Lesson notes

Tanz is a lighthearted Renaissance piece which would have been played on the lute, likely to accompany a dance. It is played in Dropped D Tuning, in 3/4 time, with a steady bass pattern playing the open sixth, fifth, and fourth strings as quarter notes in each measure. There is a simple melody played using the notes of a D scale on the top three strings. The challenge in this piece is to keep the 3-note bass pattern consistent while playing the melody smoothly.
