Weiss Sonata 35 Allemande

Post by soltirefa » Sun Dec 24, 2017 12:54 pm

After hearing this monumental performance I thought if I ever had a 13-string guitar I would want to learn this piece.

And this guy did just that. Audio not nearly as good as above, but the performance is very nice.

Glen, I just checked, that was one of the suites I started to transcribe for Yepes tuning a few years ago. Works in E-minor, a few changes required here and there probably, can't remember any more.

Well if you have that Allemande finished I'd love to check it out.

By the way, did you ever see this amazing number of transcriptions this guy did of Weiss Sonatas?

It's notated and checked for playability, but not fingered.

Edit: Emailed it :)
