Dear Jacob,
This is very helpful and thanks very much. I am an amateur classical guitarist and have recently started learning the lute with Roxana Gundry who pointed me to your brilliant ‘lockdown lute’ series. Lockdown has been far more bearable with the Lute for company. I look forward to any more you can do. Best regards from sunny Devon!

Hi Jacob,

I started playing the lute a couple of years ago and , armed with my Martin Shephard lute , I have a number of your cds, all very instructive and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you also for these videos. Best wishes, Martin Kaszak.

Thanks all for the kind comments. The dance was a Pavan from the Capirola Lute Book (c. 1500). Sorry I speak too softly, and that I don’t have higher-quality recording equipment. I will try very hard to be more audible in future installments!

Thank you for this, Jacob. I also want to say i really enjoy all of your Magnatune releases and look forward to more.

Julie Oldfield - April 17, 2020

Thank you – very helpful to see you playing and demonstrating your technique. I look forward to next week.

Eva McComb - April 17, 2020

Thank you so much Jacob!

Alan Hoyle - April 16, 2020

Thoroughly enjoyable, Jacob (and EMS) – thank you! And the historic re-enactment of the giant leap for mankind, when the quill was dispensed with, was so vividly true-to-life that I felt I was actually there, 500 years ago.
I am looking forward to the next talk – and, also, to my Skype lesson with you in 12 days’ time.

Daniel Sebrian - April 16, 2020

Thank you! From Brazil.

Ron Lofgren - April 16, 2020

Thank you! I have only recently taken up the lute after being fascinated by the instrument and its music my entire professional life as a music educator. I look forward to the next installment! God bless you. Stay safe!

James Louder - April 16, 2020

Thanks so much for doing this, Jacob. I’m sure I’ll learn lots, besides the obvious pleasure of getting to see your beautiful technique draw that beautiful sound from that gorgeous lute. I’m greatly looking forward to next Wednesday.
