Hello from greater Los Angeles area

Postby Fredy J » Sat Mar 11, 2017 5:37 am

Hello to all. I am looking forward to learning from the information shared on this forum.

I am 44 years old and playing guitar has been a casual hobby. I don't play classical music but love the classical guitar. I'm looking to pick up a few simple to moderate pieces to play, and I don't have a clue where to start. This is the main reason I joined the group. Recommendations are more than welcome.

I am self taught and play mostly steel string acoustics. I don't read music but can play finger style.Ultimately, I plan on finding a local teacher to learn proper technique and get me on the right track.

That's all for now. I'm excited about getting started.

HI Fredy, i just joined up as well and it sounds like were in the same boat. I'm self taught as well but about to start some classical courses online i'm looking into classicalguitarshed.com or classicalguitarcorner.com I haven't made up my mind yet but this is if you don't plan on taking privates and might want to self pace yourself with a little discipline.
