Azalais,
I can't figure out what you are so :oops: about in your last post here. But listening to RobMac I couldn't help but have the thought, "Doggone it, I just got'em grown back out!" On the other hand, I don't think my nailless playing sounds like his, either. This is of interest to me because I stayed in eternal-beginnerhood for so many years exactly because I kept breaking flimsy fingernails. It's only recently I became determined enought to play, nails or no nails, so I'm very encouraged by this. This is great stuff... thanks much for providing it.

Thank you for posting this exciting video Azalais.
This is the first time I heard this type of music and it was absolutely astonishing.
I regret I haven't noticed this earlier...
I'm going to Rob's website in search of more info.
Thanks!

Great video! Perhaps one could try that technique on an old classical guitar to not worry about the soundboard too much.

Rasqueado and Strumming technique for Baroque Guitar:

Thanks for that demonstration. I read in Christopher Parkening's book how to do a rasqueado, but didn't quite get it. Now I understand. I love percussive sounds with the guitar and will use them more.

Nicely done Rob, that guitar is obviously more robust than it looks

This is a great reference and wonderful performance Rob. I am pouring over a bunch of baroque guitar manuscripts and hoping to get a decent baroque guitar to start playing some of this repertoire. I do play standard classical guitar but I have been drawn to early instruments for sometime now and I can't resist anymore 8)

The soundboard on that Guitar will go unscathed but NO NAILS! Not even a hint of them. Baroque guitars are delicate but can withstand that kind of playing quite easily even though they are constructed much lighter than a modern Classical Guitar. I can also assure you that the finish on that soundboard is virtually non existent. It has a finish but it is extremely thin and to most people it appears as though nothing has been applied to the soundboard. That is the normal manner of finishing Baroque Guitars and other early instruments such as the Vihuela.
No problem with tapping the soundboard in that manner. NO NAILS though! Otherwise you will have to use protectors such as the kling on.

I really enjoyed the video, and I tend to gravitate towards that "Spanish" sound, and the strumming is fun, fast way to play...There is a problem though ! I think I need to get .... wait for it.......another guitar ! :o It is good that my wife is a kind and loving person... :chaud:
