Hello from Texas!

Post by Phillip_H » Mon Mar 27, 2017 7:10 pm

My name is Phillip Hintze, and I have been playing guitar for about 25 years. I have a degree in music theory/composition and I studied classical guitar in college, but I haven't really played classical in a while (I usually play electric). In college, I played a lot of the Carcassi/Sor etudes, a ton of Brouwer (estudios sencillos, Elogia de la danza, danza caracteristica...), Koyunbaba, etc. I was/am really into late 20th century classical (Bartok, Stravinksy, Shostakovich), so I gravitated to that kind of guitar literature.

I teach middle school orchestra and it occurred to me that I don't really have a classical instrument anymore. I recently bought a Cordoba C7 (spruce top, Indian rosewood back/sides) and have been playing a lot. Mostly relearning the old stuff that I had previously learned, but I started digging into the Bach lute suite in E major yesterday, and I'm thinking about starting the Walton Bagatelles.

Anyway, looking forward to getting into this forum!

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!
