Hey folks glad to introduce myself..
I'm left handed and play left handed and this is my musical journey to date...
At the grand young age of 50 in 2010
although never having had any previous musical experience, and perhaps in a mid-life kind of way
,I bought a cheap electric strat styled guiter and bumbled my way through learning to play Cavatina (Hank Marvin style). It took me a long time to get to that point...... But youtube introduced me to a lovely chap called Per Olov. His classical guitar work mesmerized me so much that my next foray was (with his permission) to attempt a virtual duet using my electric on a song of his called 'I Will Be There' (also on my youtube channel) He was very generous and encouraging with his comments (even tho it wasn't great
and that encouraged me get some lessons...
So in 2012
I took some lessons to learn acoustic guitar. and quickly focused on fingerpick style and that in itself led on to writing my own folk oriented stuff - I just love the creative process
A Craig Ogden CD (The Guitarist) bought by my wife, finally hooked me on the classical style (Favorite pieces
Le Onde and Romance No1) So.... in 2016
I bought myself a lovely classical RH Yamaha C30 which i converted to lefty... it has such a gorgeous tone
I haven't committed to ongoing classical lessons as yet. I had one lesson, learnt Andantino but to be honest at this moment in time I just use it to write with... I write and record my own music (recording itself has been a steep learning curve)
My guitar work is fairly limited but i'm enjoying where i'm at....
