Valdambrini: Corrente Nona

Valdambrini: Corrente Nona

The title page

I’m still mining James Tyler’s book on Baroque guitar for pieces to play on the low-G ukulele. This one is a corrente (= courante, corrento), a lively Italian courtship dance.

There are quite a few strummed chords, so you’ll be able to spank your plank with this one! There’s not too much to worry about. The triplets are very fast, and played as pull-offs. (To get the tempo stuck in my head, I started playing the piece with only the first note of the triplets, and then they seemed not too bad when I came to play them.) Valdambrini didn’t specify the nature of the ornaments; see notes at the end of the transcription.
