Congratulations on both your playing and your ownership.

And Bill, I honestly couldn't comment about Hawaiian music in NZ. I'd guess that there's a strong following though, especially further north where the Polynesian population is greater, although I suppose it's more Samoan drum based music. I just play the blues on my new electric lapy and also on a home converted resonator acoustic (which I wouldn't dare show Ricochet) as well as my Larrivee L03R six string (love it). As a matter of fact, I've just come back from the public Botanical Gardens near where I live, where frequently I take a guitar of some sort and sit and play under my favourite sycamore tree. I have built up quite a fan base of sparrows and thrushes and blackbirds and last week a couple of ducks wandered up to enjoy the blues according to Rick. It's nice to be so appreciated. :D

And forgive me for going on about it, but this forum just seems so embracing. It's humbling to think that you all spread this goodwill worldwide via cyberspace and I can access so many blues buddies so readily. :D :D

Sorry, just discovered that I'd posted my self-intro as a reply. Duh! Thanks, Ricochet, for your welcome. If I may say so, you have a very welcoming smile. :D


Wait till he shows you his Johnson.

Welcome.

Is Hawaiian music popular over in NZ?
