Oh well, never mind .. 

I contacted a teacher a couple of months ago, who lives very close to me, who is a member here and who sounded ideal, a brilliant musician. I had a chat with him and he told me to call back after he got back from touring. I left a message on the agreed day but he never got back to me.

I'm feeling let down. My spirit for learning has died a bit to be honest, I was so excited about it.

Do you think it's possible to learn to a reasonable degree online? I'm a decent musician and multi instrumentalist, I have a few flamenco techniques to a beginner level, but getting the compas seems to me to be very difficult. Where to start?

Thanks,
Nigel

Hi Nigel,

Have you considered on line skype lessons???

Ricardo is my top choice for skype lessons..

I am considering taking lesson from him myself.

Something to think about!!!!

maybe his wife/girlfriend/kids played the message and forgot to tell him about it,

maybe it got accidentally deleted,

maybe he came home drunk, played the message and then didn't remember in the morning,

maybe his ansafone broke down,

maybe he wrote your number down on a piece of paper and his dog ate it....

you just don't know.

and yes, maybe he is not worth your time or money, but i would try again!

Instead of writing a response of my own, I've taken the liberty of quoting things other people have said that I agree with.

Man you gotta PENETRATE that teacher guy with your calls until he finally meets you for lessons or explicitly says no.
