"Dear Jelma, Any information about this strange, and unwanted, colourisation of the site? As said, plain simple black on a white background is by far the easiest to  read - on whatever device! regards Martyn"

"I agree with you. Especially having the text in white on any sort of background is a nightmare for anyone even with eyesight problems. "

I suppose there may be a reason why there's been a recent change in the colouring of this page with a pale light blue now being much used. Perhaps it's my eyesight, but I really do find good old black font much easier to read than this rather glaring colour.Might it revert please?regardsMartynSee More

Martyn Hodgson replied to Lex Eisenhardt's discussion The guitar in the sixteen-seventies
"Thank you for this Lex. Yes, as said earlier, the lute tablature tuning checks serve the same purpose as those on the guitar (ie to check whether 'notes' are sounding the same in whatever octave).  Accordingly, I'm not convinced…"

Martyn Hodgson replied to Lex Eisenhardt's discussion The guitar in the sixteen-seventies
"Dear Lex, First, best wishes for the season and let's hope 2021 will be a bit better than 2020 for concertising! But apologies for coming to this thread rather late. One thing stands out to me:  it's probably unwise to assume any…"

Martyn Hodgson replied to Poul Hansen's discussion Single or double gut fret on baroque guitar?

Martyn Hodgson replied to Michael's discussion Any ideas what it is??
"I've just noticed this old posting. Pure speculation of course, but it may be a German invented instrument based very roughly on the Peruvian charango but with six courses rather than the usual  five. The trade name Yambras (see label)…"

Martyn Hodgson replied to Martyn Hodgson's discussion Realisation of some eighteenth century Spanish six course guitar tablature
"Yes - the mandora is louder than a 'baroque' lute - partly due to higher string tensions possible (since fewer courses) but also the use of overwound strings from the earliest (partly the reason I've previously suggested which allowed…"

Monica Hall replied to Martyn Hodgson's discussion Realisation of some eighteenth century Spanish six course guitar tablature
"Thanks for this. I was able to open the files and save them for further reference. I don't have a 6-course guitar but your realization looks very convincing. Thanks for the link to Zincke as well. I enjoyed listening to it. The mandora is quite…"

Martyn - I sent you a couple of e-mails which you haven't replied to.  One was sent back by your SP - unable to deliver.   Do you know what the problem is?
