Viols have interesting sound. It is not exactly cello.



I didn't know about Forqueray. They have it as CD of the month.

Aha, Forqueray and Marais - very sophisticated music indeed Smiley

Much music for the viola da gamba was notated in tablature, rather than on staves - for example in this piece by that most eccentric of English composers for the viol - Captain Tobias Hume Smiley

Thanks very much for that. I saw this notation used to write Irish songs. I find it difficult. It will take me a long time to figure out.
But I learned that this notation was taught in schools here in Ireland as recently as 50 years ago (maybe more).

What was the notation used for in Ireland?

For the viol it's very logical - it shows the six strings, and where to put your fingers on them Smiley

I had a chance to learn the viol for a while at college, and the tablature notation isn't hard to learn... in fact after a few weeks it becomes very comfortable Smiley
