The Portuguese guitar from Lisbon is the smallest of the three traditional fado guitars besides the Portuguese guitar from Porto and the Portuguese guitar from Coimbra. Of the three, it has the brightest sound, reinforced by the traditional tuning of Fado Lisboeta in Si-Lá-Mi-Si-Lá-Ré, starting from the highest pitches.
