I'm thinking of contacting Göran Söllscher, Peder Riis and maybe Anders Miolin for interviews on the altoguitar during the summer.

But I want you to come up with qeustions for them. What would you want me to ask them if I get the interviews?

Is there any questions that would be interesting to get answered by any of the Swedish masters, Peder Riis, Göran Söllscher and Anders Miolin?

Well, you asks for questions:

How did you come to play the alto-guitar?
How do you deal with the lack of arrangements?
Would you consider to publish your own arrangements on the internet?
Do you consider the alto-guitar to be more popular now than before?
How is the reception among your public when you give concerts?
What are your experience regarding the projection of your instrument in concert?
Have you invited contemporary componists to compose for alto-guitar?

I think these questions would be interesting to hear the answers to.

You might also ask for an interview with Carsten Grøndahl who I think is a musical director in Malmö and have an alto-guitar duo and he has made at least one CD with his Alto-guitar - you can look him up on the internet.

Yes Toffe,


I think JoMa pointed essential good questions.

May I add:
-Wich string do they use?
-Wich tuning do they use?

-If they change often the tuning and choice of strings (tension or brand),
-If they do change:
is it for style of music purpose (for instance baroque vs renaissance, switching tuning and strings for one style of music, then coming back for another sort of music etc...) or is it personnal evolution/choice.

Thanks

christophe

Christoffe,
Maybe our moderator knows the answers on the choice of strings used by the virtuosos listed, I have no idea, sorry. A set of strings available in most guitar shops that do work reasonably well is the medium tension set by Hannabach. These will tune to G for the first six strings without difficulty. The bass five strings are just the sixth string. As an altoguitar will come with tuning in G, and tensions are not high, they last well, so, no need to buying many packets.
As to tuning, for renaissance, lute tuning of the third at a, and for baroque, third at b flat, though a may be convenient for some pieces. The basses are tuned to suit the piece. For example, if the transposing key is D, then the 8th will be usually be raised half a tone to E. If the transposing key is in one or two flats, the 9th will usually be lowered a half tone to D flat, and so on.
James.
