    Hello Amit,

    It's great that you registered with us We hope to see you more often here.

    Why don't you tell more about yourself ? What do you do in Paris - Study / Work or just travel ?

    What music do you listen to, what's your guitar expertise, how long you've been playing, etc,.

    Cheers.

    Thanks for the warm welcome Allen and SuperAdmin :-)

    Well more about me - I'm from Punjab, living in Bangalore, working for an IT Company as a presales & tech consultant. I am based in Paris currently for work, for last one year and plan to return to India very soon for few months before I head to a different country.

    I used be on IGT when I was in college. Played a lot of guitar and keyboard in college as hobby and job never gave me enough time to practice music in last 5 yrs. As mentioned, I have few free months between 2 assignments and this free time will be spent in India and I wish to utilize this for music and fitness. Therefore planning to buy a serious acoustic guitar.

    I own a basic decent Givson guitar and Yamaha PSR I-425 keyboard. I play random hindi or soft english songs (easy ones) but trying to upgrade my skills learning from the experts on this forum.

    You guys completely rock!

    Thank you Alpha1. Well work didn't let me catch the Roland Garros LIVE but was lucky enough to catch Kommz music festival at Aschaafenburg, Germany (Home - Kommz) and Fete De Musique in Paris (Fête de la Musique - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). Both were a TREAT for any music lover! :-)

    Hi SuperAdmin - that's very nice and kind of you to help a newbie here. I truly appreciate that :-)

    For sure I'm here for lifelong now!
    I have another thread on this. I'm looking for a very nice sounding guitar with lot of base. I don't like the treble sound of my old Givson which I bought on a tight budget in college days. I have a budget around 10k for an electro-acoustic guitar and looking to buy this in Bangalore when I return next week. Please PM me if you have any contacts and recommendations there.

    As of now, I have Ibanez 72ece, Fender CD60 and Yamaha F310 in top options.

    I play Bollywood type music and I'm priamrily going to do some recordings for myslef to listen and improve and also play at some small corporate/family parties. Would you recommend an acoustic or electo-acoustic or electric? I'm confused.

    Thanks again for all your time and warmth :-)
