Le Roy - Branle simple de moy pitié

Haunting piece, rather dark for a Branle. Le Roy's book for 4-course renaissance guitar is absolutely fascinating. And sounds pretty good on the Uke.

Bossinensis goes Uke - Ricercar 6

I am hooked. After studying the great stuff Rob MacKillop sent to me (from FingerstyleUke) I reentabulted a nice little recercar by Bossinensis. It's fresh and cool and fun, yeah. If you want to listen to it, click on the headline, if you like to play it yourself, here comes the tab: Bossinensis goes uke. (Original tab by Sarge Gerbode. Listen to Recercar6

Le Roy - Pavane played on Ukulele

Today, the idea of using an Ukulele as a substitute for a renaissance guitar came true. Bought a rather inexpensive tenor uke with fine Aquila Nylgut strings, which make a good sound. If you want to listen to a sound example, just click on the headline.
If you want to learn the Ukulele (classic or modern style) I recommend the great site of Rob McKillop: FingerStyleUke

Hans Newsidler - Ach Lieb mit Leid

Ach lieb mit Leid (Premium version), from "Ein Newgeordnet K√ľnstlich Lautenbuch". The diminutions are tricky. Still not the real thing, but again benign reverb makes it bearable.

Encina - Una saniosa porfia

"Una saniosa porfia", a beautiful intabulation of Encinas song by Pascale Bouquet, who I met at the International Lute Festival in Antwerp. She has been editing the lute edition of the French Lute Society for over 20 years. (Click on headline to listen!)
