Greetings all my first post but might as well jump into a good discussion.
Okay, I've run into a good little dilemma here. I recently purchased the facsimile to the 1714 Saldivar Codex. Everything is pretty easy to understand in Murcia's notation thankfully except for strumming/rasgeado when it comes to patterns, rhythm, meter, and when to make the chord changes. Is anyone here familiar with this facsimile? Taking for example the first piece, Jacaras, you have indication of chords to use via a lettering system that refers to a chord chart, fair enough, but then you have some vague indication of strum direction and no understanding of what pattern and rhythm they are supposed to be played in. I'd post a scanned screen shot but unfortunately the facsimile is still under copyright.
If anyone is familiar with this and could point me in the right direction to where I might find some answers (which I hopefully don't have to shell out extra $ for since I bought the Volume I: The Manuscript, Complete Facsimile Edition with Preface and Commentary. By Michael Lorimer. ), I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance for any information.
