"Making the Transition from Guitar to Lute"
A reference for students of the classical guitar wishing to know more of its Renaissance and Baroque predecessor by Tristan d'Avignon

Basic Description:
This musicological paper covers the basics of lute technique, tablature and notation styles, in such a manner that most classical guitarists should be able to follow it naturally. I have also included some of my recommendations for modern literature on the lute and some ideas for pieces to tackle from their original sources.
