Went to the finals of the Joanne Falletta International Guitar Concerto Competition in Buffalo NY last night. The winner, a Russian, performed Rodrigo’s Concerto de Aranjuez with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra under Joanne Falletta . She was a Julliard guitar major. I was in the 5th row. Blew me right out of my socks. His and his competitor’s guitars were magnificent. Looked like Brazilian rosewood back and sides. Beautiful. They were LOUD and the tone smooth as silk. No amplification. Seating capacity: approx. 2,500

I have very little classical guitar knowledge. Are any of you familiar with Renaldo Belluci's guitars at

Hi Folks,

I have just uploaded a video of "Sor's Etude in Bm". It is part of a complete lesson with note by note directions, instructional video, etc. If anyone is working on this piece,or would like to, you may be interested.

I can answer any playing questions in my group at this site, or in my "Free Guitar Improvement Workshop"

I just have to say... you know what the greatest challenge is to me? My cussed fingernails! I keep breaking them, cracking them, and sometimes they won't grow in nice and straight but instead grow downward in a claw shape that catches the string. What a pain! I have the tools: Nail polish/hardener, fiberglass nail wraps, super glue, ping pong balls, etc. I'm getting pretty good at maintaining my nails. I guess if I fail at playing classical guitar I can always get a job at a nail boutique. MIght come in handy because I've had to give up doing everything I used to do for a living (pouring cement, laying wood and tile floors, working in my garden, etc).

I have just recently started studying classical guitar techniques extensively. What a challenge it is, in a very great way.
