I like the classical guitar version more, but I might be biased.

Very nice! I've been interested in this piece and haven't listened to anyone's performance of it yet. Are you tuning your G string down to F#?
Thanks,
Vincent

Thanks Vincent!
Yes, I tune down my g-string a half step.
Once you get used to it, most Renaissance pieces are easier to play that way.

And thanks for listening, Bert. Me too, I prefer the nylon string version.
The steel string version was kind of an afterthought when I had heard Rob MacKillop on Yotube playing Dowland on a steelstring guitar.
