For years, classical guitarists have enjoyed playing the lute music of the English composer, John Dowland 1563-1626 . Forty of his beautiful compositions are included in this volume. The book is intended for the guitarist with intermediate to advanced fingerstyle technique, and can be played on both nylon and steel string instruments. In order to help capture the unique character of Dowlands music, renaissance lute tuning capo on the third fret with the G string tuned to F sharp is used throughout. The pieces progress more or less in order of increasing difficulty, and special care has been taken to be sure any group of consecutive pieces can be played with satisfying results. Standard notation only. Includes access to online audio.
