Monday Motivation: O’Dette Edition
“Virtuosos believe in making things as easy as possible.”
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.
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.
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.
