4.0 out of 5 stars A Worthwhile Tiltle 29 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
I recently purchased this book as I wanted to add a few more pieces of music for classical guitar to my collection and based on the recommendation above, is not far wrong. I echo the previous reviewer's comments regarding layout and the title's content pieces being particularly clear to read. The pieces contained within would be for the beginning to intermediate player of classical guitar in terms of pieces to work through however, it would make an easy title for someone more experienced in sightreading who wants the odd new piece to play as well. The book comes with a CD which is of good sound quality and playing contained on it is also very clear well played If, like me, you are looking at getting a title to break you into renaissance guitar then I would recommend this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars 50 Renaissance Solos for Classical guitar 7 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very clearly laid out with both music notation and tab, including a CD which is useful to hear the correct playing of the music. As someone who is studying classical guitar and the reading of music, my only small criticism is the few numberings for the left hand fingers in the notation. It is not difficult to work out the correct fingering from the numbers that are there, but it would have been more helpful if most of the fingering was listed. All in all though a very enjoyable and well presented book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction 29 Sep 2009
By Bruce Horner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The music here is in tablature and standard notation printed in a stapled book. The print quality is excellent, with the staff lines fainter than the tablature itself, making this very easy to play from. Many pieces fit on one page, or a two page spread, with just one page turn needed. The CD has very good sound quality. Few of the selected pieces are instantly memorable, but they are easy to play and provide a good general introduction to this type of music. The arrangements are simple, and comparing the John Dowland pieces with the original lute shows the author has removed many harmonizing notes to simplify playing. However, I wanted to expand my knowledge of the genre and this book achieves that. If you're looking for intermediate/advanced works then you'll be disappointed with this. For excellent print quality and book design, good CD, 50 pieces from 21 composers (including 12 anonymous pieces) this gets 5 stars from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff... 25 Aug 2007
By Sulla - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a great tab book for those who are interested in learning Renaissance guitar. The cd that comes with it is very nice, almost worth the price itself. If you're into that Bard/tavern music/medieval type stuff, you'll love it.

I only recently became interested in Renaissance guitar, and this book has been extremely helpful. Some really nice, slow beginner pieces in here, and others are a bit more challenging. Think of it as a baby step toward learning more complex classical pieces.

So, if you're looking to learn this style, I recommend it, it's great fun and very pretty. Also, having a classical guitar isn't required obviously, but if you want the appropriate sound it's highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well 28 July 2011
By Simen Kjaersdalen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
the tunes are good, and the CD is fine. But why make new arrangements of tunes that are even better in the original lute-scripts? Originals that are mostly just as easy to play? Go for the Frederick Noad-book, if you don't need the tab. There you will get much closer to the oiriginal music. This is a "Renaissance light" product, not the real thing. But yes, you can use it for beginners and as an introduction to this music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very playable 23 Mar 2011
By Zdenek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was curious about this title and I am very satisfied, because music is very playable and sounds really good without the need to be fingerstyle virtuoso.
Maybe some purist can say that originally vihuella and lute pieces are sometimes too simplified, but the results sound fresh. CD containes all pieces played in steady, easy to follow tempo.

5.0 out of 5 stars The included CD sells the book 18 Nov 2011
By Tinfoot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Introductory blurbs to each selection would have been a nice touch, but aside from that this is a enjoyable beginner/advanced beginner resource. The CD is very well played and an absolute necessity when confronted with pieces one has never heard before. I have only gotten as far as a single selection (Greensleeves, go figure -grins- ), but I already gotten rather comforting gasps of admiration when I rather haltingly played this arrangement in front of others.
