Hello from Lawrence, Kansas, USA

Post by mark b » Thu Mar 30, 2017 1:33 pm


I am learning to play classical guitar, starting late January this year. One of my hobbies is woodworking, and I would like to get into making acoustic guitars. While learning what it would take to make guitars, I decided it would be nice if I could actually play at some level too. At least in the beginning, I've decided to learn without an instructor, and I've been using Frederick Noad's "Solo Guitar Playing Book 1", and Hal Leonard's "Classical Guitar" for instruction. I spend around 1 - 1.5 hours a day practicing, and am having a lot of fun in the process.

The other day I was reading a book review on Amazon, and a reviewer mentioned this website, and that's how I wound up here. This looks like a great place, and I'm happy to have stumbled in here.

Hello Mark, welcome to the forum! I have used the same two tutor books as you and I too try to spend 1 hour or more a day for practicing. Good luck with guitar studies!

Hello, Mark, and welcome to Delcamp.

The Noad book is an excellent method book. You've probably already discovered Mass Street Music in Lawrence. If not, check it out. Great people, great guitars and a great resource for you as an aspiring luthier.
