Hello from a middle aged, beer drinking, ukulele playing, guitar torturing idiot in New York. Sorry to call attention to myself, but it seems to be necessary in order to download the transcription of JS Bach’s keyboard "Capriccio on the Departure of his Most Beloved Brother" so generously posted by pogmoor. For several years, I have been looking for the transcription in D by Gentaro Takada in a 1993 issue of Gendai Guitar, which a guy plays on YouTube, but no luck. Guitar players rule.

Thank you for the mention - and welcome to the forum. I hope you'll stick around and join in :)

There's a whole lot of other good arrangements here - a wide variety from M. Delcamp himself and those from other forum members.

Thanks Eric. I see you are a Renaissance and Baroque freak. I have been thinking about taking up the lute, but have some concern it would be too much of a distraction from the guitars. Do you play the lute?

No I stick to the guitar. I did think about playing the lute when I was younger - I even tried building a renaissance lute but I discovered I basically wasn't any good at woodwork!

One of the drawbacks lute playing is that if you want to cover the whole spectrum of lute music you need to master several instruments with varying numbers of strings and different tunings. I just haven't got the talent for that. But I love listening to lute music.

Sensible. That confirms my decision to stick to the guitar. I am vaguely envious of a local guy who commissioned a lute, and is now, after a couple of years, commissioning a theorbo. Not sure I could fit a theorbo in my practice room without sticking the neck out the window. Would probably poke my wife in the eye with it too. All kinds of reasons to stick to the guitar.
