Lesson notes

Francis was one of the more prolific English lutenists of the sixteenth century. Some of his pieces are among the earliest that have survived. Toy is a very short but typical example of a simple melody and chord progression.

It is in 6/4 time, which can present a bit of challenge at first but should feel natural with just a little practice. The piece is in the key of A and we review the A Major Scale before getting into the details.
