Hey John, My group is actually Logic Pro9, an Apple product, not Pro Tolls, but I see you are using Sonar...not used that before...I guess you are happy with it though since you have used it a while! Thanks, Edward

Hi John

Thanks for the comments on scooterville,,,

regarding the tone bars   ,, I use a Dunlop Lap Dog ,, I think the model is ,, ( dont really get much choice around here),, tho I do have a Titanium bar Tim Scheerhorn gave me when I was over there ,, very light and for the right pieces ,, very fast and quite different sound

G'day John ,, thanks for the tip I might look out for some semi flat strings ,, esp for the Weissenborn ,, I think because it has a more delicate sound the string noise is more prominent

Cheers

Tony

Hey John,
Just joined this site yesterday and surprised to see some people with Madeiras. I have a 70's A30R that was my main guitar until I bought a Guild G37 in 09'. Your collection is amazing. I am more of a recreational player who does the occasional open mic.

I had a Cortez LP copy years ago and loved it...I have a pic of my son with it! I changed the tuners to Klusons and the pickguard, truss rod cover and switch ring to wood...it was a great sounding electric! Edward

Hey John,
There is a guy named Ted Hechtman who might message you here or in the Guild group...he owns a Madeira like yo and was asking if anyone else owned one, so I gave him your name so he could contact you here in the AG Community. Edward

john, i just realized i didn't thank you for your comments on the celtic page. thats actually the kind of response i was looking for. mr mcdougall seems to take a more purist approach thats not practical for most.

Good morning, John, Thanks for the invitation! And sincere thanks again for the information on copyright concerns. I suspect I will learn more as time goes on, and I will share any good new feedback. Best wishes, --- Rick

Hi, John!
Just accepted your friendship offer. I'm glad you liked the Portuguese guitars.
Now, about the instruments you're asking for, I imagine they must be these two:
laúd español and bandurria. I suggest you google "bandurria" and "laud espanol". I did it myself before writing this message, and found good results, with pictures, wikipedia articles, and full descriptions of both instruments. The laud espanol is NOT an evolution from old European lutes, but a 19th century Spanish creation, to which the name laud "lute" was given, since the old lutes were no longer in use, so the name was vacant.
I'm no expert on Spanish culture or instruments, and we in Portugal don't use those two instruments (them Spanish don't use our peculiar instruments, either, we are neighbours but culturally very different, we have eight and a half centuries of cultural divergence, not to mention other fields of divergence trough our long history). However, I do have Some spanish friends, namely some colleagues I met at a guitar making course I attended in Spain, professional luthiers, so, if you need a complete information about those, or other Spanish instruments, I can ask them, or maybe put them in touch with you. I understand you have a nice collection of instruments, and you play for more than 20 years, so I guess you must have some music to show. I'd like to hear from you and, by the way, to have your comment on my instruments and the music I posted in my page. Thanks for the friendsip offer!
