These books, devoted primarily to music for the vihuela, voice and harp also contain six pieces that are described by The New Harvard Dictionary of Music as the earliest printed music for the guitar. In this case- that would be the 4-course Renaissance guitar. In Guitar Music from Tres libros de música, George Washington University guitar instructor Eric Waters has transcribed and edited these six selections from the original 16th century tablature. Each piece is presented both in standard musical notation and in a modern adaptation of the original tablature (with mensural rhythms printed above). Tablature and music are printed separately to eliminate page turns. The companion CD for this book was recorded on a 1995 José Ramirez 1-A traditional concert guitar (650 mm string length), with a capo at the third fret to better approximate the range of the Renaissance guitar and facilitate use of the original fingering. While the Renaissance guitar was tuned proportionately the same as the first four strings of the modern guitar (D-G-B-E low to high), the 1st piece in the book is tuned like a 4-string version of dropped-D tuning (C-G-B-E). These arrangements judiciously avoid the use of the 5th and 6th strings of the modern guitar to better emulate the original Renaissance model.

Advantages: some of the 'old' cast return Disadvantages: no Sid or Kenny - hard to compete with their memory
...Carry On Columbus was an attempt to resurrect the spirit & success of the Carry On films, but coming some fourteen years after the last one, it was a case of 'too little, too late'.
The story is based around the tale of Christopher Columbus & his discovery of America. Jim Dale pleasingly takes the title role & seeing him in another Carry On role is the best thing about the film.
It is a nice...

If you don?t like Johnny Guitar you cannot like cinema was the opinion of director and critic Francois Truffaut, who thought director Nicholas Ray, a ?poet of nightfall?. In general the cahier du cinema bunch, the French film critics who mainly formed the 60s new wave (Truffaut again, Goddard, Chabrol et al) held Ray up practically as a paragon. This is perhaps a mite...
