Hi there all, the way from Bolivia

Post by Carlos Alborta » Sat Aug 12, 2017 3:44 pm

Dear all,
My name is Carlos and I enjoy the oportunity this forum provides to students like myself. I took a few classical guitar lessons decades ago, being 54, and I regret having discontinuated it all. I might have to restart all over again. Self training is tough but this forum will prove useful in my circunstances.
At present, I teach musicology at an institute in La Paz.
Cheers.
Carlos

Carlos, I'm 62 and I've just begun. It is giving me great pleasure. I don't compare myself with others but rather look to my incremental progress . I'm convinced that with consistent , deliberate practice , we can all learn to play the instrument pleasantly.

Thank you fixie, let us share experiences, and, if need be, let us share guitar music. I should get used to this website, as a first step.
Best regards,
Carlos :D

Hi Pill,
Thank you. It is good to know you get the best of consistent practice. Your words are encouraging.
We will get in touch, should I get lost along the route. Iam still getting used to this website.
Best regards,
Carlos
