New from Switzerland

Post by robithinker » Tue Jan 09, 2018 12:21 pm

In the early oughts, I played classical guitar for a year, practicing everyday, and with a teacher weekly, before developing carpal tunnel syndrome. I took a break for a couple months and went to physical therapy. I moved to Switzerland shortly after my wrists had healed and did not pick the guitar again. I'm returning to the guitar now with the hopes I can avoid any further wrist problems. I played saxophone for eight years, so I can read music. Generally speaking, music, and certainly now again, classical guitar music specifically, are two of my biggest passions. I have pulled my (very) old Yamaha beginner guitar out of the cellar, bought new strings and am close to booking a teacher. I have bought some introductory books on technique and printed some public domain exercises to begin with. Started practicing again the other night and am excited about the road ahead. These forums are a valuable source of information and I look forward to contributing and reading as things progress. Take care.
