Tuning an Arabic oud to C# F# B E A D?
« on: April 16, 2015, 06:54:38 AM »
Hypothetically, is it possible to tune an Arabic oud to Turkish C# F# B E A D? I'm afraid it's not possible, but I thought I'd ask first, just to see what you people think!  Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Well, why don't you try playing your music on your Arabic oud using the regular Arabic C tuning? Tune it to B E A D G C, which is your familiar Turkish tuning, only one step lower. This way your oud is also safe, and you should be able to sound good too.
