Greetings from the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan

Post by Montabella » Sat Oct 13, 2018 12:33 am

Hi, I'm glad to have stumbled upon this website.
Okay, so a little about myself, I started playing classical guitar when I was about 14 years old. My oldest brother had a classical guitar and he taught me a few chords and scales and I was hooked. I worked my way through his books and experimented on my own. Before I picked up the guitar I have been playing the viola since I was around 10 years old years. I continued to learn both, the viola through the public school system and into college and the guitar as a self study with books, audio recordings and over the last couple of years with the surplus of information available on the internet. Over the years I have played the guitar on and off again. Then seven years ago I picked up playing the ukulele, which lead to learning to play a guitalele and that lead me right back to playing the guitar.

I'm looking forward discovering more about performance and playing. Thanks!

[side note: I just wrote this because I couldn't find my previous introduction post that I wrote a few hours ago.]

Welcome to Delcamp!

If you haven't already, please take a moment to read this page for a good rundown on how the forum works, rules, history, etc. You have found a great source of classical guitar knowledge, as we have a wide assortment of members, from beginners to performing artists, with a number of fine teachers, historians, and luthiers. So feel free to ask any questions you might have, but consider using the search function first, as many topics have already been discussed at length.

If you participate in other online forums, you might notice that things can occasionally get rather heated. We work hard to keep that from happening on Delcamp. Please read Mssr. Delcamp’s thoughts on the subject.

Please note that there is a requirement to post an average of once a month. Members not meeting this standard may have their memberships terminated.

Adding your location to your profile is a nice touch. Many of us have made new friends from doing just that.

Again, welcome to the forum!

Regards,

Thank you oski79 I'm really looking forward learning more and improving myself and expanding my knowledge about anything relating to classical guitars. If I make some new friends here along the way that is just a bonus for my experience

Hi CathyCate, Thanks for letting me know about the Plymouth location for the Classical Guitar Society meetings. It would be great to meet some fellow classical guitarist in person. I will definitely check the website out and try to see if I can make a meeting. Thank you so much :)

You are in luck. The next meeting is Sunday the 21st of October. If you cannot make the meeting, contact the president Brian or newsletter editor, Charlene. Getting on the mailing list might keep you informed about future meeting dates. Just a thought. :wink:
