1. Andy Robinson: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/samsweeney123">Sam Sweeney</a> You could try talking to <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a> - pretty sure he's in the throes of making a couple at the moment...

    @andycayenne @samsweeny123 right at this very moment :) Just drilled and glued all the keys for the two maple 7 string sopranos I’m working on at the mo. If you're interested, drop me an email: barnaby@waterpigs.co.uk

  2. My Gurdy Sheet Music listing is a bit old and tired in implementation and purpose as well as design. Currently re-building it as a much more flexible system with a much wider scope — I’ll be hosting my own tunes, and tunes I’ve transcribed as well as the trad. material which I’ve already got.

  3. Learning new trompette patterns with Gregory Jolivet, and decided to try to evolve a micro syntax for representing them in notes, so I can add some SVG or Audio-API magic afterwards.

    1 4 1 3 1 4 1 3 1234 1234 1234 1 3

    And a variation: 12 4 1 3 12 4 1 3 1234 1234 1234 1

  4. The second back is on after rather a stressful gluing session inside a small, dark shed with candles for light. Now I know a little more about what it must have been like to be a luthier in the Middle Ages.

  5. @sweden / StikoPer: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a> thats a tricky one. I think you need to wait and just feel it, the name will come to you :)

    sweden I am making two more at the moment, so I need to come up with three names!

  6. Today I’ve gone from having almost no wood to having almost all of my gurdy wood! Some exciting photos:

    Unpacked, grouped:

    Plywood for the wheels being cut:

    And best of all, a gurdy egg made from all the tape used to package the materials!
