New to classical guitars

Post by Ozzzy1 » Fri Aug 16, 2019 2:14 am

I'm a retired air traffic specialist from Canada and I'm not a trained guitarist, but I enjoy playing. Having recently come into the possession of a 'no name' classical guitar (beautiful woods but no label) I'm trying to do well by it. The flat, wide fretboard was daunting at first but one learns. Hopefull I'll learn more here.
