Thanks for your note. I'm glad to hear the harp lute is getting some more playing, it was in bits when it came to me and I wasn't sure until it was all glued up if it would be a viable playing instrument - it certainly surprised us all when it was done. With Rosemary Hodgson's help we got a good stringing for it and it has been going strong ever since. Hope you're enjoying it.
Hi Rob. I was quite inspired by Gordon's guitar playing on Saturday. I'd always thought of the 4-course guitar as not much more than an instrument for providing chordal accompaniments - but apprently not!
