Hi from Liverpool

Post by poc600 » Sat Jul 01, 2017 6:50 pm

Hi everybody. At 58 years of age I have decided I want to learn to play an instrument. Love the sound of classical guitar so have ordered a Yamaha c40 on the internet .to get me going. Hopefully I will get to a level where a more expensive instrument will be worth the investment. I expect plenty of frustration but nothing worthwhile comes easy so looking forward to the journey and hoping to get support and advice here.

Thanks Geoff. I was going to try a method book to get me going but I think on refelection I should seek out a professional teacher as it could be easy to develop bad habits on your own. I'll look at thge forums and see if anyone has recommendations for a teacher in my area.
Regards
Peter
