Greetings from France

Post by janspreen » Sat Jul 13, 2019 2:42 pm

Hello everybody,

I am a dutchman who has been living in France since 1982. I have studied the classical guitar at the Sweelinck conservatory in Amsterdam, and in the south of France with Lucien Battaglia. However I have completely abandoned guitar playing in 1986 when I became a computer programmer. But since 2016, largely thanks to my wife, I am playing again and very happy to do so. Some recordings can be found here:

I found this forum while searching a William Lawes duo for 2 guitars. I have the Bream sheet music somewhere but I can't find it....

Greetings from Cornillon Confoux,

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 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 members have made new friends from doing just that.
