Hello all ney lovers and wanderers
« on: May 18, 2015, 01:38:41 PM »
Im playing all kind of flutes, and a month ago I got an Arabin Ney from a friend who told me about its "mission impossible"
for 2 weeks I've been breathing into it, and I think Im doing fine till now : )

I tried to look for some guidance over the internet for further studying, but was surprised to find almost nothing on the net.
not guides, no tutorials and no books.
4 ney tips youtube clip maximum..

1. Does anyone here know of a place/book/website which can guide you through some first steps after cracking the how to make a sound challenge?

2. Does anyone here have a fingering chart for the Arabic Ney? I'm never studied music through classic platforms, but by myself, so I never really deepend my studies into notes, but I noticed the notes in Ney has diffrent names, diffrent harmony, not like regular flute or recorder.

anyone ?  :o :-\

I've been wanting to learn the nay for years now, but have been having trouble finding one that's a good nay at a good price in the key and style I want.

However, I've heard that this book called Beginner's Guide to the Nay, by Mahmoud Effat, is supposed to be the best English-language book about learning to play the nay. http://www.maqam.com/store/p/3313-Beginner-s-Guide-to-the-Nay.html It even comes with a CD to help you learn. I believe the book has finger charts in it, as well. When I finally get my first nay, I plan on using this book to learn with, along with any YouTube videos I might find.

hey guys
ueeii, there are 2 tutorial videos i posted here in arab instruments as to how to practice the ney in the beginning
hylian - i suggest to begin with D or E ney, and even plastic, if you cant afford the reed one
avel - i looked at the chard, its good, but missing the most important thing - the note names. the position when all holes are closed is called rast, and it is the tonic for rast maqam, and so on...

OK, thanks, I wasn't aware of that.
In this case, Mahmoud Effat's book is probably a better way to start (thanks, hylian).
The first few pages (including chart!) are available here.

Niri: I've been hoping to start with a D nay, since I've read that a lot of Arabic music is in D. I've been having trouble finding any websites that sell good Arabic style nays in D, and for a good price. I'm hoping that when Arab Instruments gets more nays in stock next time, there will be some in D. I'll buy one for sure ;)

Avel: Glad I could help you! :)
