Howdy from Phoenix!

Post by Kashmir » Mon Nov 06, 2017 10:11 pm

Hello all! I'm a guitarist who lives in Phoenix, Arizona and I'm resuming my studies of guitar after pausing from the instrument for about two years. I've been playing actively for five years, save for a gap from 2015-2017, and started on electric guitar before moving to classical a few years ago. In the past I've taken lessons formally through university and may do so again in the future, for now I need to rebuild my technique.

My musical interests lie in Renaissance, Baroque, and Modern music (for the guitar) but I'll listen to and play just about anything. Currently I'm working on the Prelude from Cello Suite No.1 by Bach and then I plan on moving to a lot of Renaissance music. I dabble a bit in luthiery on my electric guitars and build furniture for a hobby, but I've never made the step to classical guitars yet. I look forward to asking questions and learning new pieces with the assistance of the forum. Thanks!

Greetings from a beginner in the west valley!

If you're not already aware of it, check out the Phoenix Guitar Society for an interesting opportunity to experience and share music. There's a website, a facebook group, and a monthly meet up. I've been to a few. They're fun, low key, and I like the folks who go. Incidentally, several who go to the meet ups are also teachers. Also, the website has a calendar of events that I try to keep an eye on. It's the most central place I've found to stay aware of classical guitar performances that I would otherwise miss out on.
