On this page you can see a sample score and hear hago play it.
It's one of our easiest pieces... "Bransle Simple" by Praetorius for Alto, 4 Prime, Bass and Contrabass guitars
This arrangement © Derek Hasted 2001
What's going on here?
The different keys in the score mean it isn't a discord at the end!
- The alto is playing five notes up, so its final D comes out as an A
- Similarly, the bass is playing four notes down, so it's final D is an A as well
