Have you ever played SW39, the Grande Partita?
The French overture at the start is such a joy.

It is really interesting. It looks a hard job to make a guitar like that by a luthier!
So the strings have different sizes?
How long time are you playing now this type of guitar! forgive if there is a specific name for this guitar i don't know! and im sorry for so many questions!
I've been playing that type of guitar for three years now. It's been quite an ordeal to learn to play and to dampen all those basses and I had to learn to read the tablatures at the same time.
The strings are of different sizes in order to achieve the right tension.
My guitar was made by Michael Thames, a luthier in New Mexico. He call this model a Dresden Guitar. There are a few other luthier who make that type of guitar as well. I received lately a comment on YT from a luthier who build thirteen string guitar in Peru or Bolivia, I don't remember. If you want I can retrace it for you.

How is your guitar tuned?
If you want to play baroque lute music, just go for 13! No need for any arrangement and if you can play with 11 it's no big deal to play with two extra strings.Conall wrote: ↑Fri May 31, 2019 6:08 amLovely guitar there (& playing) Alain.
I'll admit I'm finding 11 strings hard enough (hitting the right extra basses, not the 1st 6 strings) so I'm not sure I'll ever go as far as 13. I tried the "never look at the right hand" approach but started just ingraining mistakes so now I have a brass coloured 7th & do occasionally look (as you do). I'm hoping if I make sure I'm hitting the correct string (when I really need to look) that muscle memory will eventually kick in & won't have to look anymore! It's either that or write loads of boring rh exercises for the basses - but I'm too anxious to get on with my Weiss, Bach & Dowland!
