  1. Hi Rob,

    I love how versatile you are with guitar! I have a dilemma…I don’t know whether to study Classical or Jazz guitar. I just can’t decide between the two. If you had a chance to go back and study one at university which one would you choose?

    Thanks,
    Natalie

    • Hi Natalie. I would choose classical, as the solo repertoire covers 500 years of music, whereas jazz depends on what I create, largely based on a standard repertoire. But 19th-century guitarists used to improvise – check out my 19th-century guitar and Sor pages – which needs to be brought back into modern classical-guitar playing. And South American music often uses jazz chords and sometimes improvisation too. So, to sum up, I’d choose classical, but try to bring in some of the elements of jazz. I hope that helps! Rob
