Thread Name: Bouzouki - GDAD or GDAE?
Subject: RE: Bouzouki - GDAD or GDAE?
I use GDAE but have strung in Unison for the G & D Also recently
put Elixir strings on it and its Wonderful (Fylde) To do this you
need to buy 2 sets of guitar Elixir strings as I haven't been able to
find them individually. FWIW The OLD English Cittern was 4 courses of strings in unison so thats what I'm playing! Modern Citterns are 5 courses. but I'm not sure whether they are typically unison or octave. Cittern / Bouzouki - Bittern / Suzuki, whatever!
