I took private lessons three years ago and stopped. My teacher was unpleasant so I dropped the lessons. I've picked it up again and am enjoying my progress. I guess that means my guitar is decent, as I don't have to fight the action.
I have all my notes and the book he sold me with his notations so I'm enjoying learning again. I've actually gotten past where I left off even though I'm doing it alone. Thinking about taking more lessons..... ?
I have a second hand '79 Kamouraska Concert/Etude (Canadian pre-Godin/LaPatrie) and posted my questions about it (with a photograph) in the guitar purchasing help threads. (I have my eye on a Cordoba C10? if my interest stays pricked. dunno.)
Thanks for letting me post!
