I don't have an oud of my own, but I know someone who does and they're looking for a teacher. So, I was wondering, is it possible to learn how to play with the help of a guitar teacher? Because oud teachers are like precious gems, you can barely find one :(


Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive!

I think it's possible, although the guitar and the oud are pretty different from one another.
By the way, there's also a website that can help your friend out, just google it, you'll definitely find it.

No too much, but I feel it helps in getting into the mode, as it does not matter which instrument we are playing, but getting into zone is important, so thatís where the guitar can be pretty useful practice for the Oud, but I am learning it on my own.

Itís obvious that you canít be learning exactly from Guitar teacher, as itís common sense that you donít drive train because you know how to drive a car, as itís obviously different thing, but it has some key things which are same, so you can learn the basic stuff but not the real part.
