Description
This class will introduce the notation of the period guitar (4-course and 5-course guitars), lute and vihuela manuscripts/publications and compare the period notation to modern guitar tablature and standard notation. Examples from several manuscripts and composers will be examined, including French tablature, Italian tablature and alfabeto. This class will be taught over Zoom, but will *not* be recorded. You don't need to be a guitarist to take this class; however, if you have a guitar (or lute, or vihuela, or ukulele, or even a guilele!) bring it to class, and we will do an alfabeto exercise, time permitting.
