Hello from Missouri!

Post by AaronF » Sat Nov 03, 2018 2:25 am

Hello, everyone.

I've found my way to this forum often lately as I've been searching for information and figured I'd register and say hello!
I've been playing for around a year. I've done some work through Allen Matthews' website and then moved to local lessons where I'm just about done working through with Parkening's first book. Working on the version of Jesu, Joy... right now and Edson Lopes' little bit from the f minor harpsichord largo.

I've played piano for a long time and played upright bass in orchestra when I was younger, so the guitar wasn't entirely new to me.
I have a cedar Cordoba C7 I've been playing with D'Addario normal tension and just got in the mail today a used Spruce C7 to play around with so I might figure out which way I want to go when I get a luthier made guitar a couple of years down the road.
I'm especially attracted to baroque music on the guitar, though I've enjoyed several pieces I've learned from outside that period as well.
A couple of more advanced pieces I especially look forward to learning when I'm ready are Bach's cello prelude from the first suite and anything Couperin, especially Barricades. Hearing Ben Verdery's version of Barricades on youtube first made me interested in learning classical guitar. I play the piece on piano. I find myself listening to Edson Lopes and Rob MacKillop on youtube a lot, and I listen to Paul Galbraith most of all.

The spruce C7 came with Savarez high tension, which I'm going to try to play with for a couple of weeks, but they don't feel good to me just yet. I want to try low tension next.

That seems like enough for now. Thanks for having me! I look forward to continuing to learn a lot here.

-Aaron
