Greetings from Finland

Post by oaks » Sat Dec 22, 2018 3:34 pm

I came here to "restart" guitar seriously after few wasted years. I was a member of this forum for a short while, but it was many years ago and my old account is gone now.

I started practicing guitar seven years ago, just before I turned 30. I reached grade 4 in three years, but then my progress stalled. I am musically very gifted, but physically untalented for guitar. I tend to pick up bad habits even when working with a teacher. It's quite frustrating.

In the beginning, after one year of private lessons, I was accepted to a conservatory. It was quite exceptional, as they usually take only children to study lower grades. While enrolled to the school, I also had music theory lessons and played in various bands. I had to leave my position when I moved to another city for work.

Now I'm at about grade 5 level. For the last three years, I haven't had a teacher. I haven't played daily and I have had few long periods of not practicing at all.

My plan is to start with Delcamp study material, 2-3 grades below my level. I want to focus on my techique and get it right this time.
