Musician first CG player second?

Post by malc laney » Thu Mar 30, 2017 3:31 pm

I wonder how many people would use the above description of themselves ? many of us started music early on , piano lessons , playing in bands etc..then morphed into CG.Or put another way are there some who have ONLY played CG?

Clarinet first to grade 5, then electric & nylon acoustic, then FG and CG once I hit my thirties.

Music lover first (Pink Floyd in quadraphonic on my old man's hand built hi-fi! Lots of other types of music too ;-)

Started with CG at the age of 6. Tried some saxophone for a short while and obviously other guitar styles (I do also have an electric guitar), but it has always mainly been CG. So I can't say I have ONLY played CG, but it's definitely number one for me :)

I morphed from steel to nylon. I was told that I was born dancing and therefore have always had a love of music, for those of us who play, perhaps we were born as musicians looking for a means of expression.

I started with Piano lessons then it was all downhill from there (woodwinds, brasswinds, mandolins.) I've almost ceased playing these instruments. The constant companion was CG.

I started with the CG as an instrument, since it is the same instrument for pop/folk music here. Started more towards choro music, but from the beginning a teacher who recommended some classical exercises and pieces to practice. As I've discovered it, I started moving more and more towards the classical repertoire. For classical I don't mean a specific period, but overall concert music. In parallel I started playing some electric rock guitar, but I soon gave up it since I didn't have time to practice both things, so I decided keeping only one focus.
