Hello from Vienna/Austria

Post by fyrkrans » Fri Sep 13, 2019 5:41 pm

Hi, I started to learn to play the guitar a couple of weeks ago with the help of Noad's SGP1. I learn by myself, in part for financial reasons, in part because I prefer to do things on my own.

It's the first instrument that I learn, oddly enough I was never interested when I went to school. A few months ago I met somebody when I was traveling who was playing guitar all the time. He seemed to have such a good time and that's how I became interested. He mostly played other sorts of guitar though. The reason I started with the classical guitar is simply that I had access to one. (My father gave one to my mother as a present about 20 years ago. Since she doesn't play she was happy to give it to me.) I wouldn't want to trade however, even though I might try to learn other sorts of guitars in the future as well.

Is there a general thread about Noad's SGP book(s)? When I searched I didn't find one, but maybe I overlooked it. If there isn't what would be the most suitable sub-forum for such a thread?

edit: fixed typo and clarified something

Hi,
Welcome to Delcamp! I was in Vienna studying German at the University of Vienna for 6 weeks in the summer of 1969 - 50 years ago! I was 17 at the time and did not learn much German - too much partying instead of studying!.

I still have relatives in Vienna and in the Burgenland district. "Janish" or "Yanish" was the nane.

Anyway, I have hardly any cartilage left in my hands and also had 10 surgeries on my right arm so I have not been able to play very often.

Again - Welcome!
Bill McGarry

No, there isn't a specific topic concerning Frederick Noad's books, but using forum search for 'Noad' shows that his books and his arrangements have often been discussed. If you wanted to start a general thread about his Solo Guitar Playing books Public Space might be a good place or (if you want to focus on Noad's views about technique) then Classical Guitar Classes might be better.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

@Bill: Interesting that you went to Vienna to study German. It strikes me as a rather odd choice. I glad you enjoyed the city though! My father actually moved to Burgenland a couple of years ago.

@Eric: Thanks, that helps a lot.

Hi fykrans. I lived in Vienna in 2002 for my college study abroad. What a fantastic city!
