pogmoor - GuitarLoot updated

Post by pogmoor » Fri Oct 24, 2008 9:28 pm

I have posted a major update of my website, Guitar Loot. This contains my guitar arrangements of Renaissance and Baroque Lute Music and includes quite a lot of information about the music and its composers. All the music files are free and are in pdf format and/or Sibelius Scorch.

My main purpose with this site is to provide guitar arrangements of music that I haven’t found published elsewhere or where I think there needs to be an alternative to existing versions.

I've moved the site to new software (RapidWeaver) which makes it easier to update, made some alterations to the way it is organised and added some new pieces. I've got quite a few more pieces in preparation, so if you are interested in this type of music check on the site from time to time or subscribe to the blog page RSS feed where I will post news of updates

There are sections on the site for 10-string guitar music and ensemble pieces, though each of these has only one piece at present - watch out for more in the future. A few pieces are also posted in lute tablature where the original sources are unclear.

Very nice site Pogmoor! I'm looking forward to checking out some of the transcriptions.
I like the layout/design also. Very classy.

My website, GuitarLoot.org has suffered a bit from neglect in the last couple of years, but recently I started adding to it. I revised a few pieces earlier in the year and added a fantasia from the Nuremberg Lute Book in March. I've also added a couple of pieces of work I did for an Open University Master's Degree in Music, namely:

1) A 5,000 word project entitled:
John Dowland, John Danyel, Daniel Bacheler; the Issue of Attribution in Golden Age English Lute Music.

2) A dissertation entitled:
The English Solo Lyra Viol: A 21st Century Perspective on a 17th Century Musical Instrument.

Today I have updated the site further by adding a page with 9 solo pieces by Francis Cutting. On this page I've also adopted a couple of innovations:

Firstly I've continued to post the music as PDF files, but rather than adding Scorch files I have started including MIDI files and Music XML files. Scorch seems increasingly to be an abandoned format and MIDI and XML should allow readers to hear roughly what the music sounds like and also make it available to load into any notation software for anyone who wants to make modifications to the arrangements.

Secondly, several people have suggested to me that I should include grades for the pieces and I've therefore started including the same grades that are found here on Delcamp (D01 - D10). Of course gradings are very subjective, but they should give some indication of the difficulty of individual pieces.

At present these changes are only found on the Cutting page, but I hope to gradually introduce them elsewhere.

Find the site by clicking on the WWW link under my Avatar.

Hi Eric,

thank you for adding some more treasures to your site.
Just a small hint: Two links to PDF files on the "What's New" page don't work:

Courante (Volte) (Bacheler) In G: [Scorch] [pdf] In E:[Scorch] [pdf]

Thanks Bernhard :D

It's great when people let me know about mistakes or omissions. It's a nightmare keeping everything working on a website :chaud:

I've revised the way this piece is presented, as I'm moving from PDF plus Scorch to PDF plus MIDI plus Music XML - Scorch looks increasingly like a file format that is being abandoned by Sibelius. I'm also making use of a new feature in the latest version of Rapidweaver that improves the way files are stored. Hopefully the links to the files that have been moved over will be more reliable.
