Why a blog about Classical Guitar? I’m missing too many great concerts!  I am a amateur player of the guitar who loves music.  I wanted a forum to post links to local concerts (within 5 hours drive from Indianapolis, home base) & provide classical guitar related information:

  • Concert Information:  who, where, when, how much, etc, etc
  • Concert synopsis.  Not a review (I am not a critic).  Describe the repertoire performed at the event. etc, etc
  • Q & A.  A great way for artists to share with the fan base.  It’s a lot of fun for ME too.
  • YouTube video links, Music resource links for featured artists.  Seems to make sense to provide as much detail on the artist as possible.
  • Links and classical guitar resources geared to beginners or advanced players.
  • Links to teachers, organizations, classical guitar societies, university departments, etc.  If you are interested in finding these folks in your area.
  • Of course, if I’m missing something… just let me know and I’ll post it.

There are many blogs which criticize performances and performers. This is NOT one of THOSE sites. This blog has a goal to remain positive in presenting feedback on the performance; not to simply criticize. Your concert may be included in the blog.  Just let me know about it (if I miss it).

As for me, I’m just a kid with a dream.  I’m no virtuoso.  I’m just a guy who enjoys playing a bit of guitar for friends and family.  I encourage you to do the same.  What good is playing the guitar if no one is around to enjoy it?

    Great site! I may yet become a fan of the classical guitar. May make an offer on one of those guitars you own.
