Milán, Luys - Pavana no. 1 - D04

Post by David Belcher » Thu May 07, 2015 9:11 pm

I realized today that I had never played this piece using the capo, as some guitarists do with other pieces from around this time period. After I had been playing Lachrimae Pavan with the capo in that position I began playing this one and liked the sonority of the chord voicings in the higher register. Here's a very off-the-cuff recording I made today with capo on III for the first time of Luys Milán's first pavan (from "El Maestro"). I play it quite freely, similar to Segovia—hopefully that doesn't overly offend the talented vihuelistas among us! :)

I seem to have missed this when you first posted. Nicely done! It really works well capo-ed up.
