Hello from Texas

Post by tele8156 » Wed Jan 11, 2012 4:07 am

Hey everyone, new guy here. I found my way to this forum by way of the Dolphinstreet forum. I love the Blues and have been playing my version of it for almost two years on 6 string, although I played bass in a past life about 25 years ago. Looks like a fun place to hang out. :D

:welcome:, Tele, from Round Rock, Texas - just a few miles north of Austin. We have a few more Texans on this forum as well.

I also played bass in a rock band in college about....Yikes!!....40 years ago. Started learning blues on the 6 string almost 3 years ago.

You will find lots of excellent folks on this site - great music as well. Lots of players here at all different levels of skill.

Hi Tele
and Welcome from Rickmansworth, in Hertfordshire, England :wave:
Doesn't sound the same does it ??
Why do American places sound Cool and Bluesey ..and work great in songs too :icon_whoknows:
Apart from "Streets of London".... .which was y-e-a-r-s ago ....... Brit places and expressions rarely seem to feature in songs.

I digress !! :D

You've found "THE" place on the web here Tele ..Enjoy !

¡Hola! and welcome from Spain (doesn't sound bluesy either!). Your site link is very interesting, spent a while there, will return later. Nice.
