Lovely playing, I think it sounds even better like this on the lute :casque:

Best wishes

Thanks, Val. I enjoy playing this piece myself, but, as Denian says, it does sound so good on the lute!

I have no idea if the lute could use the same guitar tabs or maybe the lute use different notes but I agree on the idea that it suits much better on the lute than the guitar..(Lute is played in a diffefent way in my country..For instance, I have never seen a player whom use cords on the lute..)

Very nice playing as usual..Thanks for sharing :)

In fact this music was for vihuela, a guitar shape instrument but tuned like the lute (the renaissance one, with frets, as I'm playing, not the oriental one, played with a plectrum and no frets, same family but not the same instrument)
The spanish music for vihuela can be played straight from the original tablatures on the lute, as it was done at this time. Lute was played in all Europe, also in Spain, and vihuela mostly in Spain and Italy. We have books (Morlaye for example) edited for the lute, including vihuela music. All this music can be played on the modern guitar just with tuning the third string from G to F# to emulate the lute or vihuela tuning.

Val,
Very nice playing. I hate to admit it, but they do sound better on the lute.
There is a certain lilt that you can attain with the lute that we can't seem
to do with the modern guitar. Our versions tend to be very heavy.
:bravo:
:merci: Dennis

Thanks Dennis,
But you know also the guitar allows much more dynamics than the lute, so, each one does have advantages...
