Hi! I'm a classical guitar player from Recife.
I've played the instrument for twenty seven years now.
For the first five years I was self-taught, piecing together what I could from listening to classical, instrumental and "choro" LPs, from books, and from watching TV programs. For the next five years I've had the privilege of being formally instructed on a bi-weekly basis by a professional violinist (Classical Guitar was his third instrument, and I surpassed him in technique in this instrument before the end of these five years) who was very knowledgeable about music theory.
I'm also a music bookworm and have taken advantage of every instructional video by one of the masters of the instrument that I could find.
I play other instruments too, but none nearly as well as the Classical Guitar. I'll play anything from Bach to Villa-Lobos, so long as I think it's good music.
My previous guitar of 20 years has recently gotten damaged and I'm currently playing a Yamaha C40M which I just bought as a stopgap while I save enough money to buy a new guitar somewhere in the range between a Córdoba C9 and a Yamaha GC32S.
