Hello from central Montana

Post by Mr Bigglesworth » Sun Dec 16, 2018 6:43 pm

Hi all, New member here. Have been lurking for a few months and felt the need to get involved in the lessons. Playing a little more than a year. Have taken lessons from two instructors and had to back off playing due to wrist pain. Ended up buying a nylon string Yamaha and holding it in a classical manner (hope so anyhow). The wrist pain has been absent for a few months now. I really enjoy the theory of music and most genres. Our local PBS radio station has an incredible variety of music at nights. Late starter in life, 57 yo, loving it all.
Thank you, MikeB

Hi Mike,

Welcome to the forum. I am also new to the site and getting back into classical guitar on a more serious level. I'm in Wyoming and just wanted to say Hi.

You can get free feedback on your technique from other players if you take the free classes on this site. If you take all the courses, it's the equivalent of 6yrs of music school. If you take the optional final exams, apparently it has official status in France, and would count towards your entrance requirements if you were to apply to study music there. The forum for the classes is: viewforum.php?f=41 . The post about registering is: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=54023 . And the FAQ about the course is: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=62687
