Hi Valery,

When you use low G uke strings on your baritone uke, do you use the regular low G set, or do you need a special low G set for the baritone? Thanks! Paul

Hi Valéry
Many thanks for your kind comment. Carolan can sound beautiful on the 5-course guitar. It's the correct instrument for the period and there is evidence of guitarists in Ireland at the time.

Hi Val'ery,
Glad your taking up the ukulele. This instrument is a sleeper,
been playing it for many years. It can play any musical piece from any culture, in the right hands, I mean the most difficult pieces.

It takes a good 20 years to understand this instrument, I find the ukulele to be the best instrument in the world to learn timing and rythym on. Because of its size it gets you there quickly in "rythyming" which you can't learn from music schools. You find your hands quicker here.

I play the Keyboard, Guitar - (Hawaiian, contemporary, blues Jazz, latin,) love all cultural music. Play the Hawaiian lap top steal guitar, Bass, Auto harp (nice instrument), had a taste of the Mexican Harp, a very awsome instrument, sounds like 10 guitars playing. Love the harmonica.

If you like Hawaiian music, have you heard the Hawaiian slack key guitar ? It is very very pleasant sounds, much of the tunings are in open tunings, makes it much sweeter.

Nice chatting with you Valery.

To my Unknown Portuguese speaking friends to be, I need a translation
please, the term Machette de Braga, Does it mean, the Machette from Braga, Portugal ? and what does Machette mean, does it mean that particular knife, used to cut sugar cane with ?

Any one speaking portugues please respond.

Also anyone from around the city of Braga Portugal preferably a music authority on the Cavaquinho please refer them to me.

Have a few questions to finish my book on the "Origin of the Ukulele".

Thank you so much,

Charles (chuck) Kaimikaua

Hello Valéry and thanks! I forgot to mention that the song is by Antoine Mahaut (1719 - 1785), a Dutch composer :-) I'm playing basso continuo on a Mirecourt style guitar in this recording. Gut strings of course.

The words of the song are in quite hilarious archaïc Dutch.

Bonjour Valery,
C'est une guitare baroque "ni neuve - ni ancienne"; elle a été fabriquée en 1977 par Sanchis Carpio à Valence; je l'ai dénichée il y a un peu plus d'un an sur le site de Jérome Casanova luthier restaurateur d'instruments anciens à Clermont Ferrand. Le son est assez puissant, mais la table est un peu déformée. Je joue en amateur principalement la musique de François Campion (Nouvelles Découvertes) et celle de Robert de Visée et depuis peu j'accorde en mésotonique (1/6 ème de coma syntonique). Il subsite dans mon jeu quelques problèmes de timbre (généralement lors des ornements) dus aux doubles cordes que j'ai un peu de mal à maitriser.

Dans une semaine je devrais avoir mon nouveau Sellas, enfin son clone.
A bientôt
