Hello from Canada

Post by Mollbarre » Sat Jan 12, 2019 2:38 am

Hello! :bye:

I am new to guitar! I have a teacher I can book occasional lessons with to keep me from going too far astray, but am puzzling a lot of the basics out on my own. I play other instruments - including mandolin.

I am interested in a little of everything. The playing of course, but also the history, music theory and the instrument itself.

I'm hoping learning to chord will also help fill some gaping holes in my understanding of theory.

I started with a full size classical guitar, but found the fingerboard too wide, so I just got a crossover (yes, sacrilege, I know). Huge difference! I am progressing quickly! Now I have 2 guitars I can't play! :lol:

I hope this forum will help me find answers to my current and upcoming questions.

Welcome to Delcamp!

If you haven't already, please take a moment to read this page for a good rundown on how the forum works, rules, history, etc. You have found a great source of classical guitar knowledge, as we have a wide assortment of members, from beginners to performing artists, with a number of fine teachers, historians, and luthiers. So feel free to ask any questions you might have, but consider using the search function first, as many topics have already been discussed at length.

If you participate in other online forums, you might notice that things can occasionally get rather heated. We work hard to keep that from happening on Delcamp. Please read Mssr. Delcamp’s thoughts on the subject.

Please note that there is a requirement to post an average of once a month. Members not meeting this standard may have their memberships terminated.
