Hello from Florida

Post by Richard Bosten » Tue Jan 22, 2019 2:33 am

Hello to all the fellow guitar enthusiast. I have been playing guitar off and on for around 30 yrs. I mostly played rock , blues and popular music.
I played the trumpet through middle school . I have studied some music theory years ago. My musical taste run pretty broad these days. I listen all sorts of music. I just got my classical guitar a week and a half ago and it has really impressed me. I was trying to play some classical scores on a folk style guitar while i was waiting for my cordoba c-5 to get here. So far the only classical piece i can play through is study in c (tarrega) . I did use tab for that but it is the last time. I am able to read the music but its slow going for now. I think it should start to get easier after a modest amount of time/work. MY goal is to be able to site read at a reasonable level. My right hand is already getting used to strings. My nails are almost at a good length i think. My thumb nail is sort of short because i cut it wrong. I did get some nail files so i will see what i can shape up.
I have tons of questions already in my head so im sure i will be posting and reading often.
