On the "new" old romantic guitar...

Very interesting piece; I never heard it.
And more than that, with your "new"-old guitar and your "new"-old style of playing this piece sound almost avangard.
Thanks Valery for sharing this video with us.

Best wishes, Bertran

Valéry,

I've been meaning to ask you for quite a while: Is it difficult to tune your historical instruments with-out the advantage of precise, geared tuning-machines? That is, are the friction-peg tuners difficult to tune?

Thanks for posting this! It seems to me that the music of Carulli is in danger of becoming lost, but by the efforts of musicians such as you, perhaps this music can live on another generation!

Thanks all ;-)
John... I don't find it so difficult to tune with wooden pegs (I'm used to with lutes, and a baroque lute have 24 pegs... here it starts to be difficult...)
Of course it is easier with modern tuners.
Now there are modern pegs looking like wooden pegs but with inner mechanism geared, used on violons, ukulele and also guitars or lutes. I never tried but I will have such pegs on my next custom ukulele. Then I'll tell you.

I really like this...and the guitar: does anyone here know if a modern copy of this style is being made today? I probably can't afford the real thing...
