Archive: Guitarities

As an (amateur) guitarist, you get involved with some aspects which are mostly far behind the scene for the audience which is enjoying the results of your efforts. I thought it to be fun to describe some of my personal experiences with these aspects with the Guitarities. Maybe it is useful for you, and if not… it might be just fun to read and entertaining. Further you will find here reports and notes concerning a number of guitar events that I attended.

Some of the Guitarities are timeless. You can find them in the Guitarities section. Another part is time-bound, so now it is time for them to find a place in the archive. They mainly concern past events such as specific competitions and festivals.

Below you will find the links to the PDF documents.
