Greetings from the state of Wisconsin

Post by Mara Fortune » Tue Oct 03, 2017 12:32 pm

I've been musical all my life, and have dabbled in various instruments such as piano, oboe, voice, and even did a short stint in a handbell choir. Though I've had a steel-string acoustic guitar since college, I've never really played it much in the 15 years I've owned it. Several months back it occurred to me that the reason I didn't really play my guitar was because I'd never had a lesson and didn't know how to do much more than strum some simple chords while singing. So I went online to find some beginner guitar videos, and ran across a classical guitar tutorial which was easy enough for me to follow. By the time I was done with that tutorial, I knew: classical guitar was my instrument. I've played almost every day since then, and after 7 months of playing on a steel-string, I finally managed to scrape together the money for an inexpensive classical instrument. :D

So far I'm completely self-taught, as I can't afford lessons, but I'm excited to join the Delcamp community and learn more. I'm currently working on Gymnopedie No. 1 (Erik Satie) as well as music by Carulli and Bach.

Happy Playing!
