"My guitar has those high frets but they are a bit out of tune. Since they are not on the fretboard, they cannot be tuned. However, the high parts sound acceptable."

Thanks Ed. I've been exploring earlier repertoire again and was wondering if you had the time to just play duets. It's about time anyway.

Just a few days to UK . Maybe yours will be via sea mail? I hope not! I will write my impressions later in the Thomann thread - it seems fine - no problems

Thanks for contacting me. I'm not familiar with the Thomann cittern. Is there is a link on the web, or can you give me some more information?

 

All best,

Hi Edward, surprised to hear from you. I have not decided whether to buy the Thomann Lute or the Thomann baroque guitar yet.  What sort of Lute are you playing?  It is a renaissance lute?  Are there teachers teaching lute in Singapore? You could SMS your handphone number to me and I can call you. My number is 012-3001567.

      Nice to hear someone playing lute so near to malaysia. I don't know if anyone playing lute in malaysia, but there are quite a lot of malaysians playing the Gambus ( a middle-eastern ud) it looks very much like a lute but it doesn't sound like one though.
