    Mark O'Connor . . . this guy is supposed to be a master of the violin. I guess if you're good with
    strings, you can be good with all strings. Might explain why I wasn't much good at either . . .

    Tommy Emmanuel. I'm a BIG fan of his. He's coming to Phoenix sometime in January, I think. Guess
    where I'm going to be that night.

    It sounds as if he's receiving bass accompaniment. He's not. It's all him on his guitar.

    I'm sure you've heard the expression, "He can make that thing talk."
    That might have been coined by someone who heard Frank Vignola play . . .

    I've been following this young lady. She's really coming along.
    Pay attention to all the different things her right hand is doing . . .

    "Fastest in the world" is the claim. I have seen other guitarists who can play right alongside him.
    Still impressive and entertaining, though. But I'm not crazy about using a pick for Spanish guitar.

    I have a guitar, a birthday present from Mum about 15ish years ago.
    I don't think it's ever been set up properly as I used to find the strings quite hard to press down to the fret board.
    It wasn't an expensive guitar - cost around 80 at the time.
    I don't think I've touched it this decade at all and I only ever learned three chords to start with.
    Would it be worth taking it to the guitar shop in the next town to have it set up right?
    I'd like to take it up once more and don't really want to spend money on a better one, especially if i don't stick with learning. Plus I'm somewhat sentimentally attached to this one as it was a gift.

    I don't know that you need to take it to a shop unless the guitar is quite sketchy.

    Just replace the strings and tune it. There are several youtube videos that can show this, or we would certainly help. Strings aren't too expensive. When you buy the strings, you could ask the shop if they think the instrument is worth restringing. If it's warped it might be a mistake to continue with that instrument as you will not find a satisfying sound, and this will ruin the experience.

    After that, pick a song you really like and find the tab for it online. Then get to it, and realize your fingers will become stronger and callused as you insist on improving.

    Good luck, sharp-toothed one! Report back...
