Nice guitar, great playing and of course great music. Is the deep bass note in the Mertz transcription, or is it your own touch :P?

Thank you for your comment.
Indeed, I took some liberty regarding the deep basses. The 6 Schubert songs were adapted for 6string guitar, but Mertz used extra strings in most of his concert pieces, that were not published in his life time. Maybe is reasonable to think that Mertz himself would have played this pieces with a similar approach :)
