OK, this is way off topic, but this was a VERY popular instrument on the East Coast, USA, during the early 19th-century. Sometimes called the English Guitar, its first publication comes from Edinburgh in 1758, and is full of traditional tunes, including these three. It was the sound of plucked strings while the banjo was embedding itself in America. Just thought you might like to hear it. It eventually died out when the so-called Spanish guitar arrived on the scene. It is tuned CEGceg (bass to treble), although I have it tuned a tone lower. My instrument dates from 1760, and has a 'watch-key' tuning mechanism.
