Why this website?
After returning to classical guitar in early 2015 after a layoff of nearly four decades I found that the first problem I encountered was the very limited range of available reasonably priced but good quality instruments. The South African dealers focus mainly on providing cheap guitars suitable for young beginners.
My second challenge was to find good strings at a reasonable price, and the third challenge was to find quality articles, lessons, videos, sheet music and so on. This information is all over the internet but I had to be selective and build up a collection over time.
So, I decided to create a site aimed at serving South African classical guitar enthusiasts, like myself. I have chosen to structure this site in an innovative way from a player’s perspective.
I have designed the main sections to meet the needs of Basic, Transitional, and Intermediate players.
In each section, you will find appropriate lists of graded pieces, music scores, videos, technical lessons, and articles of interest.
There are also sections featuring a limited range of imported guitars that you can purchase from me. In the guitars sections, I have provided pictures, full specifications, an expert report on the build quality and playability, and videos of pieces played on the instrument in question.
Throughout the site, I have linked to the sources of the material and in addition, I have provided a list of the sites that I recommend .
I will be constantly updating and adding to this site and I hope that you too will submit articles, videos and other items of interest. I want this site to become the go-to location for classical guitar enthusiast all over our country, but I am sure that international visitors will also find much of interest.
