comment How much baroque music was derived from improvisation?
Certainly everything I've written, music and lyrics. Perhaps a better way to ask this would have been "how much of what we consider 'baroque music' is an improvisation that jelled, and how much of it was written in a fixed form from the beginning?" But I think (hope) that my point came across.

Definitely off-topic here, perhaps migrate to Audio-Video Production?

comment Incessant Buzzing on Third String (Classical Guitar)
Is this is a recent development, it sounds like a fret wear problem. At least you know which frets you use the most now!

comment Removing human voice from songs
This is off-topic here, I believe. Perhaps migrate it to the AVP site?

Which of these three questions do you want answered? This is unclear and confusing; vote to close.

comment Acoustic guitar: How to stop right index finger nail from wearing away?
I'm mostly fixing this through changing how I hold the pick, but I'll also try a small finger pick on my right index finger and see if it helps any. Having many tools for the same problem is a great thing, IMO.

@WheatWilliams - I was just hired by this band, but yes, I think that's fairly accurate. "Ren-friendly world folk fusion", perhaps. (I'm relatively new to ren faire music, so forgive the ambiguities here.)

I see it, they seem to hover around US$2k. I'm trying to find a video that has an example of one of these used as a bass in a ren or folk band.

@slim - Renfest band, but not tied down to period accuracy. (There's a lot of Celtic and Indian music in the mix.)

That would be a great solution, but I suspect for the long term. What's the price range on these?

(1) It's a renaissance band, and an upright doesn't fit with the period, unfortunately. Also, (2) I don't know how to play one.
