Played by Dale Harris on a 13crs Swan-neck Baroque lute based on Leopold Widhalm 1755 (MIR903) unplugged. Many more affordable yet luthier-crafted and customisable instruments in stock or to order at www.jminstruments.com. The instrument is a copy based on the original but tuned like a guitar, making life easier for guitarists wanting to play the lute with having to learn tab as in this case. The instrument has a powerjack and battery pack installed as commissioned by Dr Dale Harris, made by www.jminstruments.com. It is not plugged in here due to the small quiet venue but is usefull for performances in noisy/large venues. Now the electric C19th mandora is available (2018)

There is no need to cut the essential fingernails or change technique since there is enough space under the rose. The sweet qualities of the lute are kept by authentic construction and Nylgut strings which are the modern equivalent in sound to gut, but the stability of modern strings.

There is no need to cut the essential fingernails or change technique since there is enough space under the rose. The intention is to make lute playing easier for the guitarist and retaining the unique qualities of the baroque lute such as the bell like sound of the basses with their octaves played together, ideal for Weiss.

If the player desires, after becoming familiar with the basses, the tuning could be changed back to standard baroque lute by buying different strings and begining to explore the vast repertoire that tablature offers too, two instruments in one.
