Lex Eisenhardt replied to Olav Fylling's discussion Some questions about playing from Robert de Visée’s Tablature.
"Spanners can be useful though. I was referring to downstrokes without a sign. But yes, if there is a sign ­on ½ notes and dotted ¼ notes we could of course consider to include the third finger as well. However, I should say I have…"

Lex Eisenhardt replied to Olav Fylling's discussion Some questions about playing from Robert de Visée’s Tablature.
"To clarify my point, the great majority of downstrokes are at ¼ notes and ⅛ notes. Like with upstrokes, this does not allow you to use more than one finger.  With ½ notes and dotted ¼ notes without a sign one could…"

Lex Eisenhardt replied to Olav Fylling's discussion Some questions about playing from Robert de Visée’s Tablature.
"Are there other options?  I don't think there are upstrokes with a sign. "

Lex Eisenhardt replied to Olav Fylling's discussion Some questions about playing from Robert de Visée’s Tablature.
"It may not be as bad as it seems.   It appears that there are 5 ways to strike a chord: Downstrokes with a sign ­— ½ notes and dotted ¼ notes = m-i-p Downstrokes with a sign — ¼ notes and ⅛ notes =…"

Lex Eisenhardt replied to Olav Fylling's discussion Some questions about playing from Robert de Visée’s Tablature.
"Never blindly follow the opinions of others, even if they are French....  To the example (1686) p. 35, line 2, last measure: There are more half notes with a curved line beneath the stave. See (1686) p. 43, line 1, measure 4 and line 3,…"

Lex Eisenhardt replied to Olav Fylling's discussion Some questions about playing from Robert de Visée’s Tablature.
"I don't think we can say that the difference is due to carelessness on the part of the engraver. Nor that it implies that they are meant to be different. It could even be that for his 1686 book he corrected the example, to avoid that…"

Lex Eisenhardt replied to Olav Fylling's discussion Some questions about playing from Robert de Visée’s Tablature.
"...I should make one correction: the example of a curved line at a batterie with the sign placed on the stave and not beneath it  (1682 p. 10, line 3, measure 3), actually was at a dotted quarter note. There are other examples showing…"

Lex Eisenhardt replied to Olav Fylling's discussion Some questions about playing from Robert de Visée’s Tablature.
"Robert de Visée on the Art of Strumming.   Even though the content of the two translations (see discussion above) of Visée’s 1682 preface is actually very similar, the text can lead to widely different…"

Lex Eisenhardt replied to Olav Fylling's discussion Some questions about playing from Robert de Visée’s Tablature.
"Some thoughts on strumming with Visée, the examples can be found in (the facsimiles of) Visée’s guitar books.   Visée’s remark (1686, example on p. 4): ‘Cette marque dessous les lettres c’est pour…"

Lars Rosager replied to Lex Eisenhardt's discussion Observations on campanelle
"Sure, but in the long run a peer review will add more weight to your argument, if you ask me. I think both self-published and peer-reviewed material is important. Don't get me wrong. I value your offering 100%. As for the stringing arrangement,…"

Lex Eisenhardt replied to Lex Eisenhardt's discussion Observations on campanelle
"Dear Lars, The trouble with peer-reviewed journals is that they are very slow, and that usually they don't offer open access.  It may take years before your article is published. Therefore I have put it on line, and also at academia.edu,…"

Lars Rosager replied to Lex Eisenhardt's discussion Observations on campanelle
"Thanks for this article! Is it published in a peer-reviewed journal? While I didn't have time to read it through right away, I am reminded of some propositions I made as a masters-level graduate student (I now hold an MA in music) with regard…"
