I think I understood that :-)

Pratiquer le prélude improvisé est essentiel et devrait faire partie de l'éducation des jeunes musiciens. Belle proposition encore cette fois Rob!

Ha, very nice, and the Giuliani as well :-) Very stylish and fun to make your own preludes to pieces. I do that before songs.

I include a short improvised intro here. I'm going to commit myself to adding improv into my daily 19th-century guitar practice. I'll be writing about improv and the 19th-C guitar on my new site: http://19th-centuryguitar.com, but more about that anon. It's not my best intro take, but it's OK. It's something I want to encourage, even for complete beginners.

In my intro, I wanted to feature the beautiful inverted German 6th chord from bar 6 of the score, which is often seen as a misprint and changed to an A sharp diminished 7th. I think it is correct as printed.

I've also added in a couple of low B notes on the 8th string. 8-string guitars were around in Giuliani's Vienna, and I see no reason not to throw one in every now and then.
