Ultimate Guide to Classical Guitars and Lutes

The lute has been a part of instrumental music since the Renaissance and Baroque eras. The lute was extremely popular until the 1800’s. Then in the 1900’s the interest of the lute was revived. During this time musicians built lutes similar to the construction of classical guitars. Classical guitars are not guitars named for only classical repertoire. Classical guitars are early guitars of the same eras of the lute and more. The lute and the modern classical guitar hold similarities such as the finger style technique. The classical guitar also spanned across the classical, romantic, and modern periods.
