Welcome to the Acoustic Guitar Community.
In this album I intend to post pictures of Portuguese guitars. After all, being Portuguese and having chosen to dedicate my preference as musician to this instrument, I feel it's my obligation to show it to other guitarists.

No, not at all, they DON'T sound similar to ordinary guitars, they sound like P-guitars. Et vive la difèrence!!!P-guitars have tone, tuning and right hand techniques of their own. When compared with ordinary 6-string or 12-string guitars, they lack the deep bass notes (lower note is D as the 4th string in an ordinary guitar) so, they are less self-sufficient than an ordinary guitar; and, due to their particular tuning, not all the keys are easy to play in; but, on the other hand, they are more brilliant and more expressive. Besides that, they are incredibly "fast" and have tremendous volume. They are not a good accompaniment instrument, but they are indeed great lead guitars... Have a look on the videos I posted in my page...
Very nice Luis! Do these sound similar to ordinary guitars?
