Guitar Spectrum (吉他世界)

My first guitar lesson could be dated way back to the time when I was still a high school student. In that period, folk songs were those I played most of the time. Then, Sagovia brought my attention to the classical guitar. Fasinated by his performance, I started to self-learn the basic techniques of classical guitar but made not much progress. After becoming a college student, I decided to start from scratch by taking weekly lesson from Shu-Che Lin. From the third volumn to the fifth volumn of a 5-volumn guitar textbook series edited by Lin himself, I enjoyed learning and playing some typical classical guitar songs in two years. I quit playing guitar while preparing the graduate entrance exam. Busy in thesis afterwards, guitar playing became a luxury rather than an enjoyable daily activity. I then spent two years serving the army, and one year in the industry to earn some money for my later four-year Ph.D. study in the University of Maryland, College Park. During this busy period, I still sometimes took guitar lesson from Lin so as to satisfy my personal passion to this instrument. I returned to Taiwan after receiving the Ph.D. degree and never had a chance to resume my practice. In fact, I almost forgot where I stored my beloved guitar that I bought from Lin. It was due to a performing invitation for the piece, Asturias, that I resumed my daily practice. Since I stopped playing guitar for over 10 years, I was very much dissatisfied with my performance but enjoyed it still. Then, I bagan again to have guitar lessons from some well-known guitar masters in Taiwan, such as flamenco guitar master Wei-Ren Chuang and classical guitar master Alfredo Huang. By luck, I also got to know a famous guitar lusier Chin-Chun Lee in Taiwan and of course ordered one from him. Below is a list of some pieces I re-composed or played myself out of fun. I hope others could enjoy them as much as I do.
