Greetings from New York, New York!

Post by frerom » Sun Dec 24, 2017 1:14 am

Hi, I’m a swede from Stockholm, Sweden currently living in New York.

I’m an amateur who started taking lessons about 15 years ago, my last lesson was about 9 years ago though. I’ve kept playing since but basically without any progress. My biggest problem is that I have almost no theory knowledge, I’ve always learnt the pieces I’ve played by heart without really knowing what I’m actually doing. Although I can read musical notation in the sense that I know what the symbols mean it is extremely tedious to read a music score to me, as a result I often fallback to tabs. Another thing I wish to work on is my posture, it has degraded to a cross-leggged mess. Trying to use a guitar support, or worse a foot rest, results in back pain.

My reportoire consist of Bach, Lauro, York, Houghton, Nuemann, Villa-Lobos and more.

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,
