I’ve been playing the guitar since I was 12 years old. I used to be a serious player in my 20s and 30s copying fingerstyle pieces played by Leo Kottke, Werner Laemmerhirt and others during that time. Then, after a long break I took classical lessons for a couple of years, basics as well as some baroque pieces or temporary stuff composed by David Qualey. Then, unfortunately, another break for a few years. Then at some point I started playing Celtic fingerstyle DADGAD for the most part. I had an amazing teacher, Jens Kommnick. All that happened while I was living in Germany. Here in the United States I haven't met any musician yet. When I came across Elite Guitarist I thought this would be a great opportunity to get back to where I was or at least closer. So I bought a Cordoba Hauser* and here I am looking forward to learn some of the amazing stuff I've found on this site.

 

* At least I can't blame the guitar for any glitches. :)

    Hello, Elite community I'm excited to learn this wonderful music. I took Class Guitar in college 5 years ago and I showed promise but after tragedy struck I no longer could continue but now I'm back and ready to learn and perform it all again. Thank you Elite for creating such wonderfull content.

    Hello! My name is Blake and I just picked up the guitar again after about a year. Work, kids and graduate school took just about every free second I had, but here I am once again. I am a huge fan off all types of music but classical seems to call out to me the most. I really look forward to learning from all the tutorials on this site and love what I have seen so far. Moving forward I have a few questions about practicing. 1. I have been a member of the site for about two weeks and just finished the beginner tutorial. Should I now begin the intermediate tutorial? 2. When should I begin the beginner repertoire? I look forward to learning from everyone here. -Blake
