Greetings from an Italian lost in Paris

Post by lollilive » Sat Aug 12, 2017 8:43 am

To make a long story short, I am an endless false beginner, who started playing guitar a few decades ago, in Rome, the city where I was born. I initially started with playing pop songs, and progressively moved to classical (Spanish) guitar, also taking courses in a (great) school. I was a teenager, and I had all the time and passion needed to become a decent guitarist. Then the constraints of working life gradually eroded the share of mind I could dedicate to my active musical interest, going from 6 hours per day to ... 6 hours per year. :-(

40 years later, the passion is still there, my nails still deliver a good sound and my musical culture has certainly increased. I have just restarted with the most affordable pieces from Sor, Tarrega, Barrios, Brower, and many others giants. I am interested in any suggestions of scores involving reasonable difficulty and great musical content.

Cheers,
Lolli

How about Argentinian music from the early 20th century: Julio Salvador Sagreras, to be found here:
Sagreras
Please scroll down the page to find "Obras para guitarra". Many of the "Lecciones" esp. in volumes 4-6
are also well worth playing and listening to.

Thank you so much Bernhard! That's very nice of you.

I don't know Julio Salvador Sagreras (Sorry for this!), but I will certainly have a look at the scores and listen attentively to the videos.
