A beautiful Allemande by Vallet, one of my favorite by him, but difficult one...

Luthval your left hand had me mesmerized the first few times I watched... I didn't dare look away to watch your right hand till the third repetition! I hope that people appreciate how difficult it is to play this with such precision and perfect tone on double strings... not to mention at that speed!! I confess that I finally had to close my eyes to be able to really appreciate the "music"...
What a beautiful piece! Played so well.

[perhaps I should post one of my less-than-perfect beginner vihuela attempts... just to show people the not-so obvious difficulties that you have mastered! :oops: tangled fingers landing and getting stuck between the double strings, thumb twangs, dead notes, bass notes that don't last... missed shifts, plucking the wrong pair of string, less than perfect tone, etc, etc... :( ]

Thank you Luthval... you always inspire me to keep trying... :bye:

Thanks Geoff and V. ;-)
I don't know if there is any transcription of Vallet's music for guitar ? (and of this one ? even there are extra basses, but if it is not a problem with Bach music, why not transcribe Vallet, OK OK Vallet is not Bach, I know ;-) )

Lovely music, Luthval. You make it sound so easy.
