Ramón Alejandro Django. (Django is pronounced “Jango”. Also, RAD for short.)

He’s a total sadist and I can’t feel my fingers. I hate him.

The end.

    Good, then you’re doing it right. :) Two weeks and you’ll have mighty calluses.

    oooh…I remember when I first started playing. I feel your pain. My brother (who is an excellent guitarist, btw) says to rub just a very, very, VERY little bit of baby oil on the strings and that helps a little bit.

    HA! Django. Unfortunately, it’s the name of our content management system at work, so it’s all I think about! DATABASES! SO SEXY.

    Hola Ramon! Love it.

    I have a guitar that I’ve been meaning to learn how to play for a couple of years now. What’s your plan of attack? Are you getting lessons? Did you get any good books?

    Django is my dog’s name! Yes, I’m from a family of musicians. And yes, all of our family pets have had musical names. Yes, I’m a dork. Why do you ask?
