Hello from rural Shropshire

Post by Scarlatte » Sat Aug 24, 2019 8:57 pm


Classical Gas played on the stairs of a shared student house was my start in classical guitar. I had never heard or seen anything like it. The guy playing taught me the rudiments and helped me buy my first guitar, a B&M which I still hold dear. That was 30 years ago. I cannot believe the repertoire of exquisite music available to guitarists. I have only very recently discovered the wonderful transcriptions of Scarlatti's sonatas. If anyone happens to know if K551 exists for guitar, please let me know !

I am also very keen to find a tutor, but this isn't at all easy. Unless you know differently ...
