Greetings from Belgrade, Serbia.

Post by Radovan Milanovic » Sun Jan 27, 2019 5:40 pm

Hello, mi nombre es Radovan and i'm 26 yo, from Belgrade, Serbia.
I just started to play a guitar and am very interested in learning music theory further, also techniques and everything that would help me in my research and playing. I play maybe for 5 or 6 days for now :D I'm feeling very nice about this, everything is coming into place and I think i'm learning fast.
I had a guitar for years now, but I didn't play it. I guess I wasn't ready for it. I even think I wanted to start but somehow didn't know with what to start.
For now I learned 4 scales and how to make them, making chords major, minor, sus2,sus4.. intervals, caged system, some universal rules and tricks when searching for a note on a fretboard, some chords progression and that's it for now. I'm very motivated about this and can't wait to start learning more.
I played some instruments before this like handpan and percussion's mainly like djembe, 22" frame drum, kalimba, etc. But I did not get much into the music theory, I played "intuitively" ... now I see how beautiful is when you actually move your as* and learn something new and get out of the comfort zone. Im happy for my new attitude!
I play western acoustic guitar but I really want to buy new classical guitar and thinking of Takamine TC135C. Maybe you guys can share your thoughts about it? (link for the demo of the Takamine). Hope my wife wont get angry with the price :lol:
If you can suggest with what I can start from this point with theory and techniques, I would be very glad to consider.
That's it from me for now.
Cheers
Radovan

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

Also, the classes here don't seem to teach basic music reading, or some basic info about beginner Classical guitar use. You may want to supplement the lessons here with extra reading/explanatory/pictorial material. I like the very popular "Solo Guitar Playing" book/CD series by Frederick Noad (includes teaching how to read music, and detailed explanation of technique). Noad gets you quickly into playing some musically pleasing practice pieces. You may also want additional explanatory/instructional videos. I like the free ones at https://www.thisisclassicalguitar.com/lessons/ (includes teaching how to read music, and detailed demonstration of technique). The Noad is my favorite of the 4 beginner approaches I've examined, but they all offer something unique and valuable. I use Noad and the classes here, supplemented with articles/videos from thisisclassicalguitar.
