Hi Doc,

I've not listened to much Irish music, other than some stuff by Thin Lizzy that is, any good bands I should start out listening to?

Also, since you said you were looking for a new guitar you should check of seagulls line of acoustic steel strings... They have some really great guitars at very reasonable prices.

Welcome to GKN,
Mike
