Watch the Tenor Guitar online guitar lesson by Marcy Marxer from Ukulele for Guitar Players

The tenor guitar or 4 string guitar has a 23” scale from nut to saddle. Tenor guitars were invented as the banjo craze of the early 1900’s waned. The tenor guitar gave tenor banjo players a new voice and with it new versatility. I love the tenor guitar and have worked with both the National Reso-phonic and the C. F. Martin companies to revive old style tenor guitars.

Tenors can be tuned in many ways. The most common tunings are the traditional C G D A tuning, the lower G D A E tuning or like the high 4 strings of a guitar, D G B E. If you are interested in more things tenor guitar check out my Sherpa Classroom right here at TrueFire.com.
