I am a classical guitar novice, but I have owned and played various acoustic and electric guitars over the years. I've become more enamored with classical music as I grow older, and so I took the plunge, found a teacher and recently began my first formal guitar lessons at age 50. I purchased a used La Patrie Collection model as my first classical guitar and am enjoying the challenge of learning and daily practice.

I found this forum to be very helpful in navigating my purchase of a classical guitar, and that's what brings me to join today. Currently, I'm working my way through Volume 1 of the Parkening Method book. Cheers :!:
