Lessons and Conversations with David Russell (CGR)

David Russell in conversation with Classical Guitar Retreat director Matthew McAllister during the 2018 retreat in Scotland. FYI, the twelfth Classical Guitar Retreat takes place in the summer of 2020 at the Cathedral of the Isles on the Island of Cumbrae off the west coast of Scotland so check it out. These lessons came out quite awhile ago but I recently was posting them elsewhere and remembered how good they were. I love the down to Earth advice and the conversation format of the lesson. This is much more similar to learning in lessons or masterclasses but works well in video format.
