Hello from Minneapolis

Hi all,

I'm a fifty-something guitar player who started playing guitar as a teenager. My early interests were exclusively directed at jazz improvisation until about ten years ago when I decided to try classical guitar. I don't think I appreciated how big a challenge learning to finger pick was going to be, but now, ten years later, I have some minor proficiency. When I started, I took lessons for a short time with a neighbor who plays classical professionally and teaches at a local University. From him, I learned to make a good sound, care for my nails with sandpaper, and begin to learn some pieces like the Bach cello prelude in D, and some Tarrega. I'm currently working on Julia Florida by Barrios and Bach's Prelude from Partita for Lute in C Minor, BWV 997.
