The Lutenist

Linnea thought I should try learning to play the lute so I purchased a beginner 8 course (8 rows of strings)
Renaissance lute. The instrument is daunting! What is it about the plucked string sound that is so inviting?
Here is a pen and Ink I did thinking about the lute players of the past.  Did you know the Lute came from the Egyptian 'Oud?...and that the Oud had it's beginnings from the Chinese 'Pipa'?
