Greetings from Pacific, Missouri.

Interested in Learning to play classical guitar. Have never played before. Just purchased a new Yamaha C40 with a tuner.

My immediate goal is to learn so e of the basics from resources, such as YouTube before taking formal lessons.

Any recommendations from folks on here regarding books and CDs would be most helpful.

I think I posted this story on here before I was really active.

I was in the Army in the mid 1970s and lived in Germany 1976 to 1978. A couple of my older German friends invited me to a concert by a well known guitarist. Back then I loved classical music, mostly Mozart. I didn't know anything about classical guitar.

So, the night of the concert there was a terrible snow storm and only about 25 people showed up in a theatre that held probably 1200.

The guitarist held my attention for about 2 hours with beautiful music. After the concert we were invited back stage to meet the artist. We mingled and drank wine and I was able to have a good conversation in Spanish with him.

Only later did I realize that this "pretty good" guitarist was Andres Segovia.
