There are some intonation problems between them but thats VERY natural for guitar/violin pieces (violins are more precise).

I saw the title and I knew who started this thread...
I don't know too much about classical guitar and violin, but that sounded pretty damn good.

You just proved what I said 100% ;)
Is that at least a classical piece? Idk, teach us ignorant lifters!

No. It's a baroque piece.
BF, do you know anything about mandolins?

Its a baroque era piece.
Renaissance: 1450-1650 AD (I think thats where it starts... anything before that is medieval)
Here people started to become a bit more experimental. Medieval music was all about the tonic, sub-dominant, and dominant. Here the music became more complex utilizing more notes, interesting chords and such. Really, modern music and this era have a lot of commonalities. You see some very interesting chords structure here.
Baroque: 1650-1750 (Composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, Handel...)
This era is known for counterpoint. While the previous era had counterpoint, here things became more structured (in our minds). Bach was the king of this era and all music today can be explained with bach's music (at least most). If you want to know what counter point is listen to a Fugue. You can hear the different melodies passing and complimenting each other.
Classical: 1750-1800 (Beethoven, Mozart, Bach's son...)
Here counterpoint was used less and polyphony was used a lot. Basically a chord in the background with a central melody. The most characteristic music from this era is Mozart's. Simple melodies with a certain feel and rhythm.
Romantic: 1800-1900 (Schumann, Chopin, Brahms...)
Speaks for itself really lol.
The twelve tone system was a milestone in music. But I cant bare to listen to it. Annoys the hell out of me lol.
Classical guitar refers to its construction, shape, strings... Playing classical music on a guitar doesnt make it a "classical guitar". The guitar you see there is a standard steel string acoustic with a cutaway. Really only until recently (past 100 years) have there been a difference. Classical guitars were always referred to as just guitar or "spanish guitar" if you want to make a point about tis construction and ornaments.
I know a tad about mandolins. Nothing about different companies but all I know is that its tuned exactly like a mandolin and they are incredibly hard to get used to.

Nothing about different companies
That's actually what I was wondering about.

I would suggest going on a mandolin forum. Think youve learned a lot from this forum? Imagine doing it for music :D
