I am an amateur upper-mid-level acoustic guitar player. I’ve been playing since 1980, both nylon and steel string guitars. I prefer classical jazz, old-style Russian and Western music, all in ‘fingerstyle’.
This blog is my attempt to share with fellow players my guitar harmony discoveries, interesting licks and small tips & tricks. Add to that my gear findings, reviews for books, CDs, DVDs and few my video and audio clips, and it pretty much describes what this site is about. I hope that you find it useful.
I live near Seattle, WA with my wife and two daughters. I speak Russian and RUnglish – English with thick Russian accent and its typical mistakes. It is tricky to pronounce my name, so here I go by “VB” – just by my initials.
From time to time, my posts will contain affiliate links to guitar books, gadgets, CDs or DVDs. I call it “my nano-business” because it doesn’t cover even the cost of Internet hosting services. I’m just looking at how all that stuff works and do something more serious about that later.
Thanks for visiting and happy playing!
VB (aka Vladimir)
