Hello, greetings from miami.

Post by Harold1991 » Sun Feb 04, 2018 6:04 am

I’ve been googling and led back to this site quite often, so I decided to join and here I am. I’m Harold. I’m 27, and a complete guitar/music beginner at times.

I’ve been messing with electric guitars and learning what I can learn by listening to very simple punk rock riffs as there are 1,000’s of somewhat interesting and artistic bands in this genre, and I simply love it more than all the other rock genres. People say punk is terrible but some could say a lot of 60’s bands were proto-punk as well. I listen to a lot of music, but play poorly, tabs never made sense to me other than monkeying what it said, and recently I decided to change that.

Less than a year ago I started to buy music books and tried to teach myself theory every day with some understanding, but decided I was still not on the right path to successfully playing the guitar. So, what could I do? I ran into a friend of my father who is an amazing guitar player and does lessons. We talked and he agreed to give me lessons under the condition that I have to progress or he won’t waste his time. I’ve been on this journey so far, for two months. I love practicing guitar now that I have a teacher and I had never had a nylon string before, either! I’m here mostly to search for questions I have to ask, or ask myself, learn as much as I can from others, and be immersed in the classical guitar culture for the first time.

I hope to learn to enjoy this instrument and learn as much as I can. If I become a better musician for it, I’ll be happy.

You've done a good thing; getting lessons. It's good to have someone who's knowledgable see what you cannot.

My story is similar to yours, I've been playing 40 years; rock and blues. 10 year break and came back to classical and now have a teacher.

I'm enthusiastic but very much a beginner.
