    Difficulty Level:
  • February 26, 2007 Some nice arrangements

    I think I enjoy listening to the CD more than I do playing the music! There are many cool pieces; I like how the author tells about each one. I didn't like that so many had alternate tunings.

    Difficulty Level:
  • December 05, 2002 Almost excellent.

    Some of the pieces in this book are exquisite, and will enhance any but the highest level performer's repertoire; certainly, for the dedicated semi-pro, there will be several pieces well worth learning. A couple of quibbles: some pieces sound too much alike, and could not be played in...

    the same performance without monotony. Also, I was quite disappointed that the author would include his own compositions with genuine Renaissance-era pieces. First, they are not superior, and secondly, there is a non-trivial "truth in advertising" problem. Why not two or three more pieces by Dowland or Johnson?
