In the 18th century, guitar performance flourished. In Spain, great attention was paid to guitar. Many schools and teaching aids appeared, of which the Federico Moretti treatise was especially popular.
In the practice of guitar composition and games, original technical methods and forms of variation development took shape. At this time, countless variations and improvisations on the melody of hot, fandango have already entered the repertoire of amateurs and professionals.
The guitar helped a lot in preserving folk dances in Spanish life, which had long been supplanted in aristocratic salons by a minuet (however, minuets in the Spanish spirit also appeared). Hota, segidilla, fandango and the newly emerged bolero spread widely throughout Europe. It was a kind of revenge of Spain for the invasion of foreign influences that grew during the XVIII century.

Cello (Italian violoncello, abbreviated. Cello, German Violoncello, French violoncelle, English cello) – stringed string instrument of the bass and tenor register, known from the first half of the XVI century

When working with the equalizer, it is very important to understand that amplification of a frequency band leads to an increase in the overall level of the audio signal, and excessive amplification of the bands can often lead to distortion of the audio signal. In this regard, the weakening of “unnecessary” frequencies often gives a better result than the amplification of the “necessary”. Therefore, the equalizer should be used very carefully and not used if there is no obvious need for it.
Equalizers have a wide range of applications. Their main purpose is to obtain an adequate (linear) sounding of the source material, the frequency response of which may be distorted due to deficiencies in speaker systems, inter-unit processing devices, room parameters, etc. Continue reading
