Introduction and desire to learn

Post by Terry Conrad Martin » Sun Jan 13, 2019 8:46 pm

Introduction: I consider it a privilege to be able to play my classical guitar each day. I appreciate , respect, admire and praise classical guitar music and guitar players. I have a complete collection of vinyl LPs of Christopher Parkening and sample LPs of Segovia, Bream, Torre, Williams, and Niedt, plus more that I can not remember at the moment. My interest in guitar came from my father who bought me Chet Atkins records from the bargain basement department stores as a teen ager. As a old man of 66, I returned to my roots of the style of Chet Atkins, because I admire him as a musician and humanitarian. My instrument of choice is the classical guitar, because I can feel its vibrations in my heart as I play. Michael Mosely at UNC at Charlotte taught me classical guitar 1972-1974, independent study creative arts program. During my college years I also continued private lessons with Fred Nance of Charlotte NC. My father and these two instructors helped me develop a hobby that I have received much joy from. In closing, I praise the classical guitar makers that have a special gift to create instruments that enable musical expression possible throughout the world. My first custom handmade classical guitar was from W Ray Ledford, Shelby, North Carolina, in 1976. I no longer have the guitar, but hope some day to get another one, even though he has passed.

Noted: Thank you very much. Should anyone have the transcripts for Six Variations on a Theme of Luis Milan performed (1962) by Re De La Torre, I would like to obtain a copy. My personal guitar teacher was friends with Re De La Torre and gave me a copy in 1972. Unfortunately, I misplaced it and have not been able to retrieve a copy through the usual channels. As I am retired now, I have more time to enjoy and practice guitar

Welcome Terry. I suggest you start a new thread with the topic of the piece you are seeking. If it exists someone will have it for you.

The composition you are seeking was copyrighted in 1955 by Joaquín María Nin-Culmell (presumably the composer or arranger). It will not be in the public domain until 2030. Until then, you will have to buy it from the publisher or a distributor.
