G'day from Melbourne


G'day from Melbourne

Post by jasonquick » Sat Aug 19, 2017 2:10 am

Hi everyone

My intro!

I just purchased a classical guitar... love it, and looking forward to learning.

I come from a family of high end musicians... too bad I didn't take their advice earlier... while I had a crack at guitar and other instruments when I was younger, I'm now 44 and consider myself a complete novice... although it's never too late.

I grabbed myself a La Patrie Concert. I love it. And yes, my eeny weeny hands have me worried. I was originally looking for a 7/8 in solid wood, but the price for these in Australia was more than my novice budget.

Anyways, cheers for reading.

Jase in Melbourne, Australia.

Welcome! 44 sounds pretty young and low mileage to many of us. Never too late is the right attitude. Keep your left thumb behind the neck and your small hand will accomplish big things.

G'day jase and welcome. And good on you for taking the plunge. The good news is that if you're a

complete novice then your work there is done and you can move on to study other things. This is just

the place for you. Learn On ! :D

Cheers, martinardo (from s.w. vic.)
