    On the Sellas certainly. As I said, flamboyant! A spot of mild porn with your custom build, sir?

    Unfortunately, they feed back way too much when you try to play the intro to "Pinball Wizard" in front of some Marshall stacks.

    Is that Strad's hand reflecting in the guitar's back?

    And this is a classic piece of repertoire for baroque guitar



    Not as beautiful as 16th century lute music from England, to me, but still wonderful. I played this tune (the prelude, in fact) on standard classical guitar, but it never sounded as convincing…
