Hello from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

Post by Kurt Penner » Mon Nov 28, 2016 4:37 am

Hi everyone,

I grew up playing classical and electric guitar in my teens. Then career and life got in the way for a few decades. Life is quieter now, and I was inspired to get back at it after watching the Youtube vids of Isabelle Selder playing the Walton Bagatelles.

I spent the last year slowly learning them, and have 2-4 under my fingers. 1 & 5 are still coming.

I play a unique 7 string classical built in the Romanillos style by local luthier Jordan McConnell.

Now I have finally committed to taking lessons again and will be meeting with my old teacher this week. I hope this fills a void in my life.

Welcome to Delcamp Kurt!

If you haven't already, please take a moment to read this page for a good rundown on how the forum works, rules, history, etc. You have found a great source of classical guitar knowledge, as we have a wide assortment of members, from beginners to performing artists, with a number of fine teachers, historians, and luthiers too. So feel free to ask any questions you might have, but consider using the search function first, as many topics have already been discussed at length.

If you participate in other online forums, you might notice that things can get pretty heated at times. Delcamp takes great strides to avoid that. Here is what Mssr. Delcamp himself has to offer on that.

It is important to note that there is a requirement to post an average of once a month. Members not meeting this standard may have their memberships terminated.

Adding your location to your profile is a nice touch. Many of us have made new friends from doing just that.

Again, welcome to the forum!

Regards,
