Introduction

Post by string_lerner » Fri Oct 12, 2018 7:38 pm

Hey yall,

I am looking to learn classical guitar and was directed here from reddit (r/classicalguitar).

I currently play the bass guitar, piano, and am a total novice on the guitar. I'm most interested in the classical style, and this seems like a wonderful place to learn new skills, have clear direction, and a community to share triumphs and challenges with.

I plan on starting with D01 (unless there is a better place to begin).
Happy to answer any curiosities if there are any.

Warmly,
Lerner

Oh wonderful, Dank je Erik!
So I should peruse some of the threads and post a couple messages in order to gain access to levels 1-3?
I presume this is a good place to start for a beginner?

Hi Lerner, and welcome!

In answer to your question, you should now have access to the D01-3 scores. If you can't get lessons locally from a teacher, you may be interested in trying the online lessons here, starting at level D01. You'll find more information about them in the Lesson FAQs. You can either register to participate in the classes and exchange feedback with other students (after fulfilling the conditions at the beginning of the Registration topic), or you can just view the lessons as an observer at your own pace and practise by yourself. Either way, you should pick up some useful guidance to get you off to a good start.

Best wishes,
Geoff
