Seasons greetings from moody London

Post by Guitarcroc » Sun Dec 24, 2017 11:43 am

And I mean moody right now. God is playing in a minor key.

I've recently started playing guitar again. It's been a reasonable gap (around 5-6 years) but even so I'm surprised at how much manual dexterity I have lost. I originally started as a small boy but stopped classical lessons in my teens so I could more onto the electric. That was fun, but I found the amount of boxing I was doing meant I could't really spend too much time on the guitar. (Also, hands often sore).

I've decided to go back to the classical guitar, but this time without a teacher.

I also need to *purchase* another guitar. I picked up my old steel string last night, tuned it up, and worked through Lagrima. It took an embarrassingly long time to manage it, my left fingers are sore and when I try playing properly with the right (e.g not just P) it sounds even worse.

Right now, my goal is to just start from the beginning and slowly work my way up until my fingers do what my brain tells them.
