  • December 26, 2014 requires retuning the guitar

    Two major complaints about this book: 1) nearly all of the pieces require retuning the guitar's third string from G to F sharp and 2) yes, this really is a book for VOICE and guitar. So if you're looking for solo arrangements, this book is not for you...

    . Because the editor assumes a voice will be joining you, the voice, of course, has the melody, and the guitar parts are merely backup. If you want classical guitar transcriptions of Dowland's lute music, you'll need to go elsewhere. Jerry Willard's Easy Renaissance Pieces for Classical Guitar is a great choice and includes works by Dowland and a number of other composers.
