Hello again everyone,
I guess I thought my introduction and registration on the English forum carried over to here, but now I've been set straight.
I first found delcamp.org a few years ago and had planned to start the lessons then, but work and life intervened and I didn't follow through. I was first seduced by the classic guitar back in 1976 when I was in Alaska working on the Alaska Pipeline in a beautiful place in the Brooks Mountains called Chandalar. The operator of the radio shack was a Christopher Parkening fan, and each night over the camp radio he played his records, including one piece which was entrancing to me: Villa Lobos' Prelude No. 3. A few years later I met a guitarist who had been playing about three years, and he played that piece for me. Three years!!! I thought. I can do that! So in 1980 I found a teacher in Laguna Beach and started to learn. The late Greg Coleman was a student of Fred Noad, and he also studied with Jose Tomas, Pepe Romero, Laurindo Almaeda, and had master classes with Parkening. That makes me three degrees of separation from Segovia, whom I met, and had the privilege of seeing perform four times before he died. Greg was a great teacher and musician. But the economy and work and graduate school in environmental engineering intervened and I had to quit lessons after only about 2 years. I played for years after that, but eventually stopped completely or nearly so about 25 years ago. I tried to pick it up again from time to time, but was focused on other things. I'm still working on that piece by VL!
I retired about a year ago, and can now finally devote the time necessary to the guitar. I started again in earnest last November, re-learning my old repertoire, and decided I needed more discipline and programmed repertoire that was within my reach (as well as the encouragement that you all provide each other). So I came back to delcamp.org. I read through all the lessons in D01 and D02 and decided the best level for me to begin was D03. I started VERY late (just about 2 months ago) and began trying to catch up. I finally submitted all my work, and I'm ready for the final exam for Level D03.
I think when that's over and I finish with lesson 10, I'll just keep on going through the summer (using this year's lessons) and try to submit for level D04 and D05 when the semester begins again in the fall. Now that I'm into it, I'm really enjoying the work and the interaction of our small D03 group of students. They are amazing!
I think I am now registered to take the exam, but please confirm.
