Oud Videos & Sound / Yousif Abbas playing Iraqi Heritage
« on: July 12, 2015, 05:09:23 PM »

Really amazing playing here.  Such a diversity of sounds and techniques going on in one song.  What's interesting to me is around 2:35, I hear what sounds to my Western ear like a blues lick.  I can't tell if it was intentional, but I can't help but hear it that way.  Is my ear mishearing it?

Either way, this is a very cool video showing some excellent playing.

Oud Lovers / Equal Temperament?
« on: July 12, 2015, 04:54:30 PM »
So, Arab music does not follow equal temperament, and it's generally recommended to tune by ear to properly tune your Oud (and for the ear training practice).  Does anyone use equal temperament anyway, because of the ease of using a tuner?  I'm primarily a guitar player, and unfortunately my ear is not the best.

How about when collaborating with musicians on equal tempered instruments like piano? How about if you are playing in non-typical keys?  When, if ever, is equal temperament appropriate?
