Description
This class will look specifically at the development of the period guitar (4-course and 5-course guitar) and it's emergence as a popular instrument alongside the lute and vihuela. The post-period development of the guitar will also be covered (in brief). The class will introduce the notation of the period guitar/lute/vihuela manuscripts and compare to modern guitar tablature and standard notation. Period resources and composers for the lute, vihuela and renaissance guitar will also be discussed.
