Finished and Kit RWC Classical Guitar

 

Proviene del árabe kitara, que se originó, a su vez, en el griego kithara, el nombre de la cítara. Directamente del árabe, fueron asimismo tomados el portugués y el catalán guitarra, y de este último se deriva el provenzal guitara así como el italiano chitarra, ya usado en el siglo XV, aunque también se encuentran por esa época quintara y chitera en diferentes dialectos italianos. En todo caso, la guitarra se tocaba desde muy antiguo, principalmente en España, según se encuentra documentado desde el siglo XIII en textos e íconos. Por esa época, se conocían dos tipos de guitarras: la latina y la morisca o sarracena. La primera, de caja chata, es la precursora de la guitarra moderna, mientras la segunda, de caja redondeada y más parecida al laúd, fue introducida en España por los invasores árabes. En la Edad Media, en España se llamaba vihuela ‘de viola’ a todos los instrumentos de cuerdas ajustables con clavijas, ya fueran tocados por arco ‘vihuela de arco’ o con los dedos ‘vihuela de mano’. La guitarra moderna adquirió una nueva dimensión con la obra del músico español Francisco Tárrega (1854-1909), quien innovó en la posición de las manos y en el modo de pulsar las cuerdas, además de adaptar al instrumento obras de Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann y Albéniz.
