My Cordoba has a nitro finish. I'm using Savarez's New Cristal Corum 500 CJ, a high tension set, and have been pleased with the resonance and projection. The bass string really sing. The guitar arrived with a set of these on it. I liked them so much, I bought 12 sets from Strings by Mail when they were on sale. I just put on my fourth set yesterday, since I really can't get any good practicing with my broken M. It's starting to grow out, but not fast enough!
Are you diving into the rest of the D02 music, other than the monthly assignments? I'd love to learn and play it all, but I barely have time for the assignments.
I am quite shocked Cordoba put nitro on their top of the line guitar rather than french polish. Nevertheless, I don't think you will have any sound disadvantage since you've used Savarez Corum HT set. I know it sounds great but too harsh for my both hands.
I've played most of D02 already and I find it isn't only hard, but also easy. I do wanna master each level because I don't wanna come back and learn the technique I skipped or I ignored again. Not sure about my sight reading is good enough to advance to next level. I mastered well D01 IMO with certificate. Surprisingly, D02 wasn't hard when I started.
I understand and admire you are doing all 3 levels because everybody have a different way of learning, and your sight reading is good and you are confident you can follow those lessons. I wish I can do that for myself. You will find more time to enjoy CG as big as your heart grows for it.
P.S. Multivitamin & vitamin E will help your nail grow bit faster.
