    Hello everyone!
    My name is Fernando, from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    I've played guitar for many years (despite not being very skilled), but I like to chat about music, gear and really about anything...
    I was never in the US and my level of English writing/speaking is quite weak... so I also liked the idea of joining an English-speaking community, to chat and maybe practice some English language (you can correct me anytime if you see gramatic "horrors").

    I love blues and classic rock, but I have a particular taste for funk/soul music, especially "The Meters," James Brown and all the old-school funky sound. But I listen to all kind of music.

    My love for Telecasters is mainly due to Danny Gatton and Prince... among many other guitarists.
    In addition to Teles, I also have preference for Fender tube amps and 335 guitars.

    My gear these days consists of:

    - Fender Telecaster 52 Reissue (2008)

    [​IMG]


    - 1972 Fender Pro Reverb silverface

    [​IMG]


    - Squier Strat (my first guitar)
    - Vox Adio mini amp

    I have had several guitars and amplifiers, but for economic reasons I had to sell/buy, instead of stocking.

    See you around!

    If you had not mentioned that English is not your first language, I would not have know.

    Welcome!

    Welcome! FYI, my team are the San Jose Earthquakes, currently coached by former Argentine international Mattias Almeyda (in case you're a football fan).

    Welcome! Just so you know....your English, spelling and grammar are WAY better than many of the "locals" around here. Maybe you'll be a good influence on some of them....;)

    Welcome. Nice introduction.

    I can tell you are not a native English speaker because you write pretty good English rather than rely on slang, colloquialisms and abbreviations like many others.

    Hey, thanks for the warm welcome!!


    "With a little help from Google Translate" ;) It's very easy with the help of the translator ... but it's just what I should avoid using to gain fluency, which I can assure you I don't have.

    I also notice that I use many more words to say something, than someone who speaks it frequently.


    I might be the only Argentinian who doesn't like football!!
