Hello from Worthing, UK

Post by Teatimerob » Tue Feb 13, 2018 12:04 am

Good evening esteemed classical guitarists. I have decided to join your club in the hope of learning the guitar.
My wife bought me a classical guitar last year to prevent me from becoming bored and senile in my retirement, so, I gathered together educational material from various sources;
• The library
• Udemy
• Amazon
• Youtube

Then suddenly realised learning the classical guitar can be a costly business!
I would like to have a classical teacher for professional lessons but there doesn’t seem to be one near where I live.
Thankfully I discovered your website and the educational material of J S Sagreras.
Presently I’m working my way through the first book and am up to lesson 10.
Can anyone suggest a program guide/schedule/ milestone for working through this magnificent opus?
I will keep you posted on my progress :bye:

Hi Simon
thanks for the tip. I will search for Norbert Neunzling on youtube.

I did find some material by another guy, Gianfranco Summa and the link to his performance is as follows;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UFNU89 ... WUVSPJlojE

If anyone else is keen on Sagregas then this may be of use to them

Cheers

Hello again Simon,
I searched youtube for Norbert Neunzling Sagreras and found his excellent performances.
Fellow students can find them in the link as follows;
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDR3sLu ... C754C7320C
I wanted to save the material for classroom use when not on the internet.
To do this I downloaded the playlist using a program named ‘Youtube Byclick’
I can now save them to my ipad for reference.
:merci: :bye:

Hello Teatimerob. Welcome to the forum.

Along with a few hundred others, I shall be visiting Worthing during the first weekend in March for the British Banjo Mandolin and Guitar Federation Festival (BMG for short). There are concerts, workshops and competitions galore.The BMG website is the route for more information. It is too late to enter the competitions, and many (but probably not all) workshops will be full. Nonetheless it may be interesting for you to drop by, see what is going on, and perhaps meet some local guitarists. :discussion:

Welcome to the forum.
I'm sure you will find a teacher and a warm welcome at the West Sussex Guitar Club, just along the road in sunny Bognor.

Welcome from further west along the coast 8)

There certainly are teachers within a reasonable distance, go along to West Sussex Guitar Club as Les suggests and ask! Getting some lessons would be the single most important thing you can do.

Not at all biased :oops:

Classical Guitarists, I have now progressed to lesson 23 in Sagreras book one.
Can someone advise me if bar/measure 6 is a typo error.
The first note ‘d ‘ has been tagged as open string 0 and not fret 3.
thanks :bye:

Hi,
thank you for your mindful study of the Sagreras Lecciones.
Concerning Sagreras "Las Primeras Lecciones", #23:
The published version obviously doesn't contain some corrections that have been made in the meantime.
Lesson #23 should like like this:

Hi again,

when you study the Sagereras "Lecciones", you will find a rather big step forward when
moving from "Primeras" to "Segundas" which are significantly more difficult. One possibility to bridge this gap might be
studying the Delcamp volumes D02 and D03 after finishing Sagreras "Primeras".
But you'll find many musical gems in the following Sagreras "Lecciones" volumes, not only "plain" study material.

Bernhard
