When guitars first came out, the first ones that people knew about were what we know now as “classical guitars”. Historical traces follow the origin of the guitar to Persia, where the word “Tar” meant an instrument that uses strings.
Much later, it found its way to Spain, where their own form of guitar classical music was formed in the 15th and 16th century.
This classical guitar and style of the instrument eventually gave way to the acoustic and electric guitars that are currently ubiquitous in our world and society.
Classical guitars are important, due to the fact that they were for a large part of some of the earliest plays being done. These were the operas.
The classical guitar may be a very niche form and style of guitar. Thus, there may be a need to return to it. If you want to learn more about it, you can attend several of these classical guitar events.
Who knows? The things you would learn and feel may allow you to either appreciate it in plays, as well as incorporate it to some of your own plays.
The first one is called Classical Minds. This year, it will be taking place on October 25 to 27 in the Foxton Village Hall. This will be the first time in 15 years that the event will be taking place outside of Houston, Texas. This year, it will be the 15th annual Classical Minds event.
The event spans six whole days of classical guitar playing. In this event, famous and skilled players and teachers come to either perform for the attendees and even teach you how to be better with your classical guitar skills.
This event is open to people of all ages. Whether you are young or old, if you are interested in classical music or if you want to just enjoy the music, this will be for you.
You should get in on this action quick! For techniques, tutorials, and the like, you need to send an application that will lock you in.
Next up, we have Bath Guitar. This event is done by the International Guitar Foundation & Festivals or IGF. This group’s main mission is to spread the word of the guitar.
One way they do it is through the Bath Guitar event. The upcoming one on July 14 to 17 will host a number of performances that you can enjoy. Most of these performances showcase the talents of the younger generation.
We hope that your interest and appreciation in classical guitar only increases with these events. Apart from that, we also have guitar play events. If you still aren’t sure what we’re about, through our articles, we hope you’ll understand more.
