The variety of tone production is amazing, as well as how absolutely awful you can make it sound if you have bad right hand technique

This practice has gotten me off of strumming on the couch and into a serious practice regimen that I am thoroughly enjoying. I am discovering new music that I never new existed.

I seriously wonder if I will ever play steel string again at this point. If I do it will likely be just with a pick so I dont destroy my nails on the strings.

I wish I could have told my 15 year old self that classical guitar was cool so I had learned that first, then maybe I wouldnt be struggling now at 30!

Good luck to you.

Good luck to OP.

And you Parilla, at your 30, are still young enough to learn anything you want.
I made the transition at 39. And think I was not to old for that.
