    Hello from New York

    Hello from New York

    I have performed for more than twenty years as a classical and flamenco guitarist, and I also teach both. I was formerly a music critic for the Los Angeles Times and the L.A. Herald-Examiner.

    I also sell classical and flamenco guitars on my website – www.RamonAmiraGuitars.com

    I play piano badly – self taught. Pianists on the forum would bust a gut laughing watching me play – I play a single note melody line with the right hand, and occasionally plunk a root position triad with the left, though lately I'm graduating to root position arpeggios. Oh well . . . . .

    welcome!
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Hello Ramon and welcome to the forum. I look forward to you posting some of your guitar work, particularly flamenco. I too play classical guitar, but very badly.
