Hi from Siracusa - learning to play


Hi from Siracusa - learning to play

Post by lomo » Sat Dec 22, 2018 12:29 am

Hello to every guitar player here, I am Santi, the humblest of the humble players.
I am 55, accountant or bean counter by trade, after a hiatus of almost 40 years I picked up again the guitar, right now I am looking for a teacher in my area (Siracusa, Sicily, Italy).
I do not want to take short roads, I would like to learn from scratch, reading musical notation and solfeggio with the aim to be a player, not a concert or a professional player but a player that knows what he is doing.
I bought Raimumndo Bossa Nova 3 and am doin scale excercises and don't know if I got what in english is called a "lemon" but as much as I like the sound of the guitar it is impossible to keep it in tune for more than 3 minutes.
Being so unexperienced do not know what else to say to introduce myself, I am reading avidly the thousand of posts of all the people in the forum that plays and has been playing for so long and love it.
well, hoping to be welcome I promise not to get in the way of all the professionals who are aroubnd here.
my best regards
to every forum member.
