Hello from Philadelphia!

Post by voodooman79 » Mon Nov 06, 2017 2:44 pm

Hey there—

My name is Daniel and I am a high school music teacher in Philadelphia, PA, USA. I primarily teach pop music (think school of rock) but I do have students that get bitten by Bach or Beethoven on the piano, and most guitar players love to play some classical as well as distorted guitar riffs.

I've been playing for about 30 years now, and have recently (almost two years) begun studying classical on a regular basis at The Classical Guitar Store. I have a guitar (the name is escaping me right now) I picked up in Spain in 2010 in Cordoba for about 1000 euros. She's a beauty and I love her, and I don't regret carrying her around from hostel to hostel for 8 weeks...not one bit, haha

I look forward to engaging with this community.

All the best,

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!
