What follows is a list of various discussion lists on the web devoted to
the Renaissance cittern and other metal-strung, plucked instruments.
"Cittern.ning" Cittern Networking Site
Doc Rossi started the Ning discussion forum for cittern builders, players, enthusiasts, etc. The forum is free, easy to use, and highly recommended (and is probably the premier cittern networking site out there). Citterns of all types welcome! http://cittern.ning.com
The "Cittern Builders" List
The cittern-builders' forum was started on this site specifically for those who are interested
in discussing in-depth the process of building a cittern and woodworking tips
in general. The list is open to both builders and the curious, alike.
The range of topics includes other related instruments from the 12th through the
20th centuries, but the focus of discussion is primarily on the Renaissance cittern.
The old list has been superceded by the "Building and Construction " group on the cittern.ning.com list. To join, simply follow the link above, then join the "Building and Construction" group on the left-hand side of the page.
