I noticed in the bourree section some mistakes, I could be wrong as they are your interpretation probably, but compared to renditions watched from accomplished guitarists, they are most definitely different. Is it something that has been brought upon? I will find specifically the parts if required and needed.
Hi Evangelos, I understand what you are mean...
But baroque guitar is a significantly different instrument (I do have one
) If we try to play exactly from original tablature it sometimes is excellent sometimes not. I think M. Delcamp's version is close to the original.
Is this in standard tuning? I think someone mentioned it was a drop d tuning?
Baroque guitar is ADGBE, like strings 1- 5 of the classical but
We need to remember that BG is usually re-entrant ( the fourth and fifth pairs of strings can be an octave higher than we might expect
so the bass notes may be on any one of 3 pairs of strings) I personally think with Visee only the fifth course should be higher - but others disagree.
Then ...on classical do we use our string 6 - bass string, which the BG does not have ? Maybe drop-D would be good for some baroque guitar pieces.
Also how much do we embellish / improvise around the notes?
Debate could take many lifetimes!
So you are correct that versions for classical are really very different.
I must compare the original and the transcription of to tell you my exact opinion. (It is late and I am tired so I will do it another day) But the Delcamp versions of early guitar and lute music that know seem fine to play on modern guitar and the original instrument
