This is another installment of Susato Dances for guitar duet, this time Ronde numbers 3, 4, 5 and 6. They are all tramsposed down a minor 3rd and the notes are exactly what Susato wrote.

Thanks, especially for no. 6, which is one of my Susato favourites. Do you have any suggestions how to reduce this to a solo version?

The best way I think is to take lines 1 and 4, and maybe 3, and make them an initial treble / bass duo. Then thicken the chords on the strong beats according to common practice harmony and add as much of the middle two parts as is convenient for the fingers..... That should work. If you do Ronde 6 that way I will try another one, maybe Basse Dances 1 and 2...... Martin.

OK, I'll give it a try. Theoretically it seems possible to play everything as is on one guitar.
If you haven't already started: I'd appreciate a solo version of BD 2 (Bergerette) and of the other Bergerette by Susato.

Yes - very often it is possible to play every note of the piece but it results in a piece which lacks the fluidity and naturalness of many contemporary lute arrangements. However some lutenists, and I am thinking particularly of Valentin Bakfark, go to great lengths to get every single note in, where most lutenists rewrite the piece quite a bit.....
