Description: Foscarini is credited with taking the strumming techniques of Italian and Spanish guitarists and adding elements of lute and theorbo technique to produce what would become the modern guitar-playing manner. The guitarist here likes to think of him as inventing the "power trio" (guitar, bass and percussion) since these works also employ a violone and tambourine... The Foscarini Experience.
