hello all from New York

Post by mcote » Fri Feb 09, 2018 3:47 am

Happy to be a member of this site! My name is Michael, I am an adult (senior) beginner on classical guitar. I have been teaching myself for about 18 months, primarily with the Noad book and many internet sites, etc. Progress has been slow, but I try to practice about 2 hours a day. I have no prior musical background other than beating up a defenseless acoustic guitar with a few chords prior to starting classical. Not sure how much I'll be posting at first, but I am sure I will be exploring the site every day. That's about it for now, thanks!

Welcome to Delcamp!

If you haven't already, please take a moment to read this page for a good rundown on how the forum works, rules, history, etc. You have found a great source of classical guitar knowledge, as we have a wide assortment of members, from beginners to performing artists, with a number of fine teachers, historians, and luthiers. So feel free to ask any questions you might have, but consider using the search function first, as many topics have already been discussed at length.

If you participate in other online forums, you might notice that things can occasionally get rather heated. Delcamp takes great strides to avoid that. Here areMssr. Delcamp’s thoughts on that.

Please note that there is a requirement to post an average of once a month. Members not meeting this standard may have their memberships terminated.

Adding your location to your profile is a nice touch. Many of us have made new friends from doing just that.

Again, welcome to the forum!

Regards,
