The Fidel

Early forms of the fidel can be found in numberous illustrations and paintings. Fidels are played either laying on the arm - sometimes fixed with a leather strap around the ellbow. Sometimes they were played in an upright position standing on the lap or even “da gamba” - between the legs.
