Seeing as we're all spending a few weeks in the box, here's one of my all-time favourite albums from Tangerine Dream...

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Nothing to do with the guitar nor the technical abilities of the player, but he drags Bach, kicking and screaming, into the Romantic period. It hurts.

Contrast with this, just the way to play the ornaments, vary the rhythm, &c.

Not one piece. Note that I'd be delighted to be proven wrong. :)
"Wrote … for guitar" that's not "there exist transcriptions for guitar".
Abdul Alhazred wrote: Thu Apr 09, 2020 1:27 pm It's a very old instrument.
Undoubtedly, but the Renaissance & Baroque guitars are very different beasts form the modern "Spanish" one.
Abdul Alhazred wrote: Thu Apr 09, 2020 1:27 pm Very likely some of this was written for the lute
Even this is at least dubious nowadays. There seems to be a consensus that Bach's "lute" pieces were in fact for the Lautenwerck, a keyboard instrument, kind of clavicembalo with gut strings. Bach owned three of these.
Abdul Alhazred wrote: Thu Apr 09, 2020 1:27 pm but it sounds good on guitar.
Not always. My gripe was that one doesn't play baroque with romantic mannerisms.

I could provide documentation & examples, but don't want to bore the gentle audience.


Here's a baroque guitar:

There are entire series on YT where hip cool young music dudes listen to old (but great) musical pieces, and react to them

Same with young kids



An old fart like us will find them enjoyable

Alternative interpretation: some people just don't care, or even don't perceive, more or less subtle differences. Extreme example: one of my friends was completely tone deaf and never listened to music.
But I'm quite sure you have your own centers of interest where even small differences matter. :)

Of course not. I met Hoppy Smith some decades ago, great musician. Here he plays the baroque guitar:

A saz (or bağlama), played from the Balkans to Iraq and Syria, but typically Turkish. One of the vast family of long-necked lutes.

As popular as the guitar and used in all forms of music, classical Ottoman, folk and even (electrified) by rock bands.

Very cool, thanks Anax.

I've never heard the saz played that way, nor in such a Western-sounding scale.

Most of the time it sounds like this:
