Very interesting answers you all guys, read through again and again !
Let me just note again that I really l-o-v-e Classical guitar ( and it's repertoire of course ) as I stated from the beginning, and I understand you all love it too.
It's also true that some people do admire it too ( or at least they would admire it if they had the chance to hear it at sometime ) - and also that some people might ignore or run away - my sister and niece do so sometimes - or at some cg pieces ! This is also something I accept.
What my question is really about, has to do with my feel that Classical guitar seems to luck wider publicity and general acceptance, and seems to remain inside a close circle that mainly consists of ..classical guitar players! hmmm.. Though I dot find this a problem or a stopper of course, I somehow believe that this cycle shoud/could open up, so that more will be able to feel this magic
- maybe I'm wrong of course!
Steve lu for instance, has a nice idea "... to play for the opening of other gigs in other styles, folk or rock for example, since classical guitar is pretty versatile, this could be a way to reach a wider audience."
Personally, I would consider a good idea to transcribe some known quality songs, solo or/and as a duet with a singer for example, and present it in a program that could include a selection of classical pieces too! Hmm, I would like to try that in the future !
- for now i'm totally in cg pieces - no time for other staff..
I believe that these considerations are very important for CG, and maybe a look out of the "box" of the current status-quo could really worth it !
Any other Ideas / thoughs / considerations are very welcome !
Best Regards to all,
