I dont recall reading somewhere that Giuliani played with nails. On the other hand I havent read that he did. But as You Rob I prefer playing with no nails.
I agree, Thomas. Playing with gut, especially without using nails, is a completely different world, and it is what Sor preferred. Did Giuliani play with nails? I suspect he might have. Maybe someone here knows for sure? One thing is for sure, just as today with the electric guitar, there is no one single way to play 19th-century guitar.
Very nice guitar sound. I like this timbre. To tell you the truth, with gut strings you get into other dimensions.
These are far from his 'show pieces', although they could be played faster. I think they are good student pieces. That's a great edition from Tecla (no, I'm not a stakeholder!). There are waltzes, Ecossaises, Landler, and 'Balli Nazionalli'. I look forward to exploring some of them on video soonish.
Exploring Giuliani's easier pieces. Note the use of the LH thumb in the second piece, and the glissandi in the fourth piece. Aquila gut strings on Michael Nalysnyk's Lacote.
