[Kokoro for Theorbo – self-published edition 2009, Revised Edition 2020 (discontinued)]
Revised Edition January 2020, CLM02-0614152 (SELF-PUBLISHING)
Modification in the revised edition: corrections, new tablature font, new score layout. Corrections are continuously documented and the description of playing techniques has been continuously improved to this day. A further revision was carried out on July 2022. Besides minor improvements, I decided to make the main tempo more flexible: Tempo giusto [quarter] = 46 ― 54.
Kokoro-ERRATA for the self-published edition – updates 24 June 2021, 16 July 2022, 21 July 2022
Kokoro for Theorbo – Revision August 2022 published at Bergmann Edition (BE-220818)
With this publication of the revision August 2022 at the Bergmann Edition (BE-220818), the previous self-publication of the piece will not be continued.
The notes of the piece itself remain unchanged, but the basic tempo has been slowed down a little. The explanations in „Notation & Playing Techniques“ and the notation itself have been improved. The notation of the bass courses now corresponds to the more readable standard. I highly recommend using this edition.

Notes on Descriptions of Playing Techniques
Nail Attack (plucked string instruments)
The text of the nail attack in the explanation of playing techniques and notation of the pieces Kokoro, Geister / Ghosts etc. has undergone several changes. You can find descriptions of this technique in articles, videos etc. about guitar fingerstyle techniques. Sometimes, contrary to my definition, a kind of golpe is included. It is important that the fingernail surfaces (more precisely the nail plates) of the plucking hand strike on the strings with finger impulse.
Harmonics + fundamental (plucked string instruments)
The text of “Harmonics + fundamental” (formely “Half harmonics”) in the explanation of playing techniques and notation of the pieces Kokoro, Geister / Ghosts, Guitar Spots etc. has undergone several changes (** for theorbo only**):
Flageoletts + Grundton
Bevorzugte Position: in Stegnähe. Wenn möglich, spiele in „Daumen-außen Haltung“. Während der Finger anschlägt, berührt die Fläche des Daumennagels leicht den Chor. Finger und Daumen verlassen den Chor gleichzeitig. Der Grundton (der normale Ton des Chores) sollte „durchscheinen“. Durch wiederholtes Anschlagen bei variierender Position der Anschlagshand werden wechselnde Flageoletttöne erzeugt.
Harmonics + fundamental
Preferred position: near the bridge. If possible, play “thumb-outside”. While the finger is plucking, the surface of the thumbnail is touching the course slightly. Finger and thumb are leaving the course simultaneously. The fundamental (the normal tone of the course) should “shine through”. While varying the position of the plucking hand, a repeated plucking creates changing harmonics.
