Good job Dave, I liked your playing.
I second Linda’s comments
I enjoyed the masterclaas, wached it twice.
I do not know about your life style. If I had this problem I would start with some sessions of fast pace walking to see if it makes any change; the walking works a lot of muscles. If not I would consult a physical therapist.
I just viewed your grade 6 examination because I was curious to see someone perform at this level.
Félicitations! I really appreciated the poise of your sound and your calmness in performing.
It is for me a good example to follow.
Thanks for posting.
Being a lefty like Wade I never had the chance to try classical guitars in store. My guitar is a 1978 left handed 10 strings guitar built for me by Edward V Dick who was living in Ottawa, now in Denver.Colorado; it is a copy of a Ramirez.
Now Cathedral Guitars(CathedralGuitars.com) sell 7,8 10 11 strings guitars but none for lefties.…[Read more]
That will surely be interesting: it is good to know where we come from, classical guitar was not invented in the XX Century. Also how many great composers have been forgotten for so long.

My only regret is that I dod not learn about CGC sooner.

Félicitations Donna. I do not know if you were nervous at all. I enjoyed listening and watching you playing. Inspiring. And what a teacher.
I joined CGC on march 4, and I did not introduce myself before because I was not sure I would stay: after the exchange of E mails with David Belchar and Simon Powis and above all the coaching call I had With David yesterday and being a spectator in a few coaching calls I made up my mind: you are stuck with me for at least a year and who…[Read more]
Narciso Yepes invented the modern tuning for the 10 string guitar; the 4 additional strings are tunde C, B flat, A flat and G flat, where the C is one octave lower than the C on fith string. Th B A and G flat are the same notes that are found on the fifth and sixth string.
This tuning is not so much to extend the range,like a baroque lute that…[Read more]
