Greetings From Minnesota, USA


Greetings From Minnesota, USA

Post by JJRJR » Wed Sep 06, 2017 4:28 am

Hi! My name is Jim and I have registered here a couple of times but never realized there was a posting requirement. Thus my ID keeps disappearing. I have played guitar for 47 years, mostly a classical instrument, but primarily jazz, blues, and light classical styles. I was honored to see Segovia in concert twice in my youth and I still can't understand why my hands, which are the size and shape of his, can't produce the same magic on a guitar. Maybe a little more practice... Greetings to all classical guitar lovers.

Welcome Back, Jim! One post a month is all it takes!

If you haven't already, please take a moment to read this page for a good rundown on how the forum works, rules, history, etc. You have found a great source of classical guitar knowledge, as we have a wide assortment of members, from beginners to performing artists, with a number of fine teachers, historians, and luthiers too. So feel free to ask any questions you might have, but consider using the search function first, as many topics have already been discussed at length.

If you participate in other online forums, you might notice that things can get pretty heated at times. Delcamp takes great strides to avoid that. Here is what Mssr. Delcamp himself has to offer on that.

It is important to note that there is a requirement to post an average of once a month. Members not meeting this standard may have their memberships terminated.

Adding your location to your profile is a nice touch. Many of us have made new friends from doing just that.

Again, welcome to the forum!
