Greetings from Ohio

Post by Quinbus » Fri Jan 25, 2019 1:18 pm

Greetings All,

I'm a life long beginner. I work a lot and am not located in a convenient place to access a good instructor. I tend to go a few years with regular effort and
then fall off for a while.

I previously spent a lot of time reading this board and gathering a treasure trove of helpful information. Unfortunately I had to put things on hold for some career changes.

I'm now back at it. I just ordered a Cordoba C10 that is to arrive today. I'm very anxious to get back in the swing of things.

Aside from my enthusiasm for this instrument I doubt I have anything to add to the wealth of experience on this board. My greatest contribution is likely to be asking questions so that others have a chance to share their knowledge :)

Wonderful place.

Now, off to work. I'll post the required follow up asap.

Location updated.

I might also mention that the reason I've ordered a new guitar is that my wife (a true musician and teacher) took my Loriente Marieta away from me after I let it sit, neglected for the last year or two. A great guitar that I basically could afford but didn't deserve :)

I'm hoping to earn the right to borrow it from her. I'm also hoping that the Cordoba C10 was a good choice for now. <fingers crossed>

Welcome Quinbus. You might want to check Claasical Guitar Corner Academy in-line school. I’ve really enjoyed my time.

If you're interested, there are free Classical lessons here. You can get feedback on your progress from other players. If you take all the courses, it's the equivalent of 6yrs of music school. If you take the optional final exams, apparently it has official status in France, and would count towards your entrance requirements if you were to apply to study music there. The forum for the classes is: viewforum.php?f=41 . The post about registering is: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=54023 . And the FAQ about the course is: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=62687
