We might question exactly where and when some boundaries were first proposed.
'Twas shortly after Sir Henry Cricket invented the noble game.

Not sure where but probably the Oval [or Edgbaston perhaps.]

Oh, thank the Lord for the gift of wit ... and Crofty's return - how we missed your rib-tickling repartie.

Not sure that there's anything noble about cricket by the way - from what I hear the players are a bunch of cheats like most professional sportsmen.

I was using "noble" in the ironic sense Marcus.

I have never been to Ironia and am unfamiliar with its customs and language.

I live there... you will find it's laws are arbitrary and in a constant state of flux. :lol:

Indeed. I've just tried it on an electric - no problem, it's very easy. Less on a classical. Did Aguado have a Les Paul??
I guess the 19th century guitar was lower action, smaller nut, probably more sustain, so not dissimilar to some electrics (after all there is some direct lineage from Staufer to Stratocaster). I've seen cross string hammer on in Carcassi, and of course there are all these left hand only variations which clearly indicate that the instrument was closer to the electric in left hand terms .

The cross-string hammer-on is everywhere, in every century. I can't live without it :-)
