Well, if you can call my playing playing. Some years ago I began studying classical and Spanish guitar. I love the Spanish guitar. And classical guitar, of course. And jazz. But mine has been classical and Spanish. Also, I have the perfect fingernails for such acoustic guitar playing.
Anyway, my teacher has been my friend of some 45 years, a superb flamenco guitarist. I also introduced him to traditional shaving with a Gillette Red Tip and a few other goods, and taught him the art of it. He's a wonderful guy, and a great storyteller.
Unfortunately, I've started and stopped my study and playing several times during my life. Having an exceptionally busy life leaves me little time for practice. Whatever I do in life I commit hundred percent to it. No half-assed stuff for me. No, sir. If you're going to do it, do it right and nothing half way, is what I say. With little time for practice, however, I have put the guitar aside for a while, hoping to pick it up again in the future.
I bought that guitar, a Garcia, some 20 years and it still is in good shape. One of these days, though, I will buy myself a higher end guitar and grow my finger nails again.
