Now that is different. I think I will happily stick to just learning the guitar.

I'm wondering what strings would be best on my theorbo? DR Sunbeams or DR Rares? Or maybe some Thomastik-Infelds - I think they're on sale for $199 this weekend.

And anybody try replacement locking tuners on this beast?
Sorry - couldn't resist making the joke!
The theorbo does sound amazing (as does the performer)! Thanks for sharing!

PS - How would I tune it to DADGAD?

Unless you're standing in the "John Lennon position" on stage, you're going to have some very irate bandmates...

Strangely enough, yes, on TV most nights as one is being shown (not played) in a series of insurance company ads.

What would be the best type of strings, capo, and pick? (I just thought I'd ask...it seemed quiet around here.)

Default Those tie-on frets, though

Very interesting, at around 6:40, when he started sliding the tie-on frets around, and talking about temperament.
