Greetings from South Carolina, USA

Post by adamk » Thu Nov 29, 2018 8:21 pm

Hello all,
My name is Adam and I'm delighted to find this community. I've been playing classical guitar since 2002, studying music at the University of South Carolina. After graduating, I still enjoyed playing classical music, but my focus as more on writing folk and rock as I started playing gigs in coffee shops around the area. I have an Alhambra 7P. A few of my favorite composers are Brouwer, Domeniconi, and Tarrega.
Cheers
Adam

Welcome, Adam. You come from a great guitar program with Christopher Berg. I hope you enjoy your Delcamp experience.

Welcome to Delcamp, Adam! This is a wonderful resource for guitarists.
You mentioned your interest in Domeniconi's music. If you haven't already seen it, check out Franziska Henke's performance of "Schnee in Istanbul" on YouTube. Absolutely stunning.

Best,
-Jim

Professor Berg is a great teacher. I got to attend several of his performances in the Columbia area. Thank you for your welcome!

Thanks for your recommendation! I couldn't find her version, but i did listen to a few other versions. Lovely piece. Here is the piece that got me interested in Domeniconi. Variations on an Anatolian Folk Song. Great version here.
