"Let's figure it out step by step 1) First scale and tuning...  60 cm and G tuning is most common today I believe (just as renaissance lute). If you doubt about convinience, put a capo on the 3rd fret of your guitar and play some vihuela…"

Bill Brettschneider replied to Yuri Liman's discussion Low D string problem
"oh, one more thing, I like the sound of an unwound low A also. some people told me they wouldn't recommend it as it would sound "tubby" or something like that. I like it quite a bit."

"I would consider getting the low g and d strings maybe one long one of each, but buy a few more of the thiner ones. they will break or go false sooner."
