English term or phrase: Guitar tuning terms EN-DE
Good morning!

I am currently doing a translation on guitar tuning and am not a guitar player myself. I would appreciate a URL for music-related terminology (EN-DE). The translation has to be back by Sunday night - so I would be helpful for any help that I could get today.

Thanks a lot!

Explanation:
Here are a few URLs, I hope they're helpful.
The first is a multilingual list of musical keys.
The second is also multi, called Cadenza, but I'm not sure how helpful this one is.
You could also try one of the larger online dictionaries, such as LEO (try http://www.iee.et.tu-dresden.de/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/wernerr/sear... or an English-only glossary such as Guitar Workshop (http://guitarworkshop.com/), and hope to piece things together from there by comparing with a German-only site, such as http://vini25.vkw.tu-dresden.de/~ruehle/gitarre.html, which is a guitar tutorial.
Sorry if this isn't helpful enough. Good luck, and viel Spass!
