3 nineteenth century guitars

"I read through your website. You have chosen a fascinating topic and a life to explore. I have probably missed some things though. Why do you suppose the guitar is 19th century? I couldn't see any details of his music. Was it published - or in…"

3 nineteenth century guitars

"An interesting trio. Do you know the approximate date of the Russian seven-string? Is it currently set up as a six-string (EADGBE)? Do you play the 7-string DGBDGBD?"

My baroque guitar

"Very nice! Some Baroque guitars are so lavishly ornamented they can look a bit ridiculous even though the workmanship is superb."

Stuart Walsh replied to Andrei Blinov's discussion Greatest private collection of antique 7-string ("russian gipsy") guitars
"It is great to see all these guitars. The instrument that I have looks very like the Kraznoshekov (my best attempt: I only know the alphabet) from 1875. Gypsies and gypsy culture suffers a lot of prejudice all over the place and it is heartening to…"

Аndantе (Op.31, №8) by Fernando Sor -- Russian antique guitar

"Thanks Andrei. Please don't take any trouble. I do have lots of 19th century Russian seven-string guitar music to try and play! This music can be very challenging to play - and the strings on these guitars are very close together. I'm just…"

Аndantе (Op.31, №8) by Fernando Sor -- Russian antique guitar

"Very nice Andrei. I would be very interested to know more about the first appearance of the 7- string guitar which you say was first used for accompaniment , not for solos. Do any of these early songs still exist?"

Stuart Walsh replied to George Foster's discussion O'Carolan For the Baroque Guitar
"I've tried a bit of it and it sounds nice. But, like other BG players, I have learned Italian tablature - to be able to play from facsimiles. In Italian tab the top line of the tablature is the fifth course - the reverse of your modern tab. It…"

Stuart Walsh replied to andrew penwright's discussion Gittern
"I would get more advice on this. Gitterns seem to have been made in many sizes-  from not very big to tiny. There are gittern players subscribed to this site but they aren't responding to your enquiry. Are you subscribed to the lute…"

Stuart Walsh replied to andrew penwright's discussion Gittern
"I don't think a great deal is known about gittern tunings. I seem to remember being told that the Berkeley MS mentions a tuning in fourths. I have a gittern with a string length of 43cms and I tune the top course to c''. Someone else…"
