I had just seen this group today so am joining as it seems like a great forum to expand my horizons in classical guitar.
As you can see, I'm currently living in Cuenca, Ecuador where me and my wife moved about a year ago. The music scene in quite vibrant here and the guitar plays a prominent role. Once a year there is a guitar festival with several concerts and workshops. It's not exclusive to classical guitar but several events are around the classical guitar (concerts, book reviews and workshops).
I started playing classical guitar in 1968 when a friend of mine gave me lessons at night in the air traffic control tower at the Stuttgart Airfield Air Force/Army base. Stuttgart, Germany that is . I played for 15 years after that and then the pressures of family and a full time job in IT raised their ugly head. It seemed that I was making no progress and in fact reverse progress so I stopped playing. For music, I joined local choirs as a first tenor (the highlight was 2 1/2 years singing with the Johannesburg Symphony Choir while I was on a project in South Africa. I retired at the end of that project and on my way back to Maryland, I stopped in Madrid and bought a Jose Ramirez classical guitar (130 años model). So after over 20 years of not playing, I'm now back practicing and have improved to almost where I was when I stopped. I'm also still singing in a choir (International Cuenca Choral). We just finished our Christmas concerts last week. It's great to be retired
