More info

In its original form, the cavaquinho is an instrument with 12 frets and 4-strings, but there are some variants of the 6- or 8-string cavaquinho, the latter known in Portugal as "cavaquinho de tuna".

It has several tunings, being the  tuning of the city of Braga D-A-B-E (from high to low). Metal strings are now used, as well as other tunings, such as D-B-G-G, E-C#-A-A or E-D-B-G.

Use the proper string gauge for the tuning you will use as the strings are thin and are tuned with a high tension.
