A Brief History of THE GUITAR

The guitar is a descendant of two different instruments, the Spanish instrument called the vihuela de mano, and the European lute that descended from the Arabian oud. The Arabic word oud translates in English as "wood." The oud has six courses with the lowest sounding string being a single course. The word course refers to a single string or a pair of strings placed closely together. The European lute and the vihuela had a single high string or single course on top. On the lute this string was called the chanterelle. The vihuela and the European lute appeared in six-course versions. Various configurations of the lute used many tunings and had as many as thirteen courses.

The vihuela had as many as ten courses and was tuned like the modern guitar with the exception of the third string, which was lower by a half-step from the modern guitar tuning. It was tuned, from lowest to highest sounding course: E A D F# B E. The six-course lute was generally tuned, from lowest to highest: G C FAD G. There was no absolute tuning pitch at that time and some treatises instructed the student to rune the 1st string as high as possible without it breaking. The lute is often tuned a whole step higher to (A D G B E A) to take advantage of its more brilliant and shimmering tone quality at that pitch. The earliest guitars date from around the middle of the 13th century in Spain and were mentioned in 1265 by Juan Gil of Zamora in the treatise called Ars Musica. In 1487 Johannes Tinctoris wrote about the four-course guitar being invented by the Catalans. The first music published for the four-course guitar was by Alonso Mudarra (1510-1580) in Treslibros de musica en cifraspara vihuela (1546). Nine books of tablature were published by Adrien Le Roy (1520-1598) between 1551-1555. These publications contain the first music for five-course guitar. Later in the same century Juan Bermudo (1510-15-) and Miguel Fuenllana (1525-1585) wrote music in tablature for the guitar. A treatise from the late 16th century in Spain refers to two techniques of playing the guitar; rasgueado (strumming) or punteado (picking with the fingers). The technique of alternate picking toward the palm of the right hand with two fingers, such as the index and middle fingers, was called dos dedos. There was a further explanation of a technique called dedillo that refers to a rapid up and down movement of the index finger to strike an individual string when playing scale passages.

The baroque guitar had five courses that were tuned to unison at the first, second, and third strings and to an octave at the fourth and fifth strings. The two exceptions are that sometimes the fifth string did not have me bourdon or lower octave string, and sometimes the first string was a single course like the chanterelle of the lute. The former would make the fifth string the highest sounding string on the instrument, many performers preferred the latter, and some performers employed both. The fifth string was the highest sounding string and me fourth was the lowest. On the modern guitar the fifth string is tuned an octave lower than the guitar of Gaspar Sanzo In 1674 in Italy, Francisco Corbetta (1620-1681) published Guitarre Royale, dedicated to King Luis XIV of France. In 1596 in Italy there was a school of guitar playing called the Alpha Beta School. The primary scholars of the school were Juan Carlos y Amat and Palumbi. They developed a system of chord notation that was noted .m letters to describe the chord to be played. They also used the terms "rasgueado" and "punteado" in their rreanse. Between 1770 and 1800, the six single-course guitar was commonplace and following this development composers such as Fernando Sor (1778-1839) Spain/France/England, The famous Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829) Italy, ...
