Hello everyone! It’s my first time on the site (I heard about it in an Amazon review of all places). I’m 30 and started playing guitar when I was around 11 or 12. I started out like many and wanted to be the next big metal head shredder, and eventually got introduced to classical as a means to increase proficiency, accuracy, speed, and build style, but fell in love with
I had to put down my guitars for a bit during college and always meant to pick it back up, but life happened and unfortunately it got put on the back burner to things like marriage, children, work, etc.
Fast forward to now, and I’m recovering from open heart surgery and have plenty of time to do nothing, so it seems like the perfect opportunity to relearn a lot of stuff. I’ve been going back through my Parkening methods and have a few other resources (Segovia scales, the 20 Sor Studies transcribed by Segovia, a couple repertoire books, and some scores I’ve printed out from the internet-some Bach stuff, etc.)
I’m mostly self taught but also took lessons for about 2 years, but focused really heavily on theory in my lessons.
I look forward to learning with everyone here!
