history line for the guitar

Here follows a brief Timeline.

1265 Juan Gil of Zamora mentions the early guitar in "Ars Musica.

1283-1350 Guitarra Latina & Guitar Moresca are mentioned multiple times in the poems of the Archpriest of Hita

1306 A "gitarer" was played at the Feast of Westminster in England

1404 "Der mynnen regein" by Eberhard Von Cersne makes reference to a "quinterne."

1487 Johannes Tinctoris described the guitarra as being invented by the Catalans. This refers to the four course guitar. Each course represents one pair of double strings.

1546 "Tres Libros de Musica en Cifras para Vihuela" by Alonso Mudarra is the first publication to include music for guitar.

1551-1555 Nine books of tablature were published by Adrian Le Roy. These include the first pieces for 5 course guitar. The addition of the fifth course was attributed to Vicente Espinel

1600-1650 Many publications of tablature for the guitar. It's popularity begins to rival the lute.

1674 Publication of "Guitarre Royal" by F. Corbetta increased the guitar's popularity. It was dedicated to Louis XIV.

1770-1800 A sixth string was added to the guitar and the courses were replaced by single strings.

1800-1850 Guitar enjoyed a large popularity both in performances and publishing. Fernando Sor, Mauro Guiliani, Matteo Carcassi and Dioniso Aguado all performed, taught, wrote and had published their compositions.

1850-1892 Guitar maker Manual Torres develops the larger more resonant instrument we know today.

1916 Segovia performs at Ateneo, the most important concert hall in Madrid. Before this it was thought that the guitar did not have the volume for this type of venue.

Cracked Fingerboard NEW 2003 Yacopi

How could your explain a cracked fingerboard, looking like old dried up cheese. From the sound hole back 5 frets a crack completely through the ebony fingerboard. Every fret bar passes the fingerboard on both sides by 1/32 to 1/16 of an inch on both sides of the fingerboard; so if you were to slide the neck through your hand you would cut your hand! Also the back side centre seam beveling from both sides. Also every fret had visible space between the metal bar and the finger board. This was a NEW 2003 Signed Jose Yacopi from Argentina. Sold to me By Omar Oyarzabal from Lansing Mi. I paid huge coin. What could possibly be the reason for the guitar in this shape.

Spruce top, mahogany back and sides, ebony fretboard, French polish, shaller tuner. Scale length 650 mm. This is a concert, signed model guitar very comfortable to play with thin neck, which allows the left hand to move effortlessly. Yacopi is a famous Argentinean luthier that at age 86 continues making wonderful guitars.

Please help us

My boyfriend has an ESP flying V with floyd rose and when he bought it no one showed him how to change the strings, EVERY music store in our hometown and where we live now has given him horoble information on how to do it. Every diffrent technique that he has been told to use has been wrong. He hasn't played this guitar in a year because no one will help him. We've even taken the guitar into music shops and all they will do is say "Oh, I don't need to show you. Just do this it's easy." and he'll ask if they could show him real fast and they won't they'll tell him to try out what they said and if that doesn't work to just play with it. The guitar now sits in the corner with 6 months old strings on it but they are not attached. Can some one please help us and give us just a little information. Thankyou so much.

Re: Please help us

What kind of bridge is on it?

Re: Please help us

he says standered floyd rose

Re: Please help us

Hey, those floyd rose bridges can be tricky. It depends on the model. Some of them the you have to cut off the ball of the string in order to use it. These bridges usually have two sets of pins for each saddle, one vertical, one horozontal. they also have the locking nut. This will be the last part of the fret board. You need an allen wrench. Make sure to put the flat side of the locking nut down. (there are three seperate peices all identical, that have a flat side and a round side). It really depends on the model of the bridge. Check out ESP to find out what style they use on that guitar. Check floyd rose out too. They should tell you how to use there stuff.

Mesa boogie Mark III

Hey, I have a question. I just bought a Mesa boogie Mark III rack mount head. (it has a red stripe over the power cable, what is that?) It has four 12ax7's in it, but it looks like at one time there was a fifth. The space is cut out of the hull, i can see the circut board, and it looks like there are places for the pins to set into. There is no ceramic port for the tube. Is this a modification of some kind? It seems to me that if a fifth tube was supposed to be there the head would not work without it. It sounds great, but if i am missing out on something because of that fifth tube i would like to fix it. If there is anyone out there who could clear this up for me, please let me know.

Check out Boogie, they're really very helpful

Re: Mesa boogie Mark III

On most Mark III's that would be the outputdriver socket. Very curious--your's works without it. The red stripe refers to which step on the Mark evolutionary chain it is (I have a Green Stripe; the last of the bunch).

avt2000 100watt marshall amp

I want to know the best settings for this amp. I'm new to playing guitar and I am having truble finding the best sound. bands I like are Nirvana, bad religion, black flag, green day, afi, and so on. I use a big muff pedal, fender toronado and the amp. I want to quit using the pedal but can't find the best settings on the amp. or if you know the best way to play the pedal that would help to. any hints, tips, or suggestions would be greatly apriciated
thanx

Re: avt2000 100watt marshall amp

uh...yeah turn all of the knobs all the way up. Or for a nice crunchy sound turn the bass to 10 mid to 0 and treble to about 7. And turn off any reverb and turn the gain all the way up too.

Headphones or not

Would you rather use your own headphones with an effects unit or use the ones that came with it? If they ever did.

: Really Need Help

Hi
I had the same problem when I was 16 I new every scale arpeggios I could learn and play the fast,But my solos sucked.Then a local guitar player told me to buy jam tapes .These are tapes that play just music in all the keys I use a casio key board now.This gives you the effect of a live band.apply what you learned after a while you will be mixing all the scales ect.Into your own style it works I still know all the scales there just blended up know .I`m 38 my hands are tired I cant play as fast but I got the feel for the solo the song needs do this and it will come to you.

bick tremontguitars.com

SOLOS

Get used to improvising.

Know your fretboard, knwo where to go so that you can play fast but not hit too many wrong notes. Play along to the jam tapes, a friend's radio, any slow music with little guitar soloing in it. Or solo over the top of moderate pace stuff.
If you find a solo you eally likle in a song, chances are you'llhave to adapt it to your playing ability or the effects that you have...
Good luck, it working for me, hope you have fun!
G

Re: Really Need Help On SOLOS

Just learn a few solos of your favourite guitarists, just change them round a bit and call them your own lol!!
