What tuning do you guys think it better for an oud?
« on: March 20, 2015, 04:21:01 AM »
Yes, I am a girl, and yes, I play the oud! And yes, I like to maintain and tune it myself :D
So, I have a question, which tuning do you think is better? Is FCDGCF beter than CDGADGC, for the cords? Or do you prefer something different?


smile all the time!

I honestly don't know. I don't really tweak my oud by myself, because I'm quite new to all this so... wouldn't want to ruin my instrument! haha!

You can tune your oud according to your own preference. However, I think this is also something that depends on what type of strings do you have, some allow a higher tuning, some not.

It depends on the oud. There are Arabic ouds and there are Turkish ouds. They are not the same. So, depends on the type of your instrument but it also depends on the type of strings you bought for it.
