Artur Paredes was born in Portugal.

Artur was born on the 10th of May 1899 in Coimbra to Gonçalo Rodrigues Paredes and Maria do Céu.[1] [2][3]

He was a guitarist and composer like his father, Gonçalo Rodrigues Paredes.[2][4] He dedicated himself to the study of the morphology and sound of the Portuguese guitar, taking special note of the dimensions, treatment of the wood, placement of the crosspieces, points of the scale, and the easels.[2]

In 1924, he married Alice Candeias Duarte Rosas in Bragança, and they had a child, Carlos Paredes.[2][4][5]

He passed away on the 20th of December 1980 after a prolonged illness and the heartbreak of his wife's death. [1][2]
