"Welcome to the EG&V community, Paul!  About your question above, I don't know that Michael Walker book. If you could give us more information maybe we can help. Is it a book for renaissance guitar?"

Profile Information

About me:
I studied guitar with Tom Burmanje at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and with Gordon Crosskey at the RNCM in Manchester. Masterclasses with Leo Brouwer and David Russell. I graduated as a musicologist in 2013, with a thesis on the composer Pauline Duchambge (1776-1858).

Currently I am working on a PhD about guitar culture in the 1700s (at the Uuniversity of Southampton, UK). I have published articles on guitar history in Early Music and TVNM.

I have been playing 19th century guitars for about 20 years now, after spotting & buying a lovely Mirecourt guitar at a local auction. I have been performing on gut strings, without nails, right from the start. Among other instruments, I own a ca 1830 Franz Brunner (Vienna), a ca 1855 D & A Roudhloff (London), and a Enrique Recio (Cadiz) from 1862.

As a performer, I mostly accompany singers, such as Christopher Kale, tenor, Sigurd van Lommel, altus and Valeria Mignaco, soprano. I teach guitar, lute and ukulele.

Thank you Jelma for welcoming me to your website. I have recently aquired my first early 19th century guitar after collecting several vintage Spanish guitars. I am eager to learn more about my latest addition and antique guitars in general. I cannot offer any knowledge on your site but look forward to gaining some knowledge. I will post some photos on the forum and look forward to receiving some information on my guitar. Thank again. Pat
