I have always been in love with music, and fascinated with the way it is generated out of just about anything, as long as there is some music the player wants to share. And I have always been enthralled by the control a good musician has over the experience.
After the required music lessons we had to endure as children, I was happy to tap my fingers on tabletops, etc. But, always dreamed of learning to play an instrument well. A bit over a year ago, while winding down my pre-retirement project--five-year financials, etc., for a local bank, the thought of buying a guitar flashed into mind.
Got a steel string dread that sounds pretty good, although I am yet to make it sound that way consistently; and to meet my real love for guitars, purchased a second-hand Cordoba C7. This one has been subjected to the same self-taught chord sequences enjoyed by the first purchase, so it is difficult to say how it sounds as a classical guitar
Let's see how I can combine the lessons in this site, which, by just a quick look, appears to be chuck full of well-designed instruction and lots of marvelous resources, and other resources, such as personal instruction, to become a decent classical guitarist. I think a teacher will help undo any bad habits I have acquired over the last few months of Internet-driven instruction, and accelerate progress. Saw some of the comments on students' postings at the end of lessons and the comments were to the point, and very supportive. I am a bit behind that level, so I need to do some prep work before undertaking that step.
Thanks for having me. Look forward to much learning and the assistance of all of you.
