What a joy to know that we are the same age!
I started my classical guitar studies with Graciano Tarragó in the year 1960, sometimes I received lessons from his daughter Renata.
I interrupted my guitar studies when I obtained the title of Commercial Skilful and continued those Mercantile studies in Germany, but I did not finish them due to military service (they sent me to Africa with the Legionaries). Other unfinished studies. Then my brother got me a good position in Lloret de Mar, 1967, and here I am for 52 years. But I studied and finished Tourism, and obtained the title of Tourist Business Technician (... I started the studies married, with one child and I finished them with two children already.) Then I finished my guitar studies at 53 years old working in two places at the same time, with three children and at 53 years old. Really everything has been a great sacrifice but, I am in this forum to learn things from people like you. I assure you that every day I learn new things, because I will always be a simple guitar student. All that I explain is with sincerity. And since I am speaking to you of sincerity I will explain an anecdote to you. In Africa, Sidi-Ifni, when the soldier finished three months of exercises, left the camp and was assigned to the barracks.
In the barracks they had beds, dining rooms with a table and chairs. I spent all the Military Service in the camp, latrines ... etc .
My only happiness is that I was able to give a guitar concert to General Trobo Larrasquito. Possibly that concert helped me to endure all the miseries, without forgetting the latrines!
As you can see, not everything has been a path of roses.
By the way, since we are the same age, we also did the Military Service the same year, I hope that your destiny was better than mine.
Receive a warm greeting from Lloret de Mar, Costa Brava.
