Hi (North Carolina)

Post by uee » Sun Dec 02, 2018 7:49 pm

I have been playing guitar for decades but only recently got interested in the classical repertoire. I'm mostly self taught and picked up some things here and there. I probably ought to get a guitar teacher to learn new things. Right now I'm in process of getting a newer classical guitar. I have an old purchased guitar made in the 70's that I cannot completely trace, one of the cheap line of guitars from Manuel Velazquez (I believe). Anyway that's a post for a later date.

Hi Yuhan,
Welcome! And enjoy your search for another classical guitar to supplement your Manuel Velazquez shop guitar. Where in North Carolina are you located? There is no shortage of interest in classical guitars in areas of North Carolina.
All the best,
Jack

Hi Yuhan,
I’m not sure what’s in and around Durham. However, in Boone, NC there is an annual Guitar Festival at Appalachian State; always well planned. And in Greenville, NC there is another festival (can’t think of the School name right this minute.
I met a Luthier from Enka, NC at a Virginia Guitar Festival who makes beautiful guitars. PM me if you’re interested and I’ll send you his information.
Thanks.
