Eclectic Infinities

This obscurely titled blog covers my eclectic interests and occasional activities in pen-and-paper role-playing games, board games, computer games, and probably other things besides. For historical wargaming activities, see the blog maintained by my alter-ego, The Wishful Wargamer.

Admira Malaga

I've always loved classical guitar music and after my son was given a guitar and started lessons I thought I'd learn too, so I bought a guitar.  It's an Admira Malaga and I think that it is a beautiful instrument.
It has a solid cedar top and the sides and back are made from a wood called sapelli (a tropical African wood similar to mahogany).  The neck actually is African mahogany and the bridge and fingerboard are made of mongoy (another hardwood from west and east Africa).

I'm still learning and try to play every day (using Frederick Noad's Solo Guitar Playing (Vol 1)) which I think is excellent.   A long way to go yet but I'm enjoying it!
