greetings from Puerto Rico

Post by Guthier » Tue Dec 11, 2018 9:20 pm

Greetings from Puerto Rico

I'm not a guitar player, as a matter of facts I do not play any instrument at all. Guitar playing is my near future as part of my plans for retirement. This will be a two fold objectives project: first will keep my mind active and secondly I hope will provide some enjoyment. I think this forum will be a wonderful place to get acquainted with all topics related with the classical guitar and make some networking.
My particular interest as I progress is in the Brazilian jazz, but initially concentrate on the basics and to get a teacher.
I know this will be a long term commitment and that I will need persistence, perseverance and commitment.
I really appreciate the opportunity to get to this forum

Welcome to the forum and good luck on your journey! Lately I've seen many people mention the "keep my mind active" aspect of playing as they get older. I had never really considered this extra benefit of CG study but find it very cool!

Hi Guthier,
It's never too late to start playing the guitar. I hope you find it to be an enchanting experience for you.
