New Classical guitar enthusiast

Post by Ausangate » Sun Dec 02, 2018 7:13 am


I am so glad that I find this board with so many members and resources. I am not talented quite the opposite, probably clumsy. I love the guitar and the idea of making music. I have returned to the guitar many time during my 50+ years; I am in one of the periods of dusting off the instrument an reigniting the fire -- a good sign.

Time to make new friends, chase old/new dreams... play the guitar.

Thank you for the opportunity and looking forward to the experience.

Welcome Ausangate. Studies suggest reaching your potential is more about “deliberate practice” for a long time than it is about talent. If you can maintain persistence this time, I predict good things. This forum can help.

Good luck!

"Not talented"? "Clumbsy"? Can't be worst than me and I am not saying that just to sound humble. But I love it anyway and people who can't play tell me I sound good. Poor things. Go for it. And there are some very easy things that are beautiful.
