A network for historic guitars and vihuelas
I thought I would try transcribing this lute piece by Sixtus Kargel to a four string instrument - I would be very interested in having everyone's thoughts, criticisms and corrections on this. You can download the pdf file here:
Thanks for the input!
Thank you for this interesting transcription — never heard of Sixtus Kargel before. This piece is quite entertaining to play while being not too difficult. Keep on the good job !
That said, may I point just a couple of oddities ? There seems to be some discrepencies in the rhythmic values in two spots. Bar 37 : the second note should be a quarter and not an eight. And bar 57 : the total of eight notes make it for a 3/4 signature, which is very unlikely since the whole piece is a straight 4/4.
Apologies in advance if I got it wrong, and thanks if you can shed a light on those minor details.
Thanks, Giles - I'll take a look at Bar 37 and Bar 57 and get back to you on this. I really appreciate the input.
After a bit of an absence, I am finally getting back into my transcriptions which I hope you all will enjoy! Here are ten fun to play pieces by Sixtus Kargel transcribed from his 1574 Book of Lute Pieces for the six-course lute transcribed for the Renaissance guitar, guitar and for the baritone ukulele.
Hello Michael, I moved this discussion to the 'For sale and wanted page' since you are selling the pieces. Thanks.
Thank you. That's where it needs to be.
