    Leeds Piano Competition - Eric Lu

    oops. Best viewed on Keyboard for sensitive souls on Fingerboard.
  2. An extraordinary performance of the Beethoven 4th Concerto by Eric Lu. Listened to it live and I am still sitting in disbelief at such a mature performance from someone in his early 20's. https://leedspiano2018.medici.tv/replay/final-with-eric-lu/

    If you use the neck button chamfer to create 2 tiny triangles where it intersects the chamfer of the back It will help define the shape of the button.

    Is this a good book to read?

    I was taught by Juliet and have a signed copy. At the time, she used a propolis-based spirit varnish that was difficult to use as a beginner. I think the varnish chapter may have been co-written with her son. I agree with the earlier assessments.

    The white of the purfling comes though rather starkly. Brushing a water-based stain after gluing would make it less conspicuous.
  8. Are you able to print-to-file a whole thread as a single operation without multiple cut-pastes?
  9. I have not been able to download a thread in its entirety for some years now. Copy-paste across pages is so '20th Century'...and a pain in the butt.
