I took classical guitar lessons when I was young, 8 I think. I was taught music theory and classical guitar mainly using F. Carulli's Metodo Completo and F. Tarrega's Modern Method. I'm now over 50 and I think I still have my old music books.

I also have the guitar I bought when I was in my early teens. It's a Di Giorgio Amazonia No 30 made in Sao Paulo Brazil. I had saved and saved before I could afford to buy the guitar and I really loved it and was proud to own it. Unfortunately some years later it got damaged. I carelessly left it propped up against a wall and left the room ...crash... I ran back only to find the heel was completely snapped in two. My dad tried to fix it but it never could keep it's intonation from that point on.

Studies, work, marriage, kids... Life happens and although I did make a number of attempts to pick it up again I just found it too hard to find the time.

Now I'm ready to give it another try. Better late than never!
