I've been to France a few times myself and agree it's a beautiful country. Didn't care for Paris much, though. :wink:
Where do you live?

I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. I must say I really enjoyed Paris simply because there was so much to see and do. The weather was fantastic. If you're even remotely interested in the history or the art/culture that the city has to offer you can't go wrong. So many Museums. Truthfully I got fairly bored of the museums on my two week trip to France and Italy, but I started in Paris so it was still fresh.

I'd love to go back, but more likely if I ever get to travel internationally again I'd rather see other parts of the world.

Well... here is my December post. This was a very rough year for me. I haven't had a regular job in 13 years... and have spent most of this one unemployed. Not fun at all.

Anyway... have fun guys.

You are most welcome here, dear Fanfan! Your English looks good. Feel free to practice here. We'll be glad to help. :D

Lesson 1: "Mistakes". Don't worry about them. :mrgreen:

It looks like you've been on the forum for quite awhile! Do you have any favorite MP3s, videos or members' scores to recommend? I'm pretty much lost on the forum. (I speak no French :oops: )

Hi, Tarbaby,

I've been around for a few years now, true, but it's hard for me to recommend MP3s because I only exceptionally listen to them. Being what you would term an elderly person, I'm set in my old habits, which, as far as consuming music is concerned, consist in buying and listening to CDs.

Still, I've posted a number of vintage recordings these last few months in that section of the forum titled "Trésors de nos discothèques" or something like that. But in order to appreciate the likes of Barrios or Llobet (there's some Pernambuco in the pipeline, you can log on some time next month), you must NOT be addicted to hifi, or you'll get a heart attack!

Looks like this thread has been quiet for a spell. Time to get 'er going again, while racking up my oblig. post. So....Happy ...um...Wednesday, everyone!

How's the weather where you are? Here it is snowy, cold, -25 C (should get warmer today), but bright blue sky. All in all, not bad for getting out cross-country skiing.

Cheers

Ken

Alrighty... for some weird reason I couldn't log in for a while and with GeoffB's help I got it fixed. Thanks to Geoff and the rest of the staff for all your help and kind consideration. Anyway... today it's a sunny albeit windy 88 degree day in paradise (Los Cabos). I hope everyone is having fun and plucking those strings.

Toddles!

Hey man! I looked at your profile and you're only one year younger than I am! :mrgreen:

Ha ha! I like to listen to CDs, too. But I really enjoy hearing some of the amateur recordings from the Delcamp members. They are so sincere and not "over produced".

(I don't think I'll ever buy an iPod). :wink:

Thank you, Fanfan, I found them. You've posted quite a few! I love those old recordings. There is something magical about them that you just can't get with digital recordings.

I liked the Luise Walker recording of the Brahms Waltz very much. I bought some of her original compositions while I was living in Munich in the 70's. Her pieces were quite popular there, but I never knew anything else about her.

Get this: The first time I ever heard that Waltz was on a Chet Atkins record that my father had. I was a young child at the time, and was fascinated by that record! It also had "Adelita" on it. That was the first time I heard that piece, too!

Cheers!
