My introduction

Post by Roy Cohen » Thu Jul 06, 2017 12:29 pm

Hello,
My name is Roy from Tel Aviv Israel.
I play on classical guitar since i was 12 years old and learned in the conservatory for 6 years.
i have a long gap cause when i was in my 20's years i was busy on the rock and electronic genres cause i didn't have much information about what i can do with the classical genre.
anyway, i always used to listening classical music but this year i was fell in love totally with the classical music and i cannot hear something else. no rock, no jazz, nothing... I decided to focus and dedicate my life in my age (36) to study classical music only.

i go to the philharmonic orchestra in Israel 3 times at month, i read biographies of my beloved and sublime composers as: Handel, Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Tchaikovsky and so on...
as wall i started to read books and poetry wrote by Goethe, Schiller, Shakespeare- trying to understand even a little bit more about their majestic world.
On these days im working on pieces like this (transcribed for classical guitar): Handel- Passacaglia, Bach - Air on G (in D) and more pieces by bach - Chopin - Vals op 64- 2 Em, Nocturne Transcribed by Tarrega, Beethoven - Adagio from pathetique Sonata (By Tarrega, Moonlight sonata, Fur Ellise, Fernando Sor- Malborough s'en va t'en guerre, Schubert - lob der tränen - Villa Lobos - Etude no 1 for now and more...

I hope to get more knowledge and wisdom from this forum, as well, to find interesting transcriptions and pieces (i'm sure about it).

Greetings,
Roy

Welcome to Delcamp!

If you haven't already, please take a moment to read this page for a good rundown on how the forum works, rules, history, etc. You have found a great source of classical guitar knowledge, as we have a wide assortment of members, from beginners to performing artists, with a number of fine teachers, historians, and luthiers too. So feel free to ask any questions you might have, but consider using the search function first, as many topics have already been discussed at length.

If you participate in other online forums, you might notice that things can get pretty heated at times. Delcamp takes great strides to avoid that. Here is what Mssr. Delcamp himself has to offer on that.

It is important to note that there is a requirement to post an average of once a month. Members not meeting this standard may have their memberships terminated.

Adding your location to your profile is a nice touch. Many of us have made new friends from doing just that.

Again, welcome to the forum!

Regards,

Welcome! I loved what you said about reading literature to immerse yourself in the world from which the music sprang
