A network for historic guitars and vihuelas
Somebody asked me how I strum, so here is a rough performance of the Terantela from the Coimbra MS and an explanation of what I'm doing. The original has only one line of chords: C G C G F E Am but I introduce it with the chords which underlie the punteado part: Am G C G Am E Am. Only the first punteado part is original, to which I added four other diferencias - basic stuff.
This is not the dainty repicco found in some publications, so whether it is 'authentic' or not, well, who can say?
Guitar by Alexander Batov tuned to 392, a tone lower than modern pitch.
