Greetings from Dublin

Post by namlehai » Thu Feb 09, 2017 3:10 pm

Hello Everyone,

I'm a new member of the forum. My name is Nam from Vietnam, a 27 years old guy.
I'm now a PhD student in Computer Science in University College Dublin but I love guitar, specifically classical guitar.

I can play the melody and imitate guitar players when I was 8, but my family did not have good financial condition to support me following the artist career, so I left the guitar when I was 10, and followed my 'academic' study like other children in Vietnam.

For such a long time, I often listen to several kinds of music in general, and guitar as well, but I did not touch the guitar for at least a time. But 3 years ago, I came up with the idea of playing the guitar again after more than 14 years. I started to learn how to play classical guitar by myself with a lot of textbooks and videos from the internet, showing classical techniques. I do not have much time on working hours so I'm a self-taught, listen and play whenever I'm free.

Currently, my guitar is Antonio Picado model 45 from Spain, I bought it on e - b a y for 500 pounds. She's still beautiful with a lovely sound.

As a self-taught, first I started with some etudes from Carulli books, but I can play several pieces easily. Then I switched to fernando Sor etudes. I found Fernando Sor the most impressive to me with 20 etudes collection by Segovia. I can play etudes 1,2,3,5,6 from that.

I'm having a plan to play classical pieces by Agustin Barrios, Tarrega, and some rearrangement from the music of Bach, Beethoven (but easy versions).

The guitar players I love the most are Andres Segovia, John Williams, Alvaro Pierri, Christopher Parkening :)

Nice to know you all. Hope to learn a lot from you :)

Dear Erik,

Many thanks for your support.
However, I didn't receive 2 messages from moderators for such a long time so I cant connect to score libraries and post my own recording.

Nice to know you.

Nam.

You got the wrong end of the stick, Nam. It is you who has to post two messages, not the Moderators, whose role is to approve your first two posts. Anyway, you now have three approved messages, so you are good to go. :D

Oh great George,

So I just need to send 2 messages to someone, right.

Thank you very much.

Nam, "posts" and "messages" are the same thing. This is both a post and a message. "Private messages" are different. You have already met the requirements to access the areas outlined in Erik's post.
