About me:
I used to play classical guitar but gave up many years ago when I cut off my nails to concentrate on lute. I play an 8 course renaissance lute, 13 course baroque lute and 14 course theorbo/Chitarrone, all made by James Marriage.
I have just acquired an 1836 Louis Panormo which I have fitted with gut strings so now I can play classical guitar again.
