Hi from New Jersey US

Post by MiciDragon » Sat Dec 08, 2018 9:45 pm

Hi,

My first contact with guitars was through a shopping window in Poland back in the late 1980s. There was a beautiful 12 sting acoustic in dark red for sale. I think that we went to see the guitar more than 5 times together with my grandfather and we could never decide on it. Good was that, after all 12 stings acoustic isn't really something for a kid.

I have been taught classical guitar in a local musica school for approximately 1 year and then put the guitar down for 25 years or more. Since I don't have any accordion with me here in US, I went back to classical guitar. My main interest is to play sweet classical pieces and at the moment I continue from where I stopped, somewhere at the end of Parkening's first book. Got his second book and I really look forward to dive into those pieces.

Took me a while to get a guitar but I finally landed on a Yamaha CG172SF (to my great surprise). This little box has matte finish which I really like and it is really responsive with the side effects that it brings with it. I thought that I might get into Flamenco one day but I am not sure about that anymore.

I felel excited by joining this forum as I find the information here very valuable.
Talk to you soon.

Until next
MiciDragon

Welcome! If you're in New Jersey maybe look up the guitarist Seth Himmelhoch. He teaches at the Thurnaeur school of music there and at a local college that brings in high level guitarists for a yearly festival. There is also the luthier Garrett Lee in Wayne NJ, who is great to know about and makes some wonderful instruments.
