Sounds a wonderful programme. Just tried the link from here in the U.K. but sadly it doesn’t work due to “rights restrictions in your region”. Hope others elsewhere have more luck! Thanks for posting anyway.
Love the idea of a trip to Madrid. You know a number of us outside the US are keeping our fingers crossed that we can have a…[Read more]

Hi Dave – I’d like to join please. Thanks. Jenny
What a fantastic podcast so thank you Roger and the brilliant DuJu. I love listening to all the podcasts Roger and eagerly await the next DuJu performances. Keep them coming!
I was so sorry to hear, Mark and Narayan, that you aren’t sure just how many people are following the Composer of the Month material and wonder how just widely…[Read more]
Here are my Wk3 Video updates – I’m a week behind everyone else due to my late start but I’ll get my last video up before the feedback session on the 31st. Niki – thanks for the helpful feedback. Will work on the things you suggest for this my final week. I have noticed that my RH is still too far away from the soundboard despite my best…[Read more]
Hi Martha, Bruce and Richard,
Many thanks to you all for your helpful replies. Sounds as if the problems people have talking about on the web with the cases may have arisen if the soft case wasn’t being used in transit. All your experiences sound to have been very positive and you all seem happy with the cases. If you didn’t know the hairdryer…[Read more]
Hi Bruce – many thanks for your response. Really sorry to hear of the damage to your Cordoba – you must have been upset but hopefully the guitar was insured and it was fixable.
Have you tried the hair drier trick I wonder on the dents? Regarding the soft case, the UK distributor tells me that the soft case is made of rip stop nylon and that…[Read more]
Here is my update for this week. Two videos – the first for the Giuliani studies and the second is the baseline video for the Aguardo Lesson 19 bars/measures 3 and 4 and 8 and 9.
I think the smoothness of chord changes in the Giuliani Studies has improved but I need to work on…[Read more]
Thank you so much for the very prompt response. You have a lovely looking case. It is really helpful that you have both versions of the case and can give a user’s perspective. I was interested to hear your comment about the Active case feeling heavier. The spec says it is only 50g heavier and I thought that that should not be…[Read more]
I’m in the market for a new guitar case as I have decided to take the plunge and get a new guitar. I’ll need to travel with it on occasion (maybe even to Summer School at some point) so I’m looking at the Visesnut case (amongst others) and Simon’s review and all your comments above have been really useful. Could I ask Visesnut case…[Read more]
I’m behind the curve on this one as I have been away – minus my guitar sadly. Managed to register for the challenge just before I headed off but this is the first chance I have had to post a video. So this is my belated baseline video. I’ll have to condense the Challenge into the time remaining but thought it was better to do join in and do…[Read more]
Welcome to CGCA. This is a great place to learn – lots of excellent material and support from the CGCA team but also a wonderful community of adult learners from all round the world. We now have what appears to be a growing U.K. contingent. I’m in Yorkshire (aka God’s Own County!)
Good luck with your learning.
This is a great idea. Count me in too. I’m still working on this piece and will give an update over the weekend with progress and targets for next week.
I think it is just amazing to be able to link up with kindred souls potentially all round the world working on the same piece at the same time.
You can get the Sagework guitar support easily in the U.K. by mail order from the London Guitar Studio. They have it listed as a Barnett support – it is simply a former name but exactly the same product. I looked at importing from the US but by the time the import duty, VAT and handling charges were added on it came to about the same…[Read more]
I struggled with my back too when I first started learning the guitar and initially used a footstool. The most I could play for was 30 minutes before the pain became so bad I had to stop. Life was transformed when I started using a guitar support. The footstool puts a slight twist in the back I found but with a guitar support the back…[Read more]
I noticed that members at my local guitar society simply use a piece of plastic mesh anti slip shelf liner cut down and laid over the left upper leg. Very cheap and very simple. I tried it myself and use it every time I play now. Have not had a problem since regardless of the trousers am wearing at the time. It tucks easily into…[Read more]
Thanks so much for setting up this thread on the Forum. I don’t Instagram or Facebook so will be following all your progress via this thread. Have a wonderful time! Look forward to hearing the final concert when the replay appears on the site.
Here is my final video. This time I have recorded without using the metronome as in the baseline video. Still more to do but much improved over the Challenge period. Interestingly having slowed the metronome speed right down I have found it a bit tricky to speed it back up again towards performance speed. Not sure whether this is a common…[Read more]
Here is my week 3 video – late again! I have been practising diligently this week and I do feel there is much more consistency and I am getting more comfortable in the LH. This week I plan to see if I get the speed up a little and try keep a consistent tempo without the metronome.
