Dowland, John - Tarleton's Resurrection

Post by David Norton » Tue Apr 17, 2018 2:17 am

Here's a tune I play to my 3 year old grandson at naptime: "Tarleton's Resurrection", by John Dowland.



Guitar made by Joseph Redman in 2015, Lutz spruce top with African padauk back/sides, and dedicated on the label to grandson Alexander, who will inherit this guitar in due time.

Can you remind me/us what you have the 7th and 8th string tuned to? I think I see/hear you playing a couple low Bs (7th string) in that piece. I found a pdf of this in A major and I'm guessing you play it in that key. Are those low Bs original or something you decided to throw in there. I like how they sound.

7=B and 8=D. An inverted re-entrant sort of tuning, but if I want a bass C I only have to fret the 7th string instead of reach over to 8. I added the low B at one point because I like the sound. I believe the original is for 6 course lute.
