    Fantastic 17th century print you turned up for Syntagma Musicum II, by Michael Praetorius. Me like!

      Thanks, Chris! And, thanks too for your inspiration while writing this 🙂 We appreciate it.

  2. In my video “Das Scheitholt” I play with my left middlefinger. Normaly the index finger is used but The circular daw hit this index finger. It’s ok now again !!! Today I finished a Scheitholt after the measurements by Praetorius. It’s 110 cm long and with a string length of 931 mm.
    best regards
