    Hi everyone!

    Hello guys. I would like to say a few words about me: I'm a rock n' roll lover and I like to create songs. I lead the project called Delicious Grace.

    Hope we can get along great.

    Your perfect spelling and use of English isn't the problem, that's for sure.
    And the name of your project called Delicious Grace has a nice resonance to it,
    thinking of Grace as a spiritual aspect, and seeing Delicious as being about the enjoyment.

    I'm looking at your name as being Al Capp one dudu, and I'm thinking doo-doo, not dude,
    or even dudette. My next thought was Al Capone dudu, still not getting your use of font.

    I'm going to impose a little of my own duality here, just having an idea.
    I'm going to go advanced to display two photos of angels I took on the same night.
    When I usually use these I ask which one do you think is real,
    but I won't do that here, no, I won't, not even once, because I'll wait to see your comments.
    You might even think one of these graphics could work with Delicious Grace.
    And it's not me turning this first angel sideways.
    The first night cloud angel is as I saw it, the second is a close-up that didn't get it all.

    Hi John. How are you?

    I've been using this nickname for a while and the correct would be alcapone_dudu but I could not use (_) here I don't know why. Dudu is short for Eduardo in portuguese.

    I liked your point about the name ''Delicious Grace''. Sounds like you got some it.

    Looking foward to post some songs here.

    I say girlfriend because she wasn't a boyfriend.
    She worked as a waitress at a restaurant night-club we played.
    This business, an expensive stop beside a major highway, had a really good lunch buffet,
    so when we played I ate there every day, where I sat with her during breaks.
    She said she came from a small village and wanted to get away from a strict society.

    I had a girlfriend from Malta, maybe you've been there. She was a university student.
    She had olive coloured skin with darker green skin, another very attractive woman.

    I'm drawing a blank when it comes to thinking Portugese music.
    I can't think of a movie that was made in Portugal.
    The history of Portugal as a mighty marine nation with world explorers is ordinary history,
    and I'm sure you were inflicted with the Spanish, if not Vatican, inquisition.

    I don't know if you consider yourself a cultural, or roots performer,
    or if you're doing sampled electronica, but I'm interested to hear how you sound.
    If you ever make it big enough to start your own restaurant franchise,
    I'd call it Deli-Shush, known for a quiet, romantic atmosphere.

    Be prepared for some serious commentary if you post some songs here.
    I never have. Just a minute, I've got an idea.

    Here's a link to a 46 second video of me working on my newest guitar.
    The DVD of the Santana reunion concert is playing in the background.
    I called it Sand-tana.

    Cool! You're a funny man in a good way. Is your guitar already done? I'd like to see what you came up with.

    Sorry if I got you confused but I'm not from Portugal. I'm from Brazil.

    John, that was a great lesson you just gave me about guitars. Thanks for that.

    Interesting story about ''The Girl From Ipanema''. Even though I'm not into bossa nova that much I can tell that those guys made a magnificent job. It's a very classy style.

    You're a good guy but to make this conversation complete we need to drink, man. Whisky prefereably.

    You are a professional musician?

    I got your point. Although I think it would be cool to listen to some of your tunes.

    I'm not very into self-promotion either but that's just the way it's. If I don't show my music to people nobody is going to do that for me.

    What I'm trying to do is to post my work only in places I think it's worth.

    First, it must be nice for Frederik Magle and his friends, having these forums,
    and the private messaging system, to stay in touch as they travel around the world.
    I shouldn't even mention the haters and negators you find in American forums,
    because everyone here is polite and informative, if not personal, without a whiff of predatory conduct.
    I must agree with you about that aspect you mentioned. Everybody here seems to be very into music and with a positive attitude towards it.

    John, sorry for shortening your messages but I really wanted to highlight this part.
