Paganini: "Variazioni di bravura" (on Caprice No.24) for violin and guitar

Can anyone tell me if it is known for certain that Paganini composed the guitar part for "Variazioni di bravura" (on Caprice No.24) for violin and guitar?  Does an autograph MS exist proving that Paganini composed the guitar part, and not that another guitarist added it later?Thanks, ThomasSee More

"Jelma, when you say Holst's Scottish songs, which Holst is this? I assume not Gustav. I think Gustav arranged some English folk songs? Thomas"

Early 19th Century English Songs for Two Singers

Could anyone direct me to any early to mid 19th Century pieces for guitar and two voices?  In particular, I would like to find pieces for tenor and mezzo-soprano, or tenor and soprano.  Being able to access pdf files would be especially helpful, or to know who sells any collections.Thanks for any help folks might be able to send.Thomas TallantSee More

With the exchange rate what it is domestically built theorbos are very much in demand among young students. That should be easy to sell and no one can afford to order from abroad these days. That should be good for the progress of domestic building.

I always re-cut the nut spacing one instruments, both for myself and in various arrangements for students of widely differing sizes and repertoires. Make it your own.

Boone is lovely although the last time I was there it was in a snowstorm on the first days of Spring some years ago. My former student Dan Swenberg often goes up there for vacation to a cabin owned by his parents, I think. Have you ever been in touch with Gary Boye, who is, I think at the State University there?
