Hello from Czech Republic,
well, a few you things about me. The classical guitar is one of my main hobbies. I´ve started to play when I was almost 17 (in 1991 when I fell in love with my beautiful classmate) - besides growing of cacti and succulents, more than 50 cannadian blueberries, taking care of a large garden, studiyng history nuclear welfare and life of scientists, English history, exploring high quality tea, photography, translating). And, of course, I have to spend a lot of time with our seven years old daughter and my wife. Also try to play on Hatun Charango. Don´t ask me where I find time .. I do not know it myself :( .

Besides of 2 year of studing by Czech quite important teacher Zdenek Dvorak, I´m autodidact...

On classical guitar I play mostly my own compositions - my specialty is trémolo with use of all five fingers of my right hand :) . I have created more than 20 compositions. I dream about buying software programe Guitar Pro to be able to present my compositions to the world-free. But suporting family takes a lot of money so I try to be very patient. But in recent 2 year I try also to study new compostions (like José de Azpiazu - tremolo version of Ave Maria, Pachelbel´s Canon, and now, for children at first grade at schol - Beauty and Beast- because in the end of last year I played for children in school - amazing experince and I want to repeat it). My biggest challenge was Chaconne id d-moll BWV 1004. Anyway, J.S.Bach still is my the most favourite composer.

I work as a methodologist of General Directorate of Customs in Prague.

Five years ago I had to interupt playing the guitar because of troubles with my nhands - well, I it didn´t improved much but I try to enjoy every day I can play ...
