I'm glad that you've finally come to your senses Take the Angella out and play your Toccatatubeman wrote:Two years ago, I decided to quit the guitar for good and learn the piano. After about a year of fairly decent progress, I decided to donate all of my guitar scores (around 200-250) to a music conservatory's guitar department. Well, about two weeks ago, I started missing the guitar, so I am now having to go through the painful, and frequently expensive process of replacing my favorite pieces, many of which are now out of print or just obscenely expensive! (I'm just grateful that no one bought my beloved Angella guitar when I had it for sale on this forum!!)
Learn from my mistake: Think carefully and don't make rash decisions!
Over mine 50yrs classical I can't tell you how many times I thought I would never play CG again and how many times I stopped for a few months or even a few years and even thought about selling my guitars only to find myself starting playing again every day One thing I learnt from this experience is to never sell my good guitars but just let them rest.tubeman wrote:I've played guitar for about 45 years, 35 classical.
I still want to play the piano. Most transcriptions of keyboard music just sound and work better on a keyboard instrument in my opinion. In fact, that's what inspired me to learn the piano. I was trying to play some extremely difficult Bach transcriptions, particularly the 2nd and 6th keyboard Partitas, when I decided they would actually be easier to learn on the piano (some day...) and would certainly sound better and be more faithful to the original music.Mike Gover wrote:Perhaps you could sell the piano and buy CG scores?
