I'm glad to hear your opinion about this. I have not learned this yet, but checked out a few scores and concluded the 6=E appeared to offer the best fingerings.I play it with E tuning. I can certainly understand the attraction of D tuning, though. I just felt that after all is said and done, D tuning does not really buy you all that much and that certain passages work much better in the normal scordatura.
I did check it out (and commented). Really good job. Here's the link to that thread in case others want to listen to it.wongsteven51 wrote:The great thing about this piece is that D is the lowest note, so if you'd like you can just tune down and play directly from the cello score. I would recommend using that as your basis and then looking at others transcriptions or listening to recordings and adding bass notes wherever you like them. That's essentially what I did to make the transcription that I posted on this forum. Feel free to check it out!
