Original title: Greensleeves Composer: Anon./Francis Cutting (fl. 1583-c1603) Source: Audio CD "Greensleeves" (Deutsche Grammophon/Polydor, 1982) Performer: Gцran Sцllscher Transcribed by: Ralf Flicker (rflicker@mac.com) Date: 22 June 2004 (first transcribed in 1994) Revisions to this file posted on: http://homepage.mac.com/rflicker/tabs.html Originally submitted to Weed's Classical Guitar Tablature page ============================================================= Notes: Cutting's (original?) version of this renaissance classic offers a a bit more for the classical guitarist than the traditionally lame christmas ditty. Sцllscher plays it on an 11-string alto guitar, tuned as the normal renaissance lute (Bb-C-D-E-F/G-c-f-a-d-g). My transcription for the standard 6-string guitar uses E-A-D-G-B-d tuning. At the time (10 yrs ago), it seemed like a reasonable compromise, rendering most of the transcription very true to the original while still being possible to play. I think now that standard tuning would have been better, if slightly more compliacted to play, but now I can't be bothered to redo it all, sorry. The one I I give here is still a good version for the 6-string. As intro (and outro), Sцllscher plays the more commonly known version of Greensleeves, which you may find a dozen or more transcriptions of to choose from. Comments and corrections welcome! ============================================================= Notation used in this tab: | bar divisor ( arpeggiate chord [1] bar numbering X,Y,Z abbreviated notation for positions 10, 11 and 12 ============================================================= Greensleeves, Anon./F.
