Lesson notes

Lesson For Two Lutes is a duet from the Dowland Lute Book, a 16th century manuscript of popular pieces collected by John Dowland.

There are two 8-measure sections, and typically the players would switch parts at the repeats. It is in the key of A and the two parts generally play melody lines a third apart.

The last segment is a play along companion, starting with Lute 2, so the student should start with Lute 1.
