Hello from "cold" Russia

Post by Anches » Thu May 25, 2017 10:45 pm

Hello everyone.
My name is Anches. I started to play the guitar 2.5 years ago, when I was 34. Sure it's pretty late to be a professional, but not too late to love classical music.
My guitars:
Alhambra 6 p cedar top
Sakurai - Kohno #10 DOM 1979. Spruce top
Sanches #1054 - Spruce top
Barcelona 1997 do not remember the model. Will look when come back to Moscow
I do not collect them. But work in two countries and have 2 guitars in each to not to fly with them. Part of my time i spend in Moscow/Russia being a doctor, and part of my time - in Riga/Latvia being a professor of Latvian University.
I am just on my way. I do not have a lot of time for music practice but i'm trying to do it daily at least an hour.

Hi Anches,

Welcome to the forum.

I just got back from Moscow last week. Spent a week there and loved it. Definitely needed more time. Great museums, parks, statues, arts... Fantastic tourist destination but I probably couldn't stand the crowds during the high season. I like to tell friends, it's like Paris but without the litter and stench of urine. Luckily it wasn't "cold" and the buskers were out.

Hello Anches,

You've landed in a great place to learn guitar.

I started 5 years ago playing western guitar, wasn't much suited for electric but liked acoustic guitars. I've become very interested in classical guitar after acquiring a Takamine classical and now I mostly pursue learning on it using the Delcamp lessons. I plan on acquiring a nice classical one day and this forum is helping me to decide what constitutes nice classical guitar. Oh yeah, I am 60 years old. Never too late to start.

1990 Takamine C132S
2014 Sakurai Kohno Pro-J

National Resonator Guitar
