This journey began with my curiosity about guitar music and its culture. I began to wonder, “How the instrument developed and the technique as well. In addition, “How the music written for it changed over time?” Therefore, to quell my curiosity, I began my research on how the Guitar first began its journey through the continent of Europe and to Iberia America. Following its etymology. My main goal for this recital is to get people to know more about my instrument. I want to illuminate the very first possible origins of a strummed chordophone instrument until its presence in the modern world. Also highlighting the older instruments that helped pave way for the "modern classical guitar". I hope to shine a light on guitar's very rich history and perhaps inspire others to learn more about the instrument.
