Hi everyone, I've been lurking here for a bit now, and I've just decided to join.
I started off playing electric guitar about three years ago, I got into al the 'shredding' nonsense and became quite proficiant fairly quickly. Recently I've stopped playing electric guitar and moved onto classical, I'm working towards a grade 8 (Associated board) next year. I've become interested in jazz guitar and especially playing it on a nylon strung guitar.
Thus far I've started to learn seventh arpeggios all over the neck.
I'm thinking of purchasing the jody fisher method, any thoughts on this and its suitablity to nylon players?

Thanks, Mark

I love brazilian music! I've only recently discovered the delights of Villa Lobos and Pernambuco, but they've already become some of my favourite composers, and only today (in Maths) I started work on my first attempt at composing in the choro style.

Thanks very much for making me feel welcome everyone Very Happy
