Really enjoyed this. I'd never seen him play as a young man. Thanks!

Jose and I both had the same classical guitar teacher here in New York. He was a concert guitarist named Harold Morris. Interestingly Jose and I both had the same problem. We were both self taught, and we both had become proficient players doing everything all wrong because we were self taught.

I went to Harold because even though I was playing at a high level I just sensed that something was wrong. During the course of getting me straightened out he mentioned to me that he was working with Jose to fix the same problems.

I believe Harold had studied with Alirio Diaz at Santiago de Compostela.

Hi Ramon,

Very interesting story. Thanks for sharing. I am still a student, never really achieving a high level of playing (yet..haha)....just loving to play what I can. Maybe no matter the level of expertise, we are forever learning, a wonderful process to be sure. Did you ever get to play with Mr. Feliciano?

Hi -

No, I met Jose several times, but circumstances were such that I never got to play with him. The interesting thing about Jose is that he is an accomplished classical guitar technique player, but is also a highly accomplished steel and electric player.

Over the years I have faced the identical situation from the other end - as a teacher. I have had numerous students who were self taught, and I have to spend a certain amount of time undoing everything they are doing wrong or not doing at all.

As for your playing, yes, you can and should derive plenty of pleasure and enjoyment playing whatever you can. And don't be afraid to occasionally try something a bit above your level. As Robert Browning said in "Andrea del Sarto" the poem, "A man's reach should exceed his grasp." Or a woman's.

Hi Ramon,

I will keep your encouraging words in mind and put them into play. It is wonderful to have a good teacher. I was fortunate to have a good teacher for almost six years. I learned so much from him and his lessons have served me well.

I'm sure your students will appreciate all they learn from you.
