after enjoying the struggels with my wonderful new classical guitar for a few months now, I thought its time to join the forum and introduce myself. I've been playing a few chords here and there as a teenager, just the regular stuff and just enough to impress the girls at the campfire, but as a classical trained pianist and cellist who discovered his love for plugged instruments a few years ago, that was not enough of course. So I decided to get myself a decent classical guitar and dive a bit deeper into this wonderful world of beautiful sounds. I am a no-nails person though, long fingernails on my right hand is where I draw the line, and since I do a lot of woodworking (just began to build my first guitar...) and a lot of climbing and bouldering in my free time, they wouldn't survive anyway.
I love the website and the teachers, most pieces I learned so far are done by Tavi and I must say, he is a wonderful and inspiring teacher and reminds me a lot of my cello teacher, who played a crucial role in my developement as a musician and as a person. I am looking forward to everything that will happen here on this site and wish you all the best!
Hello Marcel: I have enjoyed the site so far and have decided to subscribe at the end of the trial. My idea is to concentrate in technique first before going on to repertoire.
I also think that Mr Jinariu is a wonderful teacher: patient, thorough and oozes love for the music. I believe his tutorial on posture should be compulsory for any guitarist of any style. I got me a guitar support after watching it ( a Gitano in my case) and the difference is huge. I can not thank him enough for that!!
I miss a graded guide to the repertoire though; i tend to jump to pieces I like but for which I am not ready yet. I think listing the pieces of each section (Begginnig, Intermediate,..) in order of difficulty could be of help.
Welcome and enjoy the site.
