I started playing classical guitar last year. I'm primarily interested in the 20th & 21st century repertoire, but I'm not uninterested in its roots. To be honest, I'm learning as much to help myself listen better to music as to play; I don't have a performance goal particularly in mind. Also, as a teacher, it's good to be in the learning process. It helps develop empathy with one's students.

I did a year of History & Form as part of my undergraduate degree. I have signally failed to learn violin, piano, and harmonica on previous occasions.

I have a nasty feeling I will turn out to be one of those people who plays the notes but misses the music :desole: Hopefully not

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. 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 occasionally get rather heated. We work hard to keep that from happening on Delcamp. Please read Mssr. Delcamp’s thoughts on the subject.

Please 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!
