After a lull in the market, I sort of shifted to archlutes and baroque guitars. --A few ren lutes when called on. I make my neck extensions exclusively of unveneered redwood after witnessing your incredibly light theorbo.
I played my first continuo gig on March 7 with Sacramento Baroque Soloists on one of my own archlutes. They said I did fine, but I was very nervous and felt very small amongst the pros! Now, I really need to hit the continuo books hard. I hope they use me again some time--It was a rush!
