...Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas starting topping the late Baroque charts. Alessandro Scarlatti (the father of Domenico) took it upon himself to introduce something new.   He came up with a three section overture in the 1680s, as opposed to Lully’s two. Scarlatti also employed a fast-slow-fast form (perhaps he thought audiences were harder to engage when the slow movement came first).

Although practicing without an amplifier is possible (and done quite often), it is not advisable at the early stages because you can develop some bad habits.   Whatever decision you make when choosing your first guitar, here are a few pointers that will make your playing more fun.
