  • Hi Everyone and welcome to Greensleeves lesson! :)

    This time we go back to the Renaissance period in the 16th century, and this romanesca (song form composed of four chords with a simple, repeating bass) is the most popular one from that period. It is widely believed, but unproven, that it was composed by King Henry VIII for his lover and queen consort Anne Boleyn.

    When arranging this piece for guitar I tried to get the spirit of that time, the piece is written in A Minor and uses A Dorian mode that was very popular in Renaissance and Baroque.

    Feedback is welcome and let me know if you need any help. :)

    Time signature: 2/4
    Key signature: A Minor
    Tempo: 54 bpm

    Have fun! :)
