Central Indiana USA says: "Howdy!"

Postby Kaeote » Sun Dec 25, 2016 3:39 pm

Greetings,

My name is Timothy Barr and I am a semi retired chiropractor in Nashville Indiana, a small but delightful tourist town, in the hills of Brown county.
I began playing guitar in about 1966 when i got an electric guitar and thankfully my Mom and Dad got me lessons with a great jazz fingerstyle musician [ long before "fingerstyle" was called fingerstyle] in Thornton CO named Stacy McKee. I've since run into many of his students so if any of you remember Stacy give a shout out.
Unfortunately I was young and stupid and didn't realize what a treasure I had with Stacy and I drifted away but while studying music at Denver Metro state I fell in love with classical guitar and began lessons with Van Arsdall [ SP?] for several years. Mid 70s I transfered to Fort Lewis in Durango and continued my music study but found my calling in health care and went on to study chiropractic and practiced here in central Indiana for the last 35 years.
The demands of family and business meant I played sporadically and only managed to retain some finger skills and limited repetoir. Then in 96 I began to study with Brett Terrell in broad Ripple / Indianapolis - [ who was with Butler University ] and rekindled my love for the instrument. I still had my old crappy first classical guitar and Brett hooked me up with a Ramirez which I still have and play.
I love the spanish composers and my favorite piece to play is the Sonatina in A. unfortunately I no longer retain the skills to aquit myself on this piece without shame so I only play it for myself. I also love rennaisance.
Since then I have also reconnected with my jazz roots and aquired several other styles of guitar. Here in Nashville we have a fingerstyle competition in late July - August each year and many talented players [ come visit !]
I found this forum on christmas day while searching for Piano and guitar duets as my wife got a keyboard and is reconnecting with her music roots.
I am looking forward to knocking about here and welcome your responses.

Timothy

Hi Tim

I decided to check intros to see if anybody would post on Christmas day. You win!

My wife and I hope to move to Columbus Indiana sometime in the near future. We went stopped in touristy Nashville and wandered in the shops. Our biggest purchase was ice cream.

If/when we make the move maybe you can tell me about some of the local teachers. I have high hopes and expectations with UI's guitar program in Bloomington.

Hey Jim,

That would be cool. what a coincidence. I have not had any direct interaction with IU S.O.M. recently I emailed the lute teacher and basically got the bums rush,with a hasty reply telling me to look elsewhere and no response to my follow up. so I hope you do better. definately let me know if you are around in the future. You are probably playing at a level way above my current skill set but I would love to do duets with someone.

Hi

Wow! And I was counting on UI SoM to give me some much needed help. I'll be in touch if/when we move to Columbus. I think you have it backwards regarding my level vs. yours. Let's just say that I have an MBA degree (Music Butchers of America) in CG.

Ha, well I don't mean to be a negative nellie about IU SoM and they may be wonderful and helpful. I was just sharing my experience with that one person. We have a great music scene here in Nashville and if you are interested in playing duets let me know.

Sounds like the Mayberry of the Midwest. Love small towns. Welcome and good luck with your progress. Keep looking. I'm sure a good teacher will show up when least expected.
