Excerpts from "The Early Guitar: A History and Handbook" (James Tyler, OUP, 1980), describing the development of the vihuela, Renaissance and Baroque, and English guitars, with comments on tunings and playing techniques.

The Guitar in England

England did not play a major part in the development of the guitar. However, the history of the guitar and the \'English guitar\' (cittern) in England is not without interest. It is necessary also to look briefly at the development of the guitar elsewhere in Europe from the Renaissance onward.
