Good day from Toronto!

Post by countrybluespicker » Tue Jun 27, 2017 2:49 pm

A warm hello to all fellow guitarists. A little about me - I've been playing guitar for about 25 years. I learned guitar first as a campfire chord strummer, then moved on to learning how to fingerpick simple folk styles, then country blues and chord melody jazz. Lately as time has gone by, I have found myself increasingly drawn into the orbit of the classical guitar. I have always had a nylon string guitar kicking around the house and have always loved "the sound", but in the last couple years I decided to try to learn how to read music and have been teaching myself using the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM Canada) Guitar Series. I am presently completing book 2 and previewing book 3. One thing I am really looking forward to is improving my technique and tone. I am really enjoying this music and its seemingly infinite styles, varieties, and challenges. :D
