Title: Does an oud need to be tuned?
Post by: nobody-here on March 14, 2015, 04:33:20 AM
Just wondering, does an aud need tuning, like a classical guitar? You know, the assignment of different pitches and everything. Does the oud need tuning or not?

^ You're welcome. Glad to help :)

There are actually many ways to tune it, the article shows just a few of them.
Everything depends on the type of strings you have and it also depends on what you will sing on that particular oud.
