comment Problem with fingering
Are we to assume that you are referring to playing the guitar? You did not say what instrument you play.

comment Was the viola da gamba or violin particularly associated with England in the late 16th or early 17th century?
The point is that the newer violin grew in popularity rapidly, and overtook the popularity of the viol (the treble instrument in the viola da gamba family). There was a considerable period of overlap, however, when you could expect to hear either one.

comment Which disco tracks were the most influential in electronic music?
This should stay closed. It is an entirely subjective topic that would cause the wrong kind of open-ended discussion according to the guidelines of this site. Yes, every question has some degree of subjectivity, but you have to draw a line somewhere. This one is totally subjective.

What nation do you live in? I'm sure prices vary a great deal with nationality and location.

I recently started to learn to play viola da gamba, having come from playing guitar. The connection for me is obvious. I do know one player who plays both viola da gamba and lute, but most viol players I know have come from playing regular cello or violin and are totally ignorant of the gamba/guitar/lute connection. My friend, well-known USA viola da gamba and Baroque cello virtuoso Brent Wissick told me, point blank, "the viola da gamba is a lute that you play with a bow." music.unc.edu/facstaff/wissick
