Artur Paredes (10 May 1899 – 20 December 1980) was a Portuguese guitar player in the city of Coimbra. Much of today's Coimbra guitar features can be traced back to his contact with local luthiers. His son Carlos Paredes was a virtuoso and attained popularity, becoming the most internationally known Portuguese guitar player. He entered into the dominion of classical music with his compositions for the Portuguese guitar, beyond the traditional use of the instrument in fado musicianship.
