GUEST,KP Sting Playing the Lute on BBC website (18) Sting Playing the Lute on BBC website 07 Nov 08


BBC website has some clips of Sting talking about and playing the Lute. One part of the discussion made me blink - was John Dowland the first singer-songwriter? Interested to hear some more expert views on what he's saying. I note the lutes in question have a lot of non-fretted sympathetic strings. My mental picture of a lute (from Julian Bream etc) is a much smaller instrument.

Of course its clearly not England's national instrument as it originates from the Middle East....
