      <<< Akim has a six-stringed modern guitar, though it doesn't look
      terribly modern. I'd like to get him some sheet music for Medieval
      music so he doesn't just sit around playing "traditional Irish
      ballads" that are really only a couple hundred years old at most. This
      is in lieu of buying him a whole new instrument which he might not
      like or want to take the time to learn to play. >>>

      In the PERFORMANCE ARTS section of the Florilegium:
      guitar-art (41K) 8/ 9/94 History of the guitar by Ioseph of Locksley.
      Unfortunately, the server for the Florilegium died. I'm told that
      it may be back online tonight or tomorrow. So, I don't have the direct
      link for you right now.

      <<< The question is, what Medieval instruments, if any, are (1) six-
      stringed, (2) tuned to "Standard Tuning," that is, with the strings
      tuned from a low E, to a high E, traversing a two octave range—EADGBE?
      (I had to look these things up: I'm not a guitarist and if you ask for
      more information than that, I won't be able to tell you.) >>>

      Here is another, more general file in the same section on various
      medieval instruments:
      instruments-msg (128K) 7/24/11 Musical instruments.

      Here are some song sources:
      music-lnks (15K) 4/22/04 Links to medieval music and instruments by
      Dame Aoife Finn of Ynos Mon.

      muaic2-lnks (22K) 9/ 8/04 Links to medieval European music by Dame
      Aoife Finn of Ynos Mon.

        Thanks so much! This will help a lot. I'd still rather, I think, have an actual discussion with people who play, and hear from those who've researched but not (yet?) uploaded files), but this should get me started.
