Dowland, John - La Mia Barbara - Lute [Updated] Video

Post by Valéry Sauvage » Thu Jul 16, 2009 5:28 pm

New version: one of my favorite piece by Dowland, not the easyest...

Count Basie: I don't worry about virtuosity. I do what I like to do. If I'm a virtuoso, that's great. If not, I'm doing what I like to do.

Very nice Val :bravo:
I think it's in D minor on the lute. It's possible to play it in E minor on the guitar - but I'm nowhere near your standard with it :(

Hello Val,

This is an elegant piece of music and I am very pleased to have heard you play this one so sensitively for us,

Best wishes, V :D :merci:

Hi Val, I like that Dowland-Feeling. Your playing and also the lute "per se" stands for it.
Great job! :bravo: :bravo:

Lovely, Val! If you did some editing, I didn't notice it.

But alas I do... so I'm trying to put a good one in place.
Thanks all ;-)

I don't know, I thought that was very good indeed. I was looking at Eric's arrangement for guitar just now, and it's still way beyond me. I say... :bravo:

I like how you play the lute, it sounds really the way it should. :)

Beside that, you really look like a lute player to me with that nice long hair and the glasses. :D Wonderful style!

Thanks a lot ;-) I don't know if many wear glasses at Dowland's time???
