hans Neusidler
Hans Neusidler was one of the leading figures in the development of 16th cnetury German Lute music. He achieved considerable success not only as a performer and composer, but also as a lute maker and teacher. His sons, Melchior and Conrad (he had 13 children altogether), were also prominent lutenists and composers in their own right.






Notes
Renaissance Era. 3/4 Time Signature. Key of D. Uniform rhythm. 24 measures. 2 pages. Easy Guitar Solo Piece. Lute or Vihuela. Tuning 3rd string don half step to f#. “Gassenhauer” is german for popular melody. I guess this number as a hit during the renaissance.
