Mysterious guitar?

This is a Russian seven string guitar. What puzzles me is the shape of the body and the bridge. These looks English (Panormo style) to me but in the same time, the ornamentation looks German and then…Continue

Mysterious guitar?

This is a Russian seven string guitar. What puzzles me is the shape of the body and the bridge. These looks English (Panormo style) to me but in the same time, the ornamentation looks German and then there is the detachable neck of Stauffer style. And then the Russian seven string set up. Any ideas?http://earlyguitar.ning.com/m/photo?id=2111060%3APhoto%3A76780See More

"I don't know if anyone is really interested in this or whether they have worked out the chords with the different tuning but with a couple of exceptions the actual notes are the same but the left hand fingering is different and seems to me to…"

"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
