Greetings from Chicagoland

Post by Larry » Wed Jan 31, 2018 7:43 pm

I am a classical guitar novice, but I have owned and played various acoustic and electric guitars over many years. I found this forum to be very helpful in navigating my purchase of a classical guitar (used La Patrie Collection), and that's what brings me to join today. Currently, I'm working my way through Volume 1 of the Parkening Method book. Cheers :!:

Welcome!
Novice here also. I just bought a Yamaha GC22. I start my first lesson tomorrow, I can't wait!

If you haven't read the Christopher Parkening book "Grace like a River" I'd recommend it. It's sort of his story.

Thanks for the book suggestion - enjoying his method book but don't otherwise know much about Mr. Parkening. That Yamaha model looks sweet! Is it a cedar or spruce top? I was considering a Yamaha CG192 when I was looking, but found a good deal on a used La Patrie instead.

Hey Larry,
It's spruce. It's the first spruce top I've had, the previous couple have been cedar. Those La Patrie look good.
