Greetings from Stockholm

Post by MaritoNelson » Wed Jul 26, 2017 9:37 am

Hello Guitar friends!

My name is Mario and I am originally from Montevideo, Uruguay. I lived in Sweden for 33 years. I have played the guitar for exactly 3 years now. It all started out that I wanted to play reggae because I find that type of music relaxing and I also like to sing. For technical reasons I started to play some classic music. And the misstake I did was to start with Tarregas capricho arabe. Very hard piece and I ended with hurting my wrist, so i changed to some easier pieces, like Adelita, lagrima, romance, scales and plucking chords. I like Latin American folklore very much.

Im self-taught, and I have a lot to work on. Specially hard I find it to play pieces that I don't get the "feeling" for, and there aren't a lot of classic music that is in my taste. I am a big fan of Barrios - Mangore, but his music is extremely demanding for my experience even though I play 8 bars of andante religioso and prelude saudade, 5 bars of Julia Florida and 4 bars of Estilo Uruguayo. Resently I found a piece thats written by Jose Luis Gonzales with is called "Amor Profundo" The sad thing is that I haven't learned to read music notes, I only read tabs and watch videos. I have the notesheet and if anybody is feeling kind to translate it in to tab :)

If anything just ask! I want to learn and share! Have a nice day!!

Best regards,

Thank you very much guys! Yes I also learned now to do proper warm up and stretching. And one thing that is very helpful is lifting small weight excersises.
