I'm Kamen from Sofia, Bulgaria (although not for long, because in April I will start travelling through southern Europe
I'm 27 years old and started playing classical guitar 9 months ago with no previous experience in music (except only for some very basic music theory).
I take lessons from a teacher once per week and it is going very good. The textbook we go through is in bulgarian language and I think it is really good.
So far I've learned some arpeggios, different right-hand patterns, few a bit more complex pieces (at least to me), some music theory.
I play every day for 1-2 hours with probably 1 day break per week. It's hard, because I must play each new thing for few hundred times in order to get somewhere, but as a whole I'm glad with the progress.
The problem is I won't be visiting my teacher anymore, because after 1 month I will start travelling (with my guitar) for unknown period of time. That's why I started looking for other ways of learning and I found this forum.
I hope I can start from the level I already have and continue from there, without picking too hard or too easy things. This will be the hardest thing, because when you have a teacher, he "builds" in you gradually with the exact pace you need. Without a teacher it will be really hard, but I don't have other choice due to the constant travelling.
