Greetings from Lyon, the city of love

Greetings from Lyon, the city of love :lol:

I'm rather a bad guitar player. Everything is relative of course. I'm better
than 10 years ago when I started up and better than 1 year ago, so all in all it's not so bad I guess.

I was taught the basics by a friend of mine. He tought me a great deal of theory, but not much of practice, hence ever since I have always been more interested in theory than practice, something I try to balance more and more.

I spent quite some time playing the electric guitar. Had some fun at that, but but over time realized my love was for arpeggios, decyphering partitions, and not for the special effects, the power chords and so on. Classical guitar is the simplest formula for me so a few years ago I decided to sell all my electric equipment and buy a decent spanish guitar.

Last piece I learnt was Miguel llobet's El noi de la mare, found on It took me about 2 months (of not so hard work, I only play 3-4 evening in a week), and I feel like to work on others. As time passes, I feel always proud of something if I have learned to play a piece on the guitar, it doesn't this for a lot of things in life.

These days I don't listen to a lot of music anymore, I still like neutral yet atmospherical moods, like some Brian Eno or Vangelis albums.

Anyway, this should do for a first message!
