Adelita and Lagrima, by Tarrega - Torres Guitar Copy

"On my Korg OT 12 tuner I have you pitched at about 20 cents below standard A=440 .Is there evidence Tarrega tuned this way or is that something you chose to do for another reason ?"

"Hi Andrew, I play romantic guitars with gut strings and producing harmonics is quite easy. Not much softer than on a modern guitar really, depending on the overall sound of the instrument."

Andrew Hartig replied to John Sheehan's discussion Modes according to Milan ??
"I could be wrong about gut being harder to produce a harmonic on. What do I know - I'm primarily a cittern player. We don't have record of it discussed though, to my knowledge. Maybe because of the unevenness of gut, harmonics were less…"

Andrew Hartig replied to John Sheehan's discussion Modes according to Milan ??
"We have little (or no) evidence of Ren. masters using harmonics. Maybe because they are harder to tease out on a gut string? Besides, getting a harmonic above the 4th fret is no easy task...   The suggestion to move the 4th fret toward the nut…"

Hello, John.  I am not too well acquainted with how the various Facebook list function, and did not see your request and question until today.  I have replied in the positive.

 

There is a list of my publications on my web page.  I'll have to send it to you separately.

 

Regards from Boston, Arthur.

Hi, John. Rob MacKillop actually founded the network in 2008. I pitched in to help with keeping the Scores listing. When Rob decided he needed more time for his other projects he turned over the administration to me. Jelma van Amersfoort and Andrew Hartig also help with the administration. -- R

Lawrence K. Brown lived in Ashville NC and built lutes until last year. I am Lawrence D. Brown, living in Cincinnati Ohio, where I built lutes for about 40 years. I retired several years ago. There were always two Lawrence Browns in the lute world, but most people didn't mix us up. http://www.cincinnatiearlymusic.com
