Hello from Newcastle England!

Post by Carl170 » Sun Sep 20, 2015 9:15 pm

Hello everyone.

I am a new classical guitar student in Newcastle England. I am from an electric guitar background and have started playing classical guitar about a month or so ago. I have wanted to learn classical guitar ever since I saw a BBC documentary about Rodrigo in about 1992, but never knew where to start. From the program, I first heard of Pepe Romero too. I have been playing electric on and off for about 25 years now with a big gap between 1999-2008. However, I think I am enjoying classical lessons more than I have ever enjoyed electric lessons. I would also love to pass a grade 1 music exam and hope to work towards this sometime.

I am taking lessons with Carlos Amador, who is originally from Spain and lives locally here. I chose him as he covers a few different styles and seems very relaxed when teaching.

I am interested in many classical pieces. Asturias is one of my favourites, maybe because the arpeggios sound were ripped off by many of my favourite electric guitar players (particularly players in the 80's!).

Thats all for now.

Regards

Carl
