I've just added a recording of Cantiga no 9 from the Cantigas de Santa Maria to my playlist. We performed it with different instruments, starting with my 4c guitar. I like the sound of the instrument in this kind of setting but realise that the instrument is of a later era.
What are the opinions about using the 4c-guitar as a gittern?
Should I acquire a gittern (i.e. build one...)?
I am not familiar with gitterns and playing practice.
What is a common way tot tune a gittern and is it (always) played with plectrum?
