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 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.
