Wonderful!

I really like Dowland, and this piece is no exception. It must be very nice to be able to play such music.

As yet another superb video! Man is everyone here a virtuoso? "Thinking to myself, how can I make my guitar more useful?,,, maybe as firewood, or an endtable, maybe a giant ashtray."

Awesome job, reall inspiring performance!!

Thanks, Matthew,
That was a great piece. I love Dowland, love your playing, and would probably like the frog too. I've only been a member a short time or I would have made a point of listening to this years ago. Now I can go find some of your other pieces, too.
:bravo: :merci:

That must be the best "guitar' rendition of that Dowland lute classic that I've heard. Very nicely done.

Hi Matthew,
Thanks for this - I enjoyed listening to and watching your video. I have been tempted to work out and play this piece for a while now. All the more so after hearing you play it!

Many thanks

I just discovered Dowland, and at the moment I'm deciding which piece I want to learn first... Your performance inspires me and most probably it will be this piece I will start with! Thank you!
Found your performance of The Frog Galliard on youtube and was impressed, and now I'm finding out you were sharing it already such a long time on this forum. Shame on me...
