Hello from Southern Indiana!

Post by sansamp77 » Sun Jul 02, 2017 8:40 pm

Hey everybody!
I've been playing guitar since i was 9, and i just turned 40! Time flies..
But I've only been playing classical guitar for 3 years. I can't read music, so I've had to come up with a way to learn pieces by listening to several different players, picking a performance, and ( if it's a video ), frankensteining a tabbed piece with bits and pieces of the fingerings i can see, and adding things that make that player's performance unique! I love Bream, Segovia, Williams, and Parkening. Those are usually the folks I reference.
I just listen to the song until it's memorized, then get to work!
I've never joined a board like this, but it's very cool that something like this is available to everyone.
Thanks for the add! I hope to learn a lot!
