Weiss, S. L. - Prelude in F major - 10string guitar

Post by soltirefa » Fri Aug 16, 2013 3:01 pm

I listened to Kidneycutter's rendition of this piece and thought I'd post this mp3 I made several years ago on my 10-string. This is transposed from F down a half-step to E.

I have only 5 fingers and struggle to cope with 6 strings, so I don't know how you manage 10! But hearing the contrast between those rich deep basses and the delicate trebles I can understand the why. It really is a joy to listen to.

Thanks, George. The first six strings are the same, it's just the extra four you need to get used to ... and it's the right hand that is hardest to adapt.

Thanks very much! I'm sure your playing of this suite will be great on that Dresden. That is the best tool for the job when it comes to Weiss. This particular prelude fit very well on ten strings though in E major. I also learned the Allemande, a very beautiful piece. Looking forward to your recordings!

Have you ever tried to install an eleventh string on your guitar and tune it in d minor?

That's what I did to try the baroque tabs and I got hooked right away!

If you're interested I'll send you pictures of the device I built. It actually worked pretty well.

I would like to see pictures of that, for sure. I have thought of doing that to my 10-string but never did. I would be sorely tempted if I knew it wouldn't hurt my guitar.

If you think you can use it like it is or just study it I can send it to you. I don't use it anymore.

Wow, very nice device. I think yours looks better than the one that inspired you. I'm going to save these pictures. Let me think about your offer to send me yours. That's very generous. Thanks for your help. Looks very promising, indeed.

:bravo: Lovely playing!
I love the deep and rich sound of those bass strings. :casque: They add a whole new dimension to it.

Thanks for posting.
