Introducing myself, my name is Rick. In summary, I am one of those typical 40 somethings living a midlife crisis and wanting to add classical guitar to my bucket list. I'm a tyipical structural engineer, overworked and bored of crunching numbers and dealing with difficult people. Classical guitar helps me bridge the gap and relax. I have a spare classical guitar under my work station that gets pulled out to relax when the going gets tough.
Having always had a guitar sitting in the corner since I was 20, I have decided to take it seriously and try to do some classical grades. Having also meddled in some electric and acoustic steel over the years, I always come back to the classical guitar as the more challenging and beautifull instrument to pursue. Sat grade 5 trinity last year and intend to do grade 6 November this year. Might do grade 7 mid next year. The goal is to do some performance papers after grades, retire early and teach classical guitar......if I'm lucky.
My poor wife and kids are having to live this dream as well. My 8 year old daughter has wanted to play and is doing starting grades this year.
That's it in a nut shell.
