Feel "Oud" from the heart!
« on: December 31, 2015, 10:25:53 AM »
Sometimes I have an unexpected feeling about Oud. When you type the word “Oud” on Google search box, it gives you a variety of Ouds out there. At Oud for Guitarists, I am not talking about a type of wood or perfume made from it, but I am talking about Oud the musical instrument. It is an ancient musical instrument from the Middle East, which has been very popular in the area and called the King of Instruments. It has been played by the greatest musicians in Middle Eastern history for centuries.

It is finding its way over to Western countries in the last decades, and more and more musicians are picking up this instrument, for its unique sounds and unlimited possibilities of creating new musical fusion with it.

Some music makes you fall asleep and every effect in between. The Oud is not only a very dynamic and exciting instrument, but also it has a huge meditative effect and has been used in ancient history to create a relaxed state of mind  ;D
