I just discovered it a short while ago, when I was searching youtube for the other menuets I arranged. It's a beautiful piece, so I was surprised that I couldn't find any youtube videos of guitarists playing this. There's another arrangement of this on http://www.yatesguitar.com, so it's not completely overlooked by guitarists.soltirefa wrote:I have always liked this piece.
In A minor, just like the one on yatesguitar.com, but more difficult. It would take a better (or just another) guitarist than me to play Minami's arrangement musically. I just tried it, but was struggling technically. That stretch in bar 4 is too much for me, although it could be played with an f bass note on 4rd string. The advantage of arranging it in A minor is some more room for the accompaniment. Everything is closer together in my arrangement, maybe giving the result a bit less depth. He and Yates are a lot more accurate by including all the ornamentation, but everybody is free to do that to my arrangement too. Well, arranging is compromising.soltirefa wrote:Here's another arrangement in A minor from Minami's website.
I saw that video just this morning. He did indeed make it hard on himself. I don't know if he made his score by hand or with software, but programs like Finale, MuseScore etc. make it so easy to try different keys and consequently a lot easier to make a playable arrangementsoltirefa wrote: Did you see this guy playing it in G minor. It's okay, but he needs to play it a bit choppy because the shifting is hard.
No, just do what you like best. I used to not include fingerings, because I wasn't sure my solutions were the best ones. That's still the case, but they might be of some help, but can also be ignored. I never use the tab, but try to edit it as accurate as possible after I copy the score to that system.Jeffrey Armbruster wrote:Are you committed to the fingerings on your tab?
Some of those extra notes for the bass lines might end up in a revised version.soltirefa wrote:Bert, if you're up for the challenge, I suggest you try going through Kaare Norge's version and put it to paper. You have already done the hardest part.
