Greetings from Netherlands!

Post by samards » Sun May 26, 2019 8:10 pm

Hi everybody,

I've just registered after many years just reading this forum and trying to find a new guitar for me...

I live in Netherlands, and played classical guitar since 30 years ago... First three years taught by a guitar teacher, and then self taught. I was pretty much obsessive player, trying to practice at least one hour a day. But after I got kids, it was too much for me and I completely stopped playing. I forgot almost everything, and when my kids were a bit grown up, I accidentally opened one drawer and found my old scores... I could not remember a thing, even when I looked at the scores, only what I know was that I enjoyed playing those songs so much :)

So, I realized suddenly that I developed a huge gap in me by not playing, and realized that I must start again to fill it in somehow.... Slowly started with old pieces, rediscovering them again... I must say it was and still is a great experience, playing something after 10 years, with a new life experience that I got in between... I started playing a bit differently, now more musically, then here is Youtube, finally I could see how those songs should be played... I'm discovering something new all the time.

For example, I even didn't know that there is a 2 strings trill (with right hand), I was always doing it with left hand, and it was such a a pain, specially in some baroque pieces... Now I play pretty much differently, applying skills seen on Youtube :)

I have an old hand-made guitar from Ernest Koroskenyi from 1974, beautiful sound but... I always liked Ramirez sound and played recently Ramirez 1NE. Liked that specific sound a lot, but I was a bit surprised how light the guitar is in weight, specially in comparison with my Koroskenyi... So now my idea is to see and investigate which one from Ramirez would be the best for me at this time...

Cheers everybody!

Hi Erik, many thanks for the message, my initial idea is to get and share opinions about certain guitars, but your score collection could be very interesting as well....
