Hello,

My name is Nick and I've been playing guitar in one form or another for almost 18 years now. Though I've always flirted with learning a classical piece here and there, about 5 years ago I discovered the great Brazilian maestro, Heitor Villa-Lobos. His music inspired me to work at learning like no other. I'm proud to have memorized several of his best known guitar pieces and since branched out to learning a few pieces by Albeniz, Tarrega, Granados, and Barrios. Just recently, I began the titanic undertaking that is Villa-Lobos' 12 Etudes and it occurred to me that if I was to be successful I would need to get far more serious about classical guitar. Up until this point I have been self taught and playing on a (much beloved) steel-stringed Martin D-16. I am currently in the process of looking for a good local teacher and hope to purchase my first nylon-stringed instrument in the near future. This board has always been a great resource and I look forward to being an active participant in discussions!
