I have been playing the guitar for almost a year and my interest in the guitar came from reading a play that featured a character who played the lute. While a lute seems out of reach for me, I decided to take up learning more about classical guitar. I began taking lessons in spring of 2016 and am just learning how to read music. My experience with the guitar is very limited right now. I enjoy exploring and researching songs, composers, history, and styles on the Internet.
Before the guitar, I took violin lessons via Suzuki method at 5 years old and gave up the violin around 12 years of age just as sheet music was introduced because I found it difficult to learn and read during lessons growing up. I adore the sound of stringed instruments and am now in my early thirties. Today, I'm highly interested in the Matteo Carcassi method, classical Spanish composers like Sanz and Sor, Flamenco music, and Baroque era music.
I'm currently learning how to play a novice version of "Greensleeves" and "Nada Te Turbe."
Thank you for having this forum for knowledge sharing. Happy New Year!
