I took 3 hours a couple of weeks ago and finally changed the strings on my Goya G-10 Classical guitar (been so long since I've changed any strings it took me a while to figure out how to do it!).

The strings finally settled down (Augustine Blacks, my favorite) and I've been fooling around with some Küffner & Sor exercises. This one is a Landler by Küffner. Very raw take, no edits.

Thanks, Peggy. My Goya and I have been together since 1964 when I got her in lieu of a roommate's portion of the rent (around $85 back then). We've had our separations (work and life got in the way at times and she was relegated to the back of the closet), but I always eventually hear her calling and back out she comes. If I ever have to make a choice of only one instrument to keep, it will be her.

I understand completely! I've got one like that in my life...Mr. Alvarez...not a classical, but stole my heart and before that spent a lot of time in one person or another's closets or sheds. I didn't even pay a penny and he's not actually worth more than 100 dolllars or so...but to me, Mr. Alvarez is worth well over a million!
