    As is to be expected of anything published by a University Press this is a well researched scholarly work It covers primarily the mid nineteenth century to the 1920's The author designated this as the prehistory of the role of the guitar in musical form It also only alludes to the physical changes made to the instrument as time and usage progressed It was interesting to learn that the essential difference between English and Spanish guitars was not so much design as whether the strings were of wire or gut Much referencing is based upon the periodicals of the early twentieth century promoting the mandolin and banjo with the guitar taking least place These periodicals were not only biased but vested in promoting a given manufacturer In the later years these publications also lauded and promoted well known performers of the dayOnce again Jack Chekijian uses his professional expertise to keep the narrative from becoming boring yet pacing the work so as to allow ease of note takingThis audiobook was provided by the author narrator or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review
