"Hello Andrei. I have been searching for a copy of the Von Held (Игнац ГЕЛЬД) tutor for a while now. So far without result. If you find a digital copy I would be very interested. Best wishes, Patrick "

Аndantе (Op.31, №8) by Fernando Sor -- Russian antique guitar

"Thanks, Stuart! The author of the first printed Guitar Method for 7-string guitar published first in 1798 (and then reedited in 1802, 1806 and 1812) was Czech Ignatz Von Held (1766-1816). In particular, this School contains some “beautiful…"

Аndantе (Op.31, №8) by Fernando Sor -- Russian antique guitar

"Hi Jelma, thank you for your question. 7 string guitar appears in Russia late 18th – early 19th century not as a solo, but accompaniment (for vocal part) instrument. Shortly after some Russian guitarists began using this guitar as a solo…"

Danza Polacca from "Codice Lauten-Buch" - Lute Guitar

"I can only add that "Kolomeyka" is still a very popular Carpathian (West-Ukrainian) folk dance and the word TANNTZ means in Hungarian ”Dance” too."

Danza Polacca from "Codice Lauten-Buch" - Lute Guitar

"The same Hungarian tune appears in other lute settings, as I recall in a collection of Hungarian dances compiled by Daniel Benko (unpublished).  And the original title is as I spelled it in all caps, "Tanntz" simply an antiquated…"

Danza Polacca from "Codice Lauten-Buch" - Lute Guitar

"I use a special set of nylon guitar strings  "Magma Transpositor" (Argentina) to tune my lute-guitar with the first string in G. The strings are thinner that the ones from a usual classical guitar light tension set."

Danza Polacca from "Codice Lauten-Buch" - Lute Guitar

"I have access to a lute-guitar... however, it looks far more like a lute than the one you have. The fretboard is not raised and the bowl seems larger. Does you have any idea about appropriate string tension?  String length is close to the…"

Danza Polacca from "Codice Lauten-Buch" - Lute Guitar

"Dear Arthur! I am really impressed by your very important 'historical' comment. The word "Tannz" means "Dance" in Russian, for example. That's why Chilesotti titles this peace as "Polacca" - "Slavic…"
