How to be a good classical guitarist ( part one )

In 2005 I uploaded my first classical guitar video and I was very shy in front of the camera.
My goal has always been to disclose the technique of classical guitar.

especially for those kids who do not have the opportunity to attend a classical guitar teacher.

somewhere in the world there are no guitar teachers.

in Italy we are all  classical guitar teachers,
or so it appears in an Italian guitar forum
where a funny guy, after harshly criticizing my interpretation of the Grande Overture,
 he has exchanged Andres Segovia  for a harp !

This ridiculous episode actually happened a few months ago
it made ​​me think about the importance of listening classical guitar
not to criticize but to improve.

 read that some kids often criticize the interpretations of
John Williams, Andres Segovia, Julian Bream
and all the great classical guitarist
to put themselves in the same plane.

it is an illusion.

much better to listen and learn from the great guitarists
and YouTube is a great opportunity for all.

Listen to the very classical guitar is learn to play better
when you are tempted to criticize a great guitar teacher, stop.
and you will be better people!
