I'm Elias Dorneles: software engineer, musician and addicted to learning things.

I like open source software, Udacity/KhanAcademy/Coursera, Python, Bash, Groovy & Grails, Javascript, GNU/Linux/Ubuntu, Wikipedia, fingerstyle guitar, Tommy Emmanuel, Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed and reading everything that I can.

comment How to go learn through a book
Some people say it's important that you are always challenging yourself. So, if you are bored with a piece, you may want to try another more difficult one. But you also should come back to it, and learn to build the patience to play a piece EVEN when you are bored...

comment Does Acoustic Blues Guitar Require Use of a Thumb Pick?
I do upstrokes with the thumbpick, momentarily using my index finger to do it. It's not the same thing a flat pick, but it's very alike a heavy one.
