My tip is to keep on practicing.  You know what they say about practice.  Well, it might not make you perfect.  But, thatís the only way youíre going to get anywhere near it!

Keep listening to middle eastern music, and good Oud players like Simon Shaheen, and Said Chraibi. Get it in your heart and soul.

I love middle eastern music, it's why I really want to learn! I have some basic knowledge from back when I used to play the guitar, I know this is different but at least I can hold an oud in my hands without dropping it on the floor! lol!

I do agree that practice makes perfect, but I still think a good oud teacher is way better than learning how to ply by yourself... It's not that easy, at least I don't find playing the oud easy at all!

My tip is to be passionate about the work, as it does not matter how much practice we do till we donít have the fire in belly, itís all time waste. If we have the passion for it then even with less practice we will do just fine.

Although Itís not easy to that but you need to bring passion into play, itís one of the key factors in anything, if we are passionate about what we do then itís always good and also you must continue with regular practice, itís the best way to go about things.
