I used to enjoy watching Richard Greene as Robin Hood when I was a boy. And, occasionally there was a strolling minstrel with a lute. I took to that music. It made sense. So, would you like the joy of playing in a Renaissance court? Buy this book. The first piece is very pretty and immediately gets you off to a happy start. You can play it within an hour.
I'm what I would call an intermediate player. I know my chords, folk and jazz, up and down the neck and most stretches come easily and I can do a bit of picking, but no claw hammer yet. I've been playing about four years. If you have the Hal Leonard wonderful ukulele fingerpicking book this will at first go seem easier but equally as beautiful. Buy the book just to listen to the recording. High g is essential for the right tone. It works with low g but doesn't have the Renaissance feel.
