Hello from Philadelphia

Post by rziffer » Wed Dec 05, 2018 11:33 am

I'm a 68 year old guy and fell in love with classical guitar about 4 years ago when I became spellbound listening to a classical guitarist play in an urban park near me. For the past 31/2 years I've been taking Skype lessons with Bill Kanengiser (absolutely amazing experience). After starting with a used Cordoba I bought on e - b a y, I've just bought a new guitar, a Youri Soroka, with the expert guidance of staff at Guitar Salon International. I'm excited to get to know it and to become part of this community. I've a background in piano and am interested in attempting to see if I will be able to take composers/performs I like and adapt them to guitar (Keith Jarrett - contemporary classical music, for example.
