The Russian guitar has been around since the turn of the 19th century. It differs from the Spanish classical guitar in that it has 7 strings and is tuned to a G major chord (D,B,G,d,b,g,d'). The Russian guitar lost popularity during the 20th century to the western 6 string guitar. Currently the instrument survives with the music of Roma (Gypsy) performers in Russia, and a small amount of concert guitarists (mainly in Russia).
