Re: where is everybody from?

Good idea - chordie is accessed globally and I know of users from South Africa, Portugal, Scotland, Canada, USA, England, Autralia and who-knows-where-else.

I am from Starkville, Mississippi USA.  I write songs, sing, and play autoharp & bassoon.  I am 50 years old and have been learning about and playing music since I was a kid.

Re: where is everybody from?

I am from a place called Kilbarchan, which is about 15 miles west of Glasgow, Scotland. I'll be 40 this year and picked up my guitar about a year ago after a lay off of around 15 years. Still learning all the time and love every minute. I may not be very good but it's good for a sing-a-long with family and friends with a good bottle of single malt whisky.

Re: where is everybody from?

I'm a Brit from Nottingham but I have been living in Loulé Portugal for the last two years. I am the big 60 in May and been playing guitar since I was 11.

I am jealous of you Canadians though, you have got Amy Sky, my favourite female singer.

Re: where is everybody from?

Gainesville, VA but it's kind of considered suburban Washington, DC now.  I guess it's about 3 or 4 years since I've started playing but it feels like longer. I wish I had started when I was a kid but I finally saw the light.

Re: where is everybody from?


Im from a small town called Oskarshamn on the east coast of Sweden. Turning 40 next year and have been playing for almost 4 months now.

My 4 yaer old son have made me a master of the song "Born to be wild" by Steppenwolf. He saw the movie Herbie - Fully loaded, where that is the background song when they race. So now I have to play it every time he races his toy cars...  <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_biggrin.gif" border=0 alt="Very Happy">

Alvee33, can you send over some good singel malts? They are WAY too expensive in Sweden. I have some good ones but I can only buy them when Im abroad so I get them tax free...


If you love what you do, there's no need to be good at it...
