This is such a valuable part of the CGCA! Simon, thank you.
It has been awhile since I was able to sit in or perform in a performance seminar and preparing for this one helped me focus on details that I had been missing. The positive feedback felt really good and I appreciate the recommendations.
I enjoyed hearing everyone else play…[Read more]

What a great gathering on a hot summer day.
Scott – I have been experienced a few earthquakes here in St. Louis. Truthfully I don’t find them very exciting – very scary for us – but I am glad to know that you do.
Thane – Here is what I use. I last ordered it on Amazon.
Bruce – The SageWork has worked great for me. No adjustments as I move it from one guitar to another guitar. The magnets were easy to install. I could not get suction cups to stick to my guitars.
I play this piece every day as part of my warmups. You are doing a great job with all the shifts.
Is it possible that the improved tone is a result of new strings and clean frets wires rather than a new support. However, the support might be holding the guitar in a better position for your right hand, and that would improve the tone. I…[Read more]
My personal concern is the use of videos outside of the forum. It is easy to get the link of an unlisted video and then share it without the owner’s/creator’s express permission.
When we came to summer school, we signed a release which allows CGCA to use the images and videos. When Simon posted them it he said we can use them for our personal…[Read more]

Does anyone have any suggestions about how to prevent the unauthorized sharing of UNLISTED youtube videos? Other than our sending…[Read more]
Dave – Dan said he had about an hour’s notice on Friday – which made it stressful – and that it was really hot. But he thought they gave a good concert. They played at the Ankeny Festival on Sunday. We are looking forward to our trip up to Des Moines in August.
The correction in my copy is measure 21.
I worked on this for my Grade 6 submission. To my knowledge the only error in this piece in this edition is the last measure on page 86. If you look closely in beat 3 you will see that there was an attempt to fix it. the second note of that beat is B.
It it helps you, I had coaching sessions with Dave and with Simon on this during the winter. And…[Read more]
Very positive. I have seen first-hand the positive impact of classical guitar education for children in under-funded areas. St. Louis Classical Guitar has been able to expand to offer 25 programs in our community – serving over 200 kids last year. I hope Cleveland is able to continue to offer this to the kids.
To add to this thread. A lot of us fall into this demographic. Thank you to Rick Lord for recently sharing this on FB.
