The Guitarro is a small,
baroque, five-stringed guitarfrom Aragon, slightly larger than the requintoor cavaquinho. The instrument is also found in other regions of Spain, such as Andalusia, La Mancha, and Murcia.
Common tuning is B F# D A E, but this sometimes varies. While all five strings are usually single, the three middle strings can also be doubly strung to produce a stronger sound.
Never intended as a solo instrument, the guitarro typically provides plucked accompaniment to
Aragonesejotas and rondas.
