Hello from Pennsylvania

Post by sal » Thu Jan 05, 2017 12:46 am

Hello I am a professional woodwind player, and have been teaching myself the classical guitar. Been working in the Shearer, Noad, Parkening , and lots of other etudes- I originally started playing the guitar to "have fun" playing rock and country, but realized quickly that classical was where I wanted to go. I am pretty obsessed with the guitar, and my ultimate goal is to play the Chaconne 10 years after starting. Got a year and a half in, I might actually pull it off. :D
Bach is my favorite, but have been enjoying learning the music of many composers who I did not know of until playing guitar, i.e. SOr, Guiliani, Carcassi, Tarrega, Barrios, etc-

Welcome to Delcamp!

If you haven't already, please take a moment to read this page for a good rundown on how the forum works, rules, history, etc. You have found a great source of classical guitar knowledge, as we have a wide assortment of members, from beginners to performing artists, with a number of fine teachers, historians, and luthiers too. So feel free to ask any questions you might have, but consider using the search function first, as many topics have already been discussed at length.

If you participate in other online forums, you might notice that things can get pretty heated at times. Delcamp takes great strides to avoid that. Here is what Mssr. Delcamp himself has to offer on that.

It is important to note that there is a requirement to post an average of once a month. Members not meeting this standard may have their memberships terminated.

Adding your location to your profile is a nice touch. Many of us have made new friends from doing just that.

Again, welcome to the forum!

Hello and welcome from a former PA native.
What can this strange device be?
When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
It's got wires that vibrate and give music
What can this thing be that I found?
