FLOW MY TEARS (Lachrimae Pavane) – John Downland – Full Tutorial with Tab – Fingerstyle Guitar

Flow My Tears performed by Robert Lunn

I have always loved this piece. I first heard it in a music appreciation class in college with a countertenor (first time I had heard that) and a lute. John Dowland originally composed as an instrumental with the title, Lachrimae Pavane. 

I’ve always loved Julian Bream’s version of this and if you haven’t heard it before I would recommend checking it out.

I tried to keep this arrangement as easy as possible while still keeping the integrity of the song. I hope you enjoy this guitar lesson. You can see more lessons like this at my guitar school found at my website.

low My Tears, also known as Lachrimae Pavane, is a beautiful piece composed by John Dowland in 1596. The piece was originally composed as a solo lute piece but eventually words were added to the melody. Nobody knows for sure who wrote the words but many scholars believe the words were written by John Dowland. Full video can be seen at my guitar school found on my website.
