Greetings from Michigan

Post by IIama » Tue Jun 06, 2017 5:13 am

Hello everyone,
My name is Pierce. I'm an amateur flatpicker looking to pick up classical guitar. While I've flatpicked since last summer, I have absolutely no experience with classical guitar. Should I find an adequate instructor, I'll likely be taking lessons for the duration of my summer break. Otherwise, I'm sure I can make do with online resources for now. In addition to classical guitar and flatpicking, I am pursuing bluegrass banjo. I've played banjo since late 2014, and I take weekly lessons whenever I'm home from college. I'm hoping the fingerpicking ability translates well to classical guitar, but that remains to be seen. One of the primary reasons for my interest in classical guitar (and in the banjo) is my interest in folk music. I'm a huge fan of early Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, and Mark Kozelek, and I'm hoping I'll be able to play some of their pieces as I progress with classical guitar. As for my own projects, I've yet to reach the point where I can compose music for any of the instruments that I play. I only began to seriously pursue musical performance about a year ago, at age 20, and had previously only played casually. Once I purchase my classical guitar, though, I fully intend to make up for the lost time. I look forward to discussing guitar with all of you, and I hope to become a valuable member of the community. Thanks for reading!
