They can be found on Ebay for much less which is where I ordered it from.

Lute to uke sounds intriguing. Is it tabbed or notation or both?

I have that book and really like it. Bear Dance, Schiarazula Marazula, Les Bouffons, and La Volta are the ones I'm working on. All easy enough for beginners and nice little melodies too.

Now I'm jonesing for a Baroqulele to go with. Just because...it's so cool. Did you get the tenor size? I'd love to know what you think of it when it arrives.

Thank you AB for the jukebox link. My CD with the book is skipping on some of the songs. I tried on the computer and on three other CD players.

I really like Lute to Uke, too. The arrangements are easier to play than most of John King's.

In a similar vein, you might like these for Renaissance/Classical.

Jamie Holding's site has some nice free arrangements and I've bought several of his e-books.

Michael Parmenter's site is a goldmine for Renaissance stuff. His PDFs are usually tab-only, but he also offers TEF files and you can download the free TablEdit viewer and print them with standard notation as well.

I have a tenor Baroqulele. Definitely has the coolness factor going for it. It's pretty well made (although I think the bridge is rather cheezy) and plays/sounds decent. But at the end of the day, it's just an uke made to look like something different. At that price point, I would say a Mainland is actually a better value.

Part of its charm is its unique rounded bowl-back shape, but that's also a drawback in my book. It is really hard to hold steady. Comes with a nice wooden strap button installed, and you really do need a strap with it (I used a bootlace). Even still, it tends to slide all over my gut. :eek:

I used to play the Renaissance Lute. What Lute players do is to put a piece of "Chamois" or suede type leather skin on your right knee (if you are a right handed player). This will prevent the Baroqulele from sliding left or right. :-)
