Is the tenor guitar used in juju music related to this instrument?
See, for example, this article on King Sunny Adé.

- Interesting; I'd never heard of this. This site explains it as simply a guitar that plays single-note lines (maybe like a finger-picked ostinato), as opposed to the lead, rhythm, or bass guitars. This was supposed to have been first developed by Fela Kuti, then spread from Afrobeat to juju via King Sunny Ade. I believe the "tenor guitar" line would be played by a normal 6-string electric guitar. Badagnani 07:50, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Lou Barlow has never been known for playing a tenor guitar. he uses a uke, a small <= 6-string or a standard acoustic w/ only 4 strings (see http://www.flickr.com/photos/nailest/2445729285/ or http://www.flickr.com/photos/sidemouse/439724821) in addition to regular 6-string but not a tenor.

- Should we remove him from the article, then? Badagnani (talk) 04:06, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
What is this, a Martin ad?
I didn't delete anything, just made paragraph breaks, but there is way too much detail about Martin (and Elderly).
"Tenor guitars are normally tuned in fifths (usually CGDA, similar to the tenor banjo or the viola)..." So is that the CGDA that the viola is tuned in (C3 G3 D4 A4) ? Webrobate (talk) 14:51, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
- If you are asking what is the tuning of the strings, that is covered in the "Tuning" section of the article. If you are asking about manufacturers that make strings for tenor guitars, that I cannot help you with, but would be something to quickly mention in the article. oknazevad (talk) 13:56, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
