I chose it specifically to annoy people with electronic tuners...

On my Korg OT 12 tuner I have you pitched at about 20 cents below standard A=440 .Is there evidence Tarrega tuned this way or is that something you chose to do for another reason ?

Wonderful.  This is the most meditative version of Adelita I have ever heard (or conceived, for that matter).  Thanks much.

We've discussed Torres on this site before, agreeing that he was On Topic if treated in an historical context. Michael has copied a simple guitar by Torres, with a lute-style bridge and pegs. It feels at times like a single-string vihuela, but also feels like a 19th-century guitar. The guitar is on loan for a short time, and can be ordered from Michael.
