I had an introductory course in Oud last year and it only lasted for four weeks and only two classes per week, so I pretty much barely learned how to do certain notes in different Maqams, but that's as far as my experience goes. I'd love if any of you could list some of the books that helped you become better. They can either be in English or Arabic, and thanks in advance!

Buy & Sell Oud / What to look for when buying an Oud?
« on: May 03, 2015, 11:30:39 PM »
I'm a newbie so I still don't know much about the instrument. My music teacher warned me about buying by myself. He said I need to have a specialist with me in order to determine the quality of the Oud in general, but he didn't dive into specifics.

So, I'm hoping there are experts here who can help me. What exactly do I need to test/look for when buying an Oud.

Oud Lovers / An Oud made from a drawer?

I'm in no position to debate its sound quality and how comfortable it is to use overall, since I'm no export.

But if this is possible to do, then by all means I shall try it. Oud is pretty expensive where I live and I can't afford one at the time.

Did you ever build your own Oud from similar materials? How and what resources did you use?

Introduce Yourself / Hi!

Glad to find a forum like this. I've been a huge fan of the Oud, and I even took some free lessons offered by my university in my free time, but it was just introductory and barely had any practical benefit for me. I hope I can learn from a forum like this.

So, hi!  ;D
