    Hello everyone. I am an amateur guitarist who deeply loves music, especially the American and British rock of the 80s and 90s (Allman Bros, U2, Pink Floyd ... and many many more). Every time I hear an electric guitar, on the street, or from a window, I need to stop and listen. I have a Strato Vintera 50s (2019) and a PRS Singlecut (2006), a Peavy Deltablues DC30 amp, and a Fender Champion 40 and I am very happy strumming. I started learning very late, but I hope some day I'll be able to delight my family and friends with many chained songs. Finally ... I take this opportunity to say that I am looking for some British woman who loves traditional Celtic music as well and wants to know and criticize my theory on the meaning of Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel (I am serious).

    Benvinguts!

    You’ll love it here!

    I haven’t been to Barcelona since ‘99 July, and Y2K! I miss it!

    One of my best friend’s sister has lived there for over 20 years now at Sant Joan Despi

    Hey JDug, THANK YOU!!!! . Benvingut you too :)
    Thanks a lot!!!. I will be happy to act as a courier for you whenever you need it. I love that the World is united by friendship and music. Sant Joan Despí is a nice place with some beautiful houses, closely related to Barcelona Football Club. Happy to meet you.
    Barcelona is now also a strange place due to COVID measures. But music is in our hearts, that's why a great clinical trial is being carried out taking advantage of a concert by a Spanish group called "Love of Lesbian" at the Palau de Sant Jordi (St. George Palace) Olympic, last Saturday. 5000 attendees took an antigen test before entering, and those who did not have a positive result enjoyed music with a FFP2 mask WITHOUT social distance. They are being followed up (internationally in Europe) to see the clinical results and to know if this can be useful to relaunch live music in Spain and in the world. A very welcome initiative.

    Well met everyone of you.

    Welcome. I have visited your beautiful city many times. I love Gaudi architecture - even saw a free rock concert in the Parc Guell many years ago. The Sagrada is my favourite building of all - hope to see it finished in my lifetime!!!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Everyone else forgot to mention it, but we're all big fans of guitar porn so the motto is, "no pictures, it didn't happen" :D

    Don't limit yourself to a woman here and you'll find any number of Brits here who might have something to offer on that. @simoncroft and/or @misterwogan come to mind...

    Welcome! I too always stop when I hear guitar coming from a window. Good luck on the woman front.

    And yes, we like to see pictures of your gear. Consider it an admission fee.:)
