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.
