Hello from Cardiff, UK

Post by jastew » Tue Mar 21, 2017 5:36 pm

Hello I play a Taurus 56 Classical Guitar from Barcelona which I purchased from the Cardiff Spanish Guitar centre years ago in 1971 when in my early 20s. I took lessons from the centre for a few years and practiced avidly. However work pressures eventually prevented me from continuing to play. Since I retired 5 yrs ago, I have taken up playing again. I has been more challenging now that I am much older but I am very fond of playing (re-learning) the music of Tarrega and Bach. The guitar - (probably an apprentice piece ... made in the workshop of) has a lovely tone.
Regards, John Steward

Hello John. Welcome to the forum. Your story is similar to mine, though I never really got off the ground all those years ago. But retirement is a great time to start over. Nowadays the resources available to help compensate somewhat for the effects of age.

Hi John Croeso!

Good to see someone relatively local, your story reads a lot like mine, picked up the guitar again in the last few years, unfortunately work is still getting in the way nevertheless I am enjoying it.
Loads of stuff to to work through and discuss on this site, plenty of help from other players everywhere if needed.
Best of luck
