Subject: RE: BS: Where did ur name come from?
When I first signed on I used the name Fingers being a melodeon player. It was also a joke as clumsy people are sometimes called 'fingers'. I lost the signon so signed on again as Manitas. This is a reference to the joke name Manitas de Plumbos which is itself a reference to the flamenco guitarist Manitas de Plata (silver fingers).
