Mrs White’s Nothing by John Dowland

Mrs White’s Nothing by John Dowland (1563-1626)

John Dowland This tuneful dance by John Dowland should be played at a moderate to lively tempo. Note that the piece is made up of four eight-bar (measures) phrases, and that the last four bars of each phrase are a repetition of the first four. To achieve a good dynamic contrast either play the last four bars of each phrase more softly than the first four, or closer to the bridge (sul ponticello) for a more nasal tone color.

Notes
The chord voicing (i.e. the spacing of the notes of each chord) of this dance piece require lowering the 3rd string (G) to Gb to approximate the tuning of the lute. The G Major Chord, which appears 3 times, require failry large stretch, but it is one you can master with a bit of practice.

Renaissance Era. Some Barre Chords. Key of G. 13 Measures. EAD-Gb-be Tuning. Dotted Notes.
