Hello from beautiful Victoria, BC

Post by palosanto » Thu Jan 31, 2019 9:43 pm

Hi everyone,

I've played guitar all my life. I studied classical for 5 years in Barcelona, Spain and after a few years I studied flamenco with several teachers in Madrid and Jerez and I've been playing exclusively flamenco for about 25 years.
I live in Victoria, BC where I'm very involved with the wonderful local flamenco community .
However, being retired now I have 'lots of time' so I've been slowly taking an interest with classical and 'undusting' my old repertoire.
I own 3 Jeff Sigurdson flamencas: a blanca, and spruce/indian negra and a special negra with spruce top and Coral back and sides. All great instruments.
I've owned and sold over the years a Bellido, Conde negra and Pedro de Miguel negra.
Looking currently for a Ramirez 125 anos or R4 to get back to my classical music.
I'm happy to be part of this learn from all members.
2018 Jeff Sigurdson flamenco blanca SP/CY
2009 Jeff Sigurdson flamenco negra SP/Coral
2011 Jose Ramirez 125 anos
