I do what I like to do. If I’m a virtuoso, that’s great.
If not, I’m doing what I like to do. I like more the simpler version, although I can play cutting’s one too. According to the book I have, Cutting’s version was originally composed for the piano, and the guitar piece we play is a transcription. It says on wikipedia that Cutting wrote the piece.
I agree with you: I’ve publication by Jeffery that includes a facsimile of 16 century tablature entitled “Gleenesleeves by Maister Frances Cutting”, but I haven’t the book at hand so I can’t tell you if says if it was in Cuttings hand, someone else might know.
