Hi all, my name is Morné from Pretoria, South Africa.

I got my very first guitar for x-mas and have been messing around for the last couple of days. It's a Santafé, classic (or like I read somewhere, a steel string). I have no previous musical background, so be ready for a LOT of questions!

My goal is not to be the next Stevie, Eric or Roger Walters, I just want to sit next to the camp fire, in the middle of the bush somewhere and play nice, easy listening "background" music.

Well, that's me in a nutshell, speak you on the forums...

Cheers for now,

Welcome to Guitar Noise, Morné! We look forward to seeing you around the forums! :D

I believe the guitar you have is a steel string acoustic. The classical acoustic guitars would require nylon strings. We're not opposed to seeing pictures!! :D

Howdy! I'm not from South Africa but someday hope to be. I'm thinking about starting up an ice skating rink there.

Welcome to GN. Be sure to post in the "Songs from the Bush" section of the forums! :P
