I am delighted to have become a member of this Classical Guitar forum. I have been playing guitar all my life and am delighted to be still playing at 65. My guitars consist of a Gibson 335, 93 Strat Deluxe, Takamine tc132sc and a '74 Sezuki G150 Spanish.
I have been playing all styles. However in the past 6 months I have taken up classical playing. So far I have played Virgilio, milonga, Choro (Pernambuco my first piece) Naqueles Velhos Tempos,
Julio Florida, Danza Paraguaya and currently I'm struggling with the stretch in Choro da Suadade. Love playing these pieces. I am looking g to buy a good arrangement of Casino Paradiso. I bought the Takamine after visiting a friend who plays classical professionally. He passed on the above pieces to me. Thank you. Joseph.

Welcome to Delcamp!

If you haven't already, please take a moment to read this page for a good rundown on how the forum works, rules, history, etc. You have found a great source of classical guitar knowledge, as we have a wide assortment of members, from beginners to performing artists, with a number of fine teachers, historians, and luthiers too. So feel free to ask any questions you might have, but consider using the search function first, as many topics have already been discussed at length.

If you participate in other online forums, you might notice that things can get pretty heated at times. Delcamp takes great strides to avoid that. Here is what Mssr. Delcamp himself has to offer on that.

It is important to note that there is a requirement to post an average of once a month. Members not meeting this standard may have their memberships terminated.

Adding your location to your profile is a nice touch. Many of us have made new friends from doing just that.

Again, welcome to the forum!

Welcome Joseph!
The stretches at Choro da Saudade can be dangerous, take care!
