Tarleton’s Riserrectione (Poulton No. 59) by John Dowland (1563-1626) – Also called Tarleton’s Resurrection. Originally for lute. Sheet music and TAB for classical guitar. Includes a Notation Only Edition and a Notation + Modern TAB Edition. Left hand fingering. The level is Intermediate (Grade 6), generally straight forward but a few tricky chords shapes to jump into. You have to tune the 3rd string down to F# (Dowland’s lute tuning) for this edition (see the video below). John Dowland was an English Renaissance composer, lutenist, and singer. He is best known today for his melancholy songs and lute compositions. He’s one of my favourite composers of the Elizabethan era and all time.
