Welcome Mike! Sorry to hear about your recent injury. May you have a steady and speedy recovery. If you share your specific location, your new classical guitar comrades (local and abroad) are more than likely to chime in with much helpful advice re: lessons and guitar shopping. All the best. :chitarrista:

Sorry to hear about your injury.

You can learn even with an inexpensive guitar. There's a forum here for guitar buying advice. And there's a free course of instruction on this site, as well as threads about good books for self-study. I'm working from the books Modern Classical Guitar Method by Stanley Yates, and Solo Guitar Playing by Frederick Noad.

About the free course here...you can get feedback on your progress from other players...if you take all the courses, it's the equivalent of 6yrs of music school. If you take the optional final exams, apparently it has official status in France, and would count towards your entrance requirements if you were to apply to study music there. The forum for the classes is: viewforum.php?f=41 . The post about registering is: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=54023 . And the FAQ about the course is: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=62687
