Hi,

I'm a 72 year old retired Engineer. Rocket science ain't all that hard. It is a matter of delving into it and loving what you are doing. I suspect the playing guitar is exactly the same. I'm enjoying the lessons. Thank you. There is so much beautiful guitar music of the ilk you are presenting here. I love to listen to Ana Vidovic. She is inspirational. I see you have lessons for Leyenda, Cavatina, La Catedral (Prelude, Andante & Allegro), Lagrima, Spanish Romance, ... I look forward to learning all of these or learning them better. I know that it is so helpful to put myself under the stress of performing from memory. I'm not very good at it yet, but your lessons are stressing the dynamics, the position of the left hand over the body, techniques for plucking to produce varying shades, and other techniques I have not encountered yet. I see you have "Intermediate Technique Package" and "Tremolo - A Comprehensive Approach." I look forward to going through these in detail. You all have studied and know how to do the technical things with your hands. I still have problems with left hand finger strength, collapsing fingers, fingers dampening strings that should not be dampened, doing barres so that the finger joints aren't a problem in tone quality. Do you have advise on how to strengthen my left hand, barres, and get better reach with the right hand (There is that one place in Romance where finger 4 is stretched so far). I know "practice, practice, practice" keeping in mind that "practice makes habit."

I'm looking forward to following your teaching.

Welcome! I'll leave the advice to the experts. I love Ana's playing too - i wish she would include Canada in her tours. We look forward to hearing you play!

    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
