Greetings from rainy Gent, Belgium

Post by GeertWil » Fri Feb 02, 2018 10:17 am

I am playing guitar for decades now. I used to play blues, folk and ragtime related staff, occasionaly stepping aside to classical music. In september 2017 I started to take lessons classical guitar in my home time (after six years of jazz guitar in the same school). The switch to classical guitar was much harder than I expected. As a blues and jazz player I was not very aware of tone production. So I played (and still play) quite messy. This is the thing I am working on for the moment.
I'm also transcribing etudes from Sor, Carcassi, Giuliani and Carulli in Musescore. I saw a lot of the etudes were not available yet in musescore, so I'm trying to fill in that gap.

Hello, rainy Belgium. This must mean you don't need a guitar humidifier? :-) The blues is something I touched on with piano, but didn't get far. I like the blues. (When you can't play, listen.) It's interesting to hear that playing classical is so different from playing the blues. Anyway, thank you for transcribing etudes! It's nice that you're among us.
