Thanks Emil!Emil Krasich wrote:Great playing as always, Alain! I hope to get some of my progress recorded soon to share, but you will have to excuse wrong strings being hit and strings that don't always get damped. The Dresden is feeling more natural to me now but still requires such intense concentration.
When using the d minor tuning I play from the baroque lute tabs. It's actually quite easy to learn.Muggins Simoon wrote:Ok, and pardon my ignorance, how do you read in those tunings? Do you basically read regular notation and relearn the fingerboard as you would say when you tune from low E to D? Question # 2: is the 13 string good for other Baruque music in addition to Weiss? And how about Lute such as Dowland? Thanks for your reply.

I used some green highlights on the score too where I might need to look at my right hand.Emil Krasich wrote:Alain Cloutier wrote: As for hitting the right basses I use two different highlighters for the eighth and tenth strings.

I'll definitely give that a try. When I studied with John Schneiderman, he always recommended never looking at the basses which has helped me quite a bit but sneaking a peak here and there certainly won't hurt.
