I met classicalguitardelcamp.com when I googled "the most difficult classical guitar piece ever written". I clicked a link from the site (which was viewtopic.php?f=4&t=54995
) and started reading the answers. After ten minutes, I had very satisfactory answers from professionals and learned the names of many pieces, composers and performers that are unknown to me. It is a long list but I will only mention that listening to "24 Caprichos de Goya" from Kazuhito Yamashita made my day. In short, I recognized I could learn lots of things about classical guitar here and decided to join the site.
As for me, I'm a novelist who not thinks but feels very strongly that "without music life would be a mistake". Ages ago, I learned to play some simple chords and sing along like most teenagers do. I also learned to play a few very simple classical pieces. That was enough for me (which I now realize one of the biggest mistakes of my life). All my life I've had a classical guitar but it was only to play for my friends occasionally. Now at 50, I've got very serious about playing well (I have no clue why I have this urge
If I say I could play the 1st part of "Romance", that may be an indicator of my skill level.
I also play the accordion and I'm much better at it than the guitar.
My main goal is to understand how western classical music works (its theory, history, philosophy, esthetics etc.) and I believe learning to play the guitar well will deepen my understanding of music as a listener.
That's it for now. Thanks for reading.
