I'm looking for additional versions of Mysterious Barricades, especially the Parkening arrangement. Is it available? - Rick

The David Russell transcription of that piece is easily obtainable online to print out from the publisher for a very reasonable price. I find his transcription very beautiful.

If you go to David's website it has it listed with a link to the publisher. That sheet music comes with a couple other nice pieces too. Les Sylvains is a great piece by Couperin.

Does anyone know whether John Williams's arrangement has ever been published? He plays it slower and in a different key with a drop D or drop C tuning (if memory serves) and it works well, IMO.

You can hear his performance of it on his Baroque Guitar CD, which, unfortunately, is the only CD he ever dedicated to the Baroque period.

Swedish guitarist Stefan Wester has done a nice arrangement of this Couperin piece too. If you search "the mysterious stefan wester" you should get a link :-)

I saw Ben Verdery perform this piece on YouTube, which makes me wonder whether he did his own arrangement?

Hello,
Here is a transcription in A major, with the 3rd string tuned to F# : http://www.tabazar.de/partituren/index. ... g=1&page=1

In my opinion, it sounds better than the usual C major while being easier to play.
regards,
Gilles

Richard Yates offers a this tune in Tab, here:

http://yatesguitar.com/pdfs/lute-Couperin-MystBarr.pdf

I hate tab, but if you can deal with it, then this may be a nice alternative.

Yates comments about the arrangement as follows:

"This is well-known to guitarists but transcriptions often attempt to duplicate the four voice texture of the original. This is not necessary as the natural tendency of guitarists playing this kind of texture is to allow notes to ring over anyway. A tablature version illustrates this idea. The version here is well within the reach of intermediate guitarists yet will sound nearly identical to the version played by Christopher Parkening. [2 pages, 129KB]"
