    Another hour long concert, great music! I think this is a Theorbo, not sure, incredible bass notes and a great player, Romano, that is the only thing I can find out about the performer.

    The second piece is really incredible! No idea of the name of it however.

    Yes it is really good, and though my wife is playing guitar quite extensively I can't remember having heard of him.

    He would be a great virtuoso in any century after him including century 21 IMHO.

    Does your wife play classical? Exclusively? Does she perform? Anything on myspace or youtube?

    Clicked on the YouTube link and got the piece, but with an X next to the speaker icon and no sound whatsoever, although the clip plays. Anyone have any clues as to why this happens and how to fix?

    Considering everyone else can hear it, sounds like you have somehow hit the 'mute' button. See if you get sound from other sources, play a cd or something or anything to check the sound in your system.

    Once you know you have sound then there is something in the link and they include mute buttons. You have to find it, it would be somewhere at the bottom of the screen. It's the little loudspeaker symbol, you just click on it for sound and a little window comes up that says either mute or unmute.

    If you're talking about the speaker icon in the bottom corner of the video, click on it and you should get sound (or a further click in the appropiate place on the bar that appears will give you sound). Youtube uses a cookie to 'remember' the last volume setting you used when you last visited the website, so if you (or someone) muted a video last time future videos will also be muted.

    Always remember, try single- or right-clicking on things as a matter of routine when you're using the internet. Use your eyes first, before your hand, just to avoid 'social engineering' viruses and malware. But in the vast majority of cases (and if you're not on 'dodgy' websites) and with an active mind, it is safe and instructive to root around in the browser and OS to solve little problems like this.
