Greetings from a wet London

Hello from a rainy London...
I started playing the guitar about 10 months ago, and am now beginning to tackle UK grade 3 pieces. In a previous life, I played the flute to post-grade 8 and the guitar has come as an awful shock in terms of how much more difficult it is! I'm lucky enough to have a superb teacher who manages to combine boundless encouragement with a forensic approach to detail. And I'm part of a classical guitar meet up group, which is brilliant for meeting like-minded beginners. Looking forward to being part of the forum.

Welcome Fran, that's some progress in 10 months. I also play the dizi (Chinese bamboo flute) but it has taken a back seat and have concentrated on the erhu.

I've noticed that those who are skilled in one instrument, especially those who can read music, can progress a lot faster when they take up another instrument.

Remember Anthony Weller, please help. Contact myself or Aaron Green for details.

Welcome from a clear, cold, moonlit Kangaroo Island, where it's nearly midnight. I remember wet London. And dark, slushy winter London and also long-balmy-summer-evening London. Great city to live in for a few years. And for my sins I support Arsenal.
