English guitar is fun, isn't it?  I got one in 2012, thinking I might use it for War of 1812 programming.  Never did but played it a bit and enjoyed it.  I have a nine-string, four courses of double strings and one single.  I ended up tuning it like a banjo but in relative tuning.  Made for some nice-sounding slower tunes.  Bought mine from this guy.....   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJ2XsgHUV8Q

Lovely sound there, Mark.

You are a master at taking a simple tune and making it completely delightful without overloading it with fussy stuff... you keep its charm intact.  Your videos are always so musically inspiring!

Woooo 1780!? It's quite the beautiful tune. Seems great to dance to. I am a guitar ignoramus and cannot tell if it is one or two tracks playing together. Either way, really great sound
