A network for historic guitars and vihuelas
I have noticed that many interpreters of Gaspar Sanz's music add rasguado sections that are not written in the tablature. Is there historical documentation of this freedom?
Thank you for the answers!
This explain many of the versions I have heard, but it's also usual to hear people playing a rasguado section in Canarios. It sounds well, but is there any evidences that this was done at the time of Sanz?
It depends what sort of evidence you want. A strummed version of Canario is included in Ruiz de Ribayaz "Luz y Norte (1677) and in Murcia's versions in Codice Saldivar no. 4. It is really a mix and match situation. These little harmonic formulae are supposed to form the basis of improvisations...
