From Texas, USA

Post by JMtruong » Sun Oct 22, 2017 3:34 pm

Hi members of Classical Guitar,
I would like to introduce myself. JM Truong. I started learning, playing classical guitar 50 years ago (Yes, fifty years). I stopped playing it when I joined the army and after that got lost into daily busy life until I retired few years ago. Surprisingly, when I first tried playing one of my favorite piece again after decades without touching the guitar, I found that I was still be able to play the entire piece, of course not as smoothly as when I was young :D . But at least I did not lose the skill. . . I am not a Luthier but I did make a classical guitar by myself from scrash. It took me six months to get it done. It looks beautiful, but I made a little mistake: The strings were to close to the frets. I am trying to figure out how to fix it. . . Some of my favorite pieces: Cavatina (Stanley Myers), Study in B minor (F. Sor), Murmures (Linnemann), Feste Larianne (Luigi Mozzani) . . .
