Hello from California

Post by polodias » Fri Sep 29, 2017 9:36 pm

Hello friends. I played guitar long time ago and right now I consider that I'm not good at this but want to learn. I just want to try again to see if this time I learn. I was around 14 years old when I started to learn guitar. I'm 57 now. Just want to fill up my time learning something interesting. I am self taught, now I'm using books and videos to learn. I am interested in easy pieces now and would like to learn classical pieces. I am using the Frederick Noad book and using MuseScore to hear how the songs sound before learning them. I have a large gap in my life learning guitar so wish me luck. Thanks!

Good luck! If you have the means, consider taking some lessons from a good Classical Guitar teacher. Depending on where you live it can be a chore finding a good one, but you'll progress faster if you do. Even having a lesson every month or two can be a great help.

Hello friends. I played ...
Hello Polodias,
Welcome to the forum. I have a very similar story. I am also using the Noad book on my own. I am also using the Julio Sagreras lessons. If you have already made it through most of the first position work in the Noad book, it will be helpful for your journey...BUT NOT NECESSARY FOR THE LESSONS FOUND HERE. The lessons in this forum are self contained and need no other prior knowledge other than your willingness to put in the practice time. By the time you reach the halfway point in the first level lessons, you will be playing some very amazing pieces with nice melodies. You will be surprised how quickly Prof. Delcamp challenges you to play real pieces. You will be more surprised to find yourself playing them, and building confidence to continue.
In agreement with the above suggestion, nothing beats a face to face teacher.

Again, welcome.
