Hello from Brooklyn, NY

Post by danius » Tue Oct 03, 2017 3:12 am

Hi!

After playing guitar for several years, I finally got into classical. I recently bought a Ramirez 130 Años, and I'm very happy with it :)

I always enjoyed classical music, but I was somehow oblivious to the rich history of classical guitar. I logged onto my Spotify and added every playlist I was able to find.

I'm really a beginner at this point and I'm so far doing basic Carulli stuff.

I hope to be playing Capricho Arabe within the month. Haha but seriously one day that'd be nice :D

Is learning notation pretty much a must in the classical guitar universe?

Thank you so much! I am very glad to be a member of the group and I am very much looking forward to this journey.

-Daniel

Welcome to Delcamp!

If you haven't already, please take a moment to read this page for a good rundown on how the forum works, rules, history, etc. You have found a great source of classical guitar knowledge, as we have a wide assortment of members, from beginners to performing artists, with a number of fine teachers, historians, and luthiers too. So feel free to ask any questions you might have, but consider using the search function first, as many topics have already been discussed at length.

If you participate in other online forums, you might notice that things can get pretty heated at times. Delcamp takes great strides to avoid that. Here is what Mssr. Delcamp himself has to offer on that.

It is important to note that there is a requirement to post an average of once a month. Members not meeting this standard may have their memberships terminated.

Adding your location to your profile is a nice touch. Many of us have made new friends from doing just that.

Again, welcome to the forum!

Regards,
