Greetings from the Netherlands!

Post by Conquestadore » Thu Sep 07, 2017 5:28 pm

Hello all,
In January this year I was looking for a musical hobby to unwind after work and decided to pick up the guitar. I did play some guitar as a kid but never managed to move beyond power chords. I was very much into punk music at the time and mostly just strummed along to NOFX on my electrical guitar. I still have that guitar 20 years later but since my taste in music has changed I thought I'd give the classical guitar a try. After playing on a plywood guitar for a few months I've taken the plunge and bought a new one a few months back (Esteve 1) and it's been a blast to play. I've been self-taught this far but consider taking lessons since progress seems to slow and I imagine I've picked up lot's of bad habits along the way. Mostly I've been playing some beginner pieces like 1st and 6th etude by Brouwer along with greensleeves and Lagrima. In this forum I'm looking to get some structure behind my admittedly kind of random playing. I've been using mostly tabs and have been working on learning to read notes from the Noad book for about 2 weeks. I guess that's all I have to say for now, looking forward to learning along side y'all.
