Vihuela Gets A New Top
The vihuela is a fascinating instrument, and somewhat confusing. There is a classical vihuela you might find in Europe and then what you might see here in Oklahoma – the one used frequently in Mariachi music. This one has been loved and played for years by the Mariachi Lopez, a family representing three generations of fantastic mariachi music. Time and a couple of accidental drops brought this one in for a new top. Very tricky, but as you can see it turned out well.
