Hello from Los Angeles

Post by edhohoho » Sat Oct 27, 2018 3:41 am

Hello all,

My name is Edmund, I have been trying to teach myself guitar since 1991, but due to time constraints from school, postgraduate training, and now work, I am forever a beginner due to my reliance on tablature. Player of random riffs, master of none.

I started on a steel string acoustic but eventually moved to electric guitar, and eventually stopped playing for a couple years at a time until recently when I've picked the guitar back up and have been trying to learn again during my career transition.

I really enjoy playing my Ibanez Daytripper as it is a small body, short scale acoustic guitar that actually sounds decent for quiet, impromptu practice sessions. I think I've mellowed out a little and all but given up on trying to be a shredder on the electric guitar and have had my interest piqued by the classical guitar sound and beautiful yet technical music I have seen people play online.

I'm looking forward to learning a lot from this forum and its members as I search for my first small body, short scale classical guitar.
