Hi Rob,

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.

Nice to be here, I had no idea this site existed until yesterday.  Looks like some familiar names around.

Dear Rob,

I don't understand anything about electronic social networking. All I want to do is get in touch with you to discuss a few things. I'm at chp1000@cam.ac.uk if you would like to talk.

Hi Rob, guitar playing is going well thank you.  I've been asked to learn some French dances to accompany a historical dance class so that's keeping me nice and busy.  Hope all's well with you.

Yes - making one would be a nice way of knocking the rust off my instrument making skills.  Must see if I can get a set of dimensions.

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!

I am glad to be here. I am technologically challenged. I have some music to contribute, but it is in Django format. I am not sure how to handle that. One piece is my arrangement for baroque guitar of Bach's 2nd cello suite. The other is a handful of pieces arranged for baroque guitar in a "suite format" of various pieces by Giuseppe Antonio Brescianello; I simply collected movements I liked the best in closely related keys and made my own suite.

Good Rob :), in many cases this paintings are not signed but you can find more searching "Pintura de Castas".

Cheers :)

Hi Rob, nice to meet you. I've seen you videos I like them! This is a 18th. century Mexican picture by José de Páez, a "mestizo" artist.
This picture is part of the "Pintura de Castas" collection. This kind of paintings were made to show the existing social groups in colonial America. Always this is exampled with a man and a woman of different social groups like a Spaniard and a black woman; and their son, the "new product" in this case is named "cambujo". There are a lot of examples like this in Mexico, Guatemala, Peru and Bolivia.
Greetings:)
