Greetings from Memphis ...

Post by Shadowbelle » Tue Jan 15, 2019 7:51 pm

... in spite of living in the Home of The Blues, I'm studying classical guitar. Okay, I'm studying classical and blues. My classical guitar is a Cordoba C10 parlor, cedar top. For blues work, I have an older Washburn dreadnought (WD35S) -- spruce top, mahogany neck, tamo ash sides and back. Both are lovely instruments.

I'm an Older Person, also employed full time, so my guitar time is limited. I look forward to gaining the benefits of community knowledge, interest, and opinions!

Welcome on board.

Whatever about blues a lot of people here will think of Lily Afshar https://www.memphis.edu/music/fac-staff ... shar-l.php who is one of the leading guitarists of here generation. Well worth a listen to and maybe you will get lucky and find her doing a concert in the region.

Thanks for the heads-up! Just checked -- Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music is only a few minutes from my home, and she'll be performing there in February (7th Memphis International Guitar Festival). And others! "Lily Afshar hosts international guitarists in the festival. Guests are: Andrea Dieci (Italy), Iliana Matos (Mexico), Nicholas Ciraldo (USA)."
