Hello Delcamp users. My name is Andrew, I live about equidistant from Rugby, Coventry and Leamington in the UK. I have played for many years and am of good amateur standard. I have recently taken up classical playing seriously again after a 5 year layoff and I would love to connect with like minded good players in my area. I have dozens of duets from Cardoso through Granados, some Argentine tango, a lot of Bach, etc etc. I'd really like to share this stuff, no pressure to perform concerts.

I have a lovely concert guitar, spruce and rosewood Torres-model by Steve Toon of Cheltenham.

Pieces I'm working on currently: Rodrigo, Fantasia para un gentilhombre; Torroba, Madronos; Bach first cello suite - just to give you an idea. I'm a worker rather than a natural, and I don't think I've ever performed anything error free in 43 years of playing - but I'm not bad, and my tone is pretty nice I think.
