Monday Motivation: O’Dette Edition by Christopher Davis “Virtuosos believe in making things as easy as possible.” –Philip Hii Today we feature lutenist Paul O’Dette performing A Fancy by John Dowland. This recording is from O’Dette’s recording of Dowlands Complete Lute Works. 2 Responses 2009 November 3 dfsaf permalink You quote Philip Hii. Have you seen his “Art of Virtuosity for Guitar” and “Art of Virtuosity”? I have not, and wonder what it’s all about. 2009 November 3 Christopher Davis permalink Actually, the quote is from that book. It’s quite good, but not for beginners. I haven’t looked at his “Art of Virtuosity for Guitar,” though. The “Art of Virtuosity” is more philosophical, and goes into some basic things behind being a virtuoso.
