Has anyone ever met Mr. Stropes

Postby LowdenF24 » Mon Sep 06, 2010 2:06 pm

First off, it is my opinion that John Stropes sealed his place in musical history through his collaboration with Michael on "Rhythm, Sonority, Silence".

That said, I've just recently searched the web, youtube, etc., and the guy seems to be Claude Raines. You would think as a "leading authority of fingerstyle guitar" the guy would have presence beyond his sheet music website.

Just curious.

Correct, and the fist line of his bio there is "John Stropes is a leading authority on finger-style guitar."

I am only innocently questioning whether anyone has personal experience with John to back up this claim.

Ben - Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki (or as we refer to him in the Navel Lint Alliance) Dr. Krusty, is a chump. He's been pillaging our work for years. If he had any REAL hands on experience, don't you think he would have mentioned SOMETHING about the odor produced by naval lint? That alone should prove to the rest of the community that he's a fraud, and simply reads our NLA blogs, and passes the data off as his own. I know for a fact that Karl has stolen data from me, because he's the ONLY subscriber to my otherwise successful blog. :twisted:
