Lute




Singer with Lute The lute has a large pear-shaped body and rounded back made from wood of varying sizes, strung with gut strings and played with the fingers or a plectrum. There are three double strings known as courses and one single top string, a fretted neck and sharply thrown back peg box.

There have been several courses added and removed throughout the ages ranging from four or five in the 14th century to six in the 16th century.

The exact pitches varied with the size of the instrument, with smaller lutes being tuned A-d-g-b-e'-a' ("alto" lute) or G-c-f-a-d'-g' ("tenor" lute) and larger bass lutes being tuned D-G-c-e-a-d' or E-A-d-f#-b-e.

Many other stringed instruments originated from the Lute like the Mandolin and Guitar.
