[PDF] Gow, Neil - Lament

Post by mordent » Wed Aug 29, 2007 5:59 pm

Here is my arrangement of the lovely Lament by the Scottish "violinist" Neil Gow.
I have taken it from Gow's original violin score in D. Major. and arranged and adapted it for guitar in G. Major. with incursions in E. Minor. It fleetingly touches the 1XX. position! The Intro is my own. Note that in the penultimate bar of the Intro the indicated slide should be played without plucking the arrival note "G". The pianissimo markings here should be observed.
I have now included Tab.in this Score and taken this opportunity to amend a couple of obvious mistakes in the notation part and in addition modified bar 23. to something that sounds,to me, better.
Please post me if you spot any mistakes in the Tab.since I'm still new to this!. Regards all. Mordent.

Thank you Vesuvius for your kind response to my Score postings.
It is always nice to hear that one's efforts are appreciated.
I am a newcomer to this wonderful Forum-I love it- and reading past posts I couldn't help noticing how prompt,generous and encouraging you always are to members postings--particularly new members. You are clearly a particularly nice human being.
I note that you "hail from the same neck of the woods" as I.

Hello Mordent,

You are too kind. You wouldn't I was any kind of human being if you heard me play my guitar—you'd probably call the RSPCA!

Even worse, I'm not a true Northener—I'm still an offcumden as I have only been here 16 years!

Best wishes, V :wink:

Together with a recording and the added TAB it's a lot easier now to study and improve on this very nice piece (although it will take very long until I'm coming even close to the recording).

Thank you very much!

Mordent, A lovely arrangement, in the same key as David Russell's version, but slightly easier (no scordatura problems) - it would form a nice combination with Cookie's beautiful setting in D , forming a tonic-dominant relationship G/D/G (or vice-versa). I hear echoes of 'Westering Home' and wonder which came first chronologically. Avoz.

Hi Avoz. Thank you for your kind remarks .Your comments re "Westering Home" are interesting since I also find echoes of that old Irish folk song "Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms"--the Gallic connection no doubt !. Kind Regards. Mordent.
