Greetings from Canberra, Australia

Post by Maurice » Mon Sep 11, 2017 1:19 am

I've been playing the guitar since I was 10 (40 years ago). I played in a few rock bands when I was younger but never been without a nylon string lying around somewhere. Although I had formal lessons for a few years I have successfully been teaching myself bad habits since then :) . I would now like to correct these bad habits so I can play more beautifully. After all this time, I really still feel like a beginner. I really only like playing short and simple music from my old guitar book and still get them out occasionally to learn something new.

Welcome to Delcamp!

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!
