the information you provide for the octave stringing on the 3rd course is particularly interesting to me - also because of it's relation to the violin.
i assume the violin would have been prevelant in ensemble play at that time and therefore something of a (pre-standard) touch-stone for everyone tuning up. i also assume that a bourdon in the treble range would be better suited to something small and strummy - as opposed to something larger, to be plucked with the fingers. would a bourdon on one course offer advantages over those on another course? ... or is it simply a matter of personal choice, relating to size of instrument, repertoire and tuning? - bill --- Monica Hall <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Many thanks to Rob - who has valiantly made the > changes and made it > available again.
