Need Help: Tuning 5 Course Medieval lute

Post by Fair Lady Aside »

Hi Everyone,

is there a good source for tuning instructions on a 5 course medieval lute? I've found a lot of information about lutes and some tablature. Unfortunately most of it deals with "Renaissance" lutes and later.

Any sites or book suggestions on proper tuning greatly appreciated.

I play Renaissance Lute which isn't much help.
It might be worth contacting the lute society as someone there will know...
