Historic guitar tunings

Page history last edited by Andrew Alder 11 years, 5 months ago

16th Century

 

The guitar had four courses each of two strings. There were two tunings:

 

  • G - D - F# - B (Old tuning or temple viejo)
  • A - D - F# - B (New tuning or temple nuevo)

 

The courses were tuned in unison except for the lowest, which was tuned in octaves.

 

17th - 18th Centuries

 

See Baroque guitar.
