Introducing the Baroque Guitar with Sergio Bucheli

Sergio Bucheli takes us through the development of the Baroque guitar, various playing styles, continuo and solo repertoire and its influence on Latin American folk traditions. This comes via Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s YouTube channel. Wonderfully informative video and an excellent addition to their growing channel of lessons on historical instruments. You can also see the Theorbo Development in the 17th Century with Elizabeth Kenny.
