After seeing this picture of your girl with braces I had to rethink my remark about your vengance! If I were a conspiracy theorist I could imagine that your absence from this thread means you're working on something terrible indeed. Something innovative, thorough and... medieval! :shock:

In my last posting I worry that maybe the recorded sound in the laundromat wasn't clean enough. So here is a another original composition from Juan Calderon.

Hi ! very nice composition, performance and recording. I am sorry that I havent posted for a longer period now. I have been very busy with other subjects than guitars, like dentist,taxes, condos, family properites and other issues which needed my attention, and I also still run another business besides building guitars. I have in fact a project for a prototype but I had no oportunity to work on it. You are a luthier too, if I remember right. What are you building actually?

OK. Glad you're not up to anything sinester. :D

I moved about a year ago. Had to renovate a little house from the floor to ceiling. About 2 years ago I got into a conversation with another member here who was building a Russian 7 string guitar. I had never heard any of that repertoire and I love it. I decided to build one and got the body done and the neck ready to put together last June. It will be #28. At the same time I started #27 based on the design of Jacobi, you know, where the fan is reversed. I figure since I'm a bass ackward kind of guy this might work out better. :) I broke the luthier code though. Am making several changes at once: double sides, different brace patterns and making the taper of the body narrower at the tail, which idea I got from Arthur Overholtzer.

I've been talking to another member @goinbaroke about his first build and reviewing the Cumpiano & Natalson book. It has been a great motivator for me, so I started #29 using their method and getting organized in a hands on way.

Also its fire season and we live in the forest. I've been clearing dead wood debree seems like forever. I recall some bad fires in Portugal last year. We've been threatened every year for the last five years and the smoke has caused us to evacuate four times.

Your thread here has given me great pleasure. Discovering new things. Especially the accordian! This one is still copyright I believe. I listened to 4 or 5 versions of this and though other versions were played with more flourish, this is my favorite.

Hi Marshall,

I like the accordian video very much.

A big part of the fires in Portugal are of criminal nature, because of the many interessts involved with the subject, as fire fighting and subcontractors, paper mills, timber business in general, and now lithium mining also and other obscure things. On the other hand we have extremly bad forest management and just nobody does listen to what the forest experts recommend, which would be to have a natural mixt vegetation with original species.

Diffrent aproaches on barcing and building parameters are very usefull. I use to build a hibrid classcial with mixt bracing, it is a X bracing with a smaller fan under the bridge and a few other bars. It has very good sound qualities and about the best trebles of any insrument that I have ever built.

I have a project for an ultralight laminated all balsa top and I am really curious about it. On the other hand my own instrument is a Hernandez e Aguado style traditional model with a rather heavy spruce top and it has a surprisingly loud and penetrating sound.

But in the end I need to sell the instruments, and my aproach is one thing, and another what the players are after, and it is not easy to understand what is really better as guitar building becomes more and more a fashion trade where most players don't keep the same instrument for so long and are always looking for something new

This is one of the outstanding personalities of the earlier classical guitar generation in Portugal: José Duarte Costa - his composition "procissão" performed by Pedro Rodrigues

This must be the rarest of all. A baroque composer that was a guitarist! Do you think he wrote it out for harpsichord and then trancribed it? :D
