Thanks Yisrael, I really hope I am able to advance without a teacher.
I hope I can rely on this forum as I relied on the Mandolin Cafe forum for years to learn the mandolin.
Larry my right hand is what I fear the most.
As for my left hand, I am just learning to keep my thumb lower (opposite to the violin and mandolin), that seems to be the only problem and I am sure I'll overcome it soon.
Have been playing for a week, Parkening, and got to study 19, where I find myself a little bit challenged.
Now the right hand issue raises a question, if I am getting a good volume, nice regular sound, doesn't that mean that I am probably doing something right.
Bill, I don't plan to teach the guitar, (maybe the mandolin). I play music because I really enjoy it. I just want to be able to play some Italian (classical) music. For the coming couple of months I am hoping to get to Carulli's andante. I think it's study 18 in his method (not sure).
Anyway, I'll soon upload something on youtube (and if I am permitted) I'll post it here and you'll be able to tell me if I am straying from the right path
