I’m asking the same question Sanne! I ordered the spiral bound book on Monday 11th March and it arrived here in Out-in-the-sticks, Victoria, Australia today (Fri 15th). That is amazing! Great job Simon, Dave and everyone involved.
Cheers – Julie

Thank you Gabriel and Immanuel!
The info from your posts and the previous replies has been most helpful.
I’ve thought further about the Sydney school, but I reckon I’ll cope better at a guitar school with another year of work. Still getting anxious and crazy here!
Looking forward to catching up with you all in the future and you all have a gre…[Read more]
I’ve been trying to find the starting time for the sessions and haven’t had any luck. Could someone please let me know? In NY time is fine. No doubt there’s a post or other info I’ve failed to find.
Thanks and cheers – Julie
What a beautiful guitar Simon!
Richard – your information re the Tieblock System is super handy for me just now. I didn’t know such widgets existed (nor even that there are two different string tie arrangements). Thank you!
Cheers – Julie

Thank you Richard, Sanne and Simon for your help 😊

Hi everyone, I have a general question as a result of reading the info in the Sydney School’s brochure linked to Sanne’s post. Thanks Sanne!
The minimum level for participation is from grade 2 (AMEB) upwards.
Would “from grade 2 upwards” imply that a participant could play any piece in the grade 2 syllabus (or piece of an equivalent level o…[Read more]
Julie Martin replied to the topic Alhambra 4P – anyone got one & are you happy with it? in the forum Beginner Corner 1 year, 5 months ago
I have an Alhambra “S-5 P A” which is a 7/8 size guitar (Alhambra term: “senorita”). The scale length seems a bit under 640mm. It is a spruce top.
The guitar is very comfortable to play. It has a sweet tone as just confirmed by my partner Dave who plays acoustic and electric.
I agree with Mark about checking out second hand gu…[Read more]
I joined four of the sessions and really enjoyed them. It was great watching participants play and hearing the technical pointers and discussion. Richard’s idea about scheduling pieces from the materials seems a good one, I also like Joan’s suggestion re a future Summer school in Aust!
Thank you and Dave for running the live ses…[Read more]
Hi Roger, I was able to follow your instructions, thank you, and create a screen link on my iphone. The iPad doesn’t have the same option for some reason. Maybe when I’m able to update IOS in a few days I’ll be able to add a link to the tablet’s screen. Thanks for your help! Cheers – Julie
Hi Joan, bit of a problem working out what IOS version is currently installed on the iPad but it is waiting for IOS11 (getting a wifi device in a few days at my new address). Cheers – Julie
