Greetings from the Sunshine State

Post by markw51 » Sun Jan 28, 2018 2:29 pm

My name is Mark. I have been playing guitar in various forms since I was a child. I'm now retired working as a part time tour guide.

I took classical guitar lessons for about a year from a teacher in Baltimore who graduated from Peabody in Baltimore. I wish I could remember his name but that was about 30 years ago. That's the only formal training I have in classical. I was working at WBAL radio at the time. He had a great sounding guitar from a luthier in California I believe. If he's on here please send me a message so I can say hello.

Since then I have played other forms of guitar but always go back. I'm also a five string banjo player - bluegrass style. How's that for a dichotomy?

I just bought a used Cordoba Fusion 14. That decision was made now that I'm trying to learn how to play Sevilla. Tradition is nice but no way I'm going to be trying that tune without a cutaway. For the past couple of years I've been using a Yamaha flamenco guitar but it sounds dull and muddy. This Cordoba sounds a lot clearer with nice separation between the notes.
