5 Course Guitar Tabs
On this page you will find 5 course plectrum guitar tabs. The tuning is ADGBE which is the same as a standard guitar without the 6th string. The Baroque Guitar was tuned this way and suits Renaissance and Baroque pieces. It also suits plectrum playing. If you wish to sound a little more like the original Baroque guitar tunings I suggest that you change the ‘A’ string for a G string and tune it up to ‘A’. In this way you will have a re-entrant tuning with the bottom string ‘A’ an octave higher than normal. The original Baroque guitars had two strings per course and depending on the country of tuning either or both of the the bottom two strings could be tuned in unison an octave higher, or each string in the course an octave apart.
