As a courtesy to the english speakers, could you please also provide a translation when you post a message in Dutch?

[Good tomorrow muzikanten. Ikvind it stretching to write once something in the Dutch language. It becomes differently all this way English achtig. A beetje English am possible I of course, however. Half-measure firstly will try I this way. My question is if there many people from the Netherlands visit this site? I have been aroused curiosity. Gr.]

The answer is yes, I think that there are several dutch-speaking members on the forum... :wink:
This is an example of a bad translation :P Butt still it is quite good looking at the fact that youre from miami!!

Tokkelaars messag actually was:

Good mornig Musicians!
It's exciting to write something in the dutch language.
Else it's gonna be so english like in here!
Of course i can speak a little bit of english. But first i'll try it this way!
My question is do a lot of dutch people visit this site?
I'm quite curious!
Greetz.



And youre answer is quite right! There are enough dutch people visiting this site! like myself!

Hello Astaroth,

We have a vast number of members from different parts of Asia and I am sure you will gradually meet many of them.

Your English seems pretty good, so I am guessing that is not the reason you are finding it difficult to get into some of the discussions. You have not been playing classical music very long, if I remember correctly. Why don't you download some pieces from the Level 1 to 4 collection and do some work on those—then come back with your questions and you'll get talking to people in no time at all.

Best wishes, V :)

Hello Astaroth,

That's great! Remember, don't just play them and move on. Play them really well:

yepz! i make sure i know every single piece and i play them starting slowly until i can finally play the piece at the specified speed. however i tend to be quite reliant on the fingering "numbers" that accompanies the note which seems to be slightly cheating. will that affect my sight reading in the future?

Hi all.

Just a beginner's question. Would I have to play the material from this site on dreadnought strings, because I'm much more comfortable with steel string guitars.

Thanks.

Well, this IS a classical guitar site so of course the music is for classical guitar
You could play it some of it on steel I guess but mostly it should be played on nylon!
