Hello from Kentucky, USA

Post by Rich.Agire » Sun Sep 27, 2015 1:21 am

Hello

I have taken CG lessons off-and-on for about 30 years. Am currently working on pieces I love ( Sor, Carulli, etc) and learning from Jason Vieux on Artistworks web site. I take cello lessons from a teacher who is a professional musician in Cincinnati, so I keep very busy with learning. Btw, I am 56, so it's never too late to learn an instrument!

I read notation and love to learn a new piece. Have owned a 1969 Hernandis guitar ( Bought it off a consignment rack about 25 years ago - got lucky because it has decent sound and the intonation is OK). Just purchased a Córdoba C12 cedar limited and love it! I will post a review for one of my first posts.

I will end with a saying my cello teacher uses a lot: " It's the process...not the progress", meaning, learning to play an instrument, no matter how poorly you may sound, is a great accomplishment and an excellent way to keep your mind young.

Looking forward to learning from you all

Rich :bye:

Hello Rich. Welcome to the forum. As an adolescent my elder daughter took cello lessons and I always loved the sound. She gave up, so I cannot play duets with her. :(
