Fantasia Nº5
John Dowland

Classical Guitar

This is the piece that, after hearing it played by Julian Bream, made me want to learn to play the lute.

This arrangement requires the 3rd string to be tuned down 1 semitone to F♯. There are some fairly large stretches (as in the first bar), and some tricky passages (as in the penultimate bar). A capo on the second fret make these easier and brings the piece closer to the key of the original.
