I started transcribing a few solos of Tobias Hume's tablature solos from The First Part of Ayres a while back, just for myself.  This year I got my teeth into it and did all the solos for regular tuning - a bigger job that I had in mind.  Now I'm done, I can sort of read tablature!  If you fancy downloading a copy, I would appreciate a coffee or two in return; it will certainly make up for hour after hour standing at my computer.  Enjoy!
