"Guitar" is a major category of guqin which belongs to the guqin.As early as the eighth and ninth centuries, there were Arab and Latin guitars, and the first guitar, music, was first born in the 13th century by king Alfonso x of castile.By the fifteenth century, another subclass of the lute system, the stringed guitar, began to rise, gradually rendering the original Arab guitar obsolete, while the Latin guitar evolved into the bivira.The most popular period in Spain was between 1535 and 1578.Lute also laid the foundation of classical music in the 16th century, and still holds a place in the subordinate categories of lute.


Before the Renaissance, the development of the lyre was weak.With the continuous creation and improvement of musicians.By the Renaissance, in the sixteenth century, the spread of lute and bivira was unprecedented.A number of musicians and composers appeared.Into the baroque period, due to the easy performance of Spanish guitar, it has been extremely popular among the people.Lute still achieved significant status during this period and produced the great "father of music" Bach and wise.Their two contributions to lute music are arguably unparalleled.Lute, bivira and the subsequent rise of the guitar are all important types of guitar strings, which have been mutually reinforcing and developing in terms of repertoire, playing techniques and production techniques.
Before the classical period, "guitar" had four complex strings and five complex strings. The drawback of the complex strings was that the large number of strings made it difficult to tune, so the improved form of five single strings soon became popular.In 1790, the germans added a sixth string, making the six-string tuning of the current EADGBE first available.The shaping of classical guitar hardware process originated from the improvement made by Spanish luthiers in the mid-19th century, which established the current 65cm national standard string length.In 1946, American scientist Bert augustin developed nylon strings and applied them to the improvement of the string materials of classical guitar, harp, lute, etc.Nylon strings could not only withstand higher tension and more dramatic physical changes, but also live longer, greatly improving the sound and volume of classical guitars, and almost completely replacing the more fragile gut strings.
