Torres auction

"I am afraid the whole article is a mess - Russell doesn't know very much about the baroque guitar or indeed a lot of other things and his written English is atrociously slangy.  It is astonishing really that a reputable academic publisher…"

"Thank you. This explain the tablature. But his transcriptions are still utterly bizarre, they do not make sense in either Millioni's tuning or an ordinary tuning. It is too bad I didn't manage to upload the photo..."

Strange guitar tunings or error?

Can anyone explain the transcription of chords A, C, D, E, F, G? This is from Craig H. Russel's article in "The Cambridge Companion to the Guitar" Ed. Coelho. The text does not say anything about Scordatura in Millioni's book but following the tablature, the first, second and third strings seems to be tuned differently. Or has the transcriber gone mad?See More

"Thanks Peter, yes I remember this small fugue which I think is from the 1850s. I think it is quite interesting that Diabelli wrote the only true fugues for guitar during the "classical" era."

Peter Sinnaeve replied to Marten Falk's discussion Diabelli fugues
"Perhaps somewhat later, but there's a fugue by Coste too, in Les Cloches Opus 21."

Hello,I have a question. The two fugues by Diabelli are of course true rarities during the early 19th century. But are they unique? Do you know of other fugues for guitar written c:a 1790-1830? I can think of the fughetta by Giuliani which almost could qualify as a fugue.Cheers, MartenSee More
