Hi every one

I am living in the West of Ireland knock village co Clare. I have been trying to play classical guitar for most of my life. Have an interest in 7 string guitar nylon, Ypres guitar and fretless classical.

Also known as a 10 string nylon guitar tuning design to improve resonance for all the notes. First six strings as normal and the 7th C below sixth string. The rest are tuned as follows Bb, Ab and Gb.

The cathedral guitar tuning is as follows 7th D, 8th C, 9th B and 10th A.

That would be a (Narciso) Yepes guitar. Perhaps a case of over-enthusiastic spelling auto-correct...
