Der grimmiger Tod – Gut Gesell du musst wandern

Description

This is a piece, or rather a medley, ¬†from my album “Around the Corner in 80 Minutes“. Two old German folk songs arranged for fingerstyle guitar in an interesting tuning: EADGAE. The first tune is – as the name “grim death” suggests (!) – very dark and sombre, but the second is by way of a contrast very bouncy and lively – a dance tune.

Here’s a video of me playing this piece live with my good friend and superlative accordion player Manfred Leuchter. The guitar takes up the melody at around 1:21
