Hi everyone,I am currently carrying out research into alfabeto chord charts and was wondering if anyone had ever come across tagliate chords in a song accompaniment.  They're certainly rare in this…Continue

"Well - you are obviously more double jointed than me!   The point about Chord L is that the third course is open.   With this Chord Z you have to stop adjacent strings at different frets.....and in any case in Chord L the second…"

"I think in Pesori you should include the open 1st course - it is a C sharp minor chord.   Marchetti may be an error."

Hi Natasha I have had problems with my computer and have twice lost my address book so I haven't got your e-mail.  I have finally finished reading your dissertation.  I am impressed.  I wonder if you had thought of writing another article for Lute picking out one aspect of it - lettere tagliate or Valdambrini or whatever.  The only thing I disagree with you -   the continuo exercises in Corbetta's 1671 La guitaarre royale are not identical with those in the two earlier books.  He has filled out a lot of chords and included different sometimes more complex examples.  Interesting to compare it with the earlier books really.   Hope you haven't given up on the guitar yet.
