Greetings from a new forum member May 06, 2004 11:13 a.m.

Greetings from Columbus, Ohio

I am thrilled by finding this forum and hope I can become more involved with participating here. I�ll give a brief introduction for those who may be interested. My name is David and I just got my first Sitar about a month ago. I�ve been playing guitar, bass and mandolin for way too many years and I�ve worked 23 years now for a well known acoustic guitar company (C.F. Martin).

I have become fascinated with my Sitar and I have the impression that this love affair is very common among Sitar players! It is one of the most fascinating musical instruments I�ve ever touched. I am a complete beginner on the Sitar but maybe have a little beginners advantage in that I�m fairly familiar with the playing of fretted instruments.

I look forward to learning from everyone here at the forum and I�ll jump in with some immediate questions in separate posting.

Also, if there is anyone in the Columbus area who knows of other players or teachers I would love to be in contact with them.

Best Regards and Love and Peace to all musicians!
