Nice sound... Pretty much using the "Thumb under" RH technique on the lute I see, Do you use the same sort of technique on guitar (I see a Godin SA in the background...)? Also, the scales appear to be a combination pipm or pim, or pmi, is that correct? Using nails?
Thanks, Don

Hi Don
yes I use thumb under technique on the lute, this puts the fingers at a better angle for contacting the pairs of strings on each course. I use regular classical guitar technique on the guitar but if I've been playing a lot of lute it sometimes takes a while to get back into "thumb out". On extended scale runs I use pi, but where there is a mixture of scales and bass notes then I mix p,i & m as needed. I don't use nails which makes classical guitar more difficult.
Glad you enjoyed the video by the way,
Steve

Wonderful version. This is one of my favorite pieces by Dowland. There are some nice arrangements of The Frog Galliard for the guitar too, but i think it sounds better played by the lute.
