I just took a look at Tommy Emmanuel and he's a great musician and preformer. That's what I was saying about being exposed to people we wouldn't have the chance to see or hear. Thanks Arkady.

We all all have mentors. Musicians we would love to play as well as, or have the chance to play with. I thought that this would expose others to artists that they would not otherwise be exposed to. I guess that we could all name at least a dozen yet there are two that I admire greatly. If I was to master the guitar as they have, I would be on a world tour.  <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_lol.gif" border=0 alt="Laughing">

Being Canadian I'm sold on Norman guitars. Solid tops and bottoms, their sound just gets better as they age. Just like us old-timmers.. <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_cool.gif" border=0 alt="Cool">

One month is really not a long time so you should not be discouraged. I started playing 25 years ago and I can tell you that the only way to get better is PRACTICE! I started by learning  <b>House of the Rising Sun</b>. I drove my sisters crazy playing it over and over again. I would play for 4 - 5 hours a day and I still play at least 1-2 hours a day. It is a good song to learn early as the chord changes are smooth and help you learn about these all important chord changes. Don't give up, playing any instrument is an art and it takes work. The payoff is fantastic.... If it was easy everyone would be doing it! <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_confused.gif" border=0 alt="Confused">
