Oud Teachers & Lessons / Re: Free oud lessons with Farid Al Atrash

Mate this is not just gold mine to you, but itís for every player who plays it with determination and passion, so itís excellent lesson, I really like each one of them and I will definitely share it all my friendÖ Thanks and I will ask you to share even more if you have.

AB I wonít call it impossible but itís fairly difficult, itís also dependent on the country we live in, as in many places like Italy and Europe itís easier to find one but in other places itís very tough, but I believe we can learn everything online with Youtube platform.

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.

Firstly I am amazed with the level of experience you are havingÖ. 20 years? Itís unreal but anyway solution for you now is online learning only, as there are hardly any good offline instructors, so whether try Youtube or look for an online guide, itís the best solution as far I can think.

Itís not important if you are keeping it at home or mostly going around common places, but for people, who travel at lot, itís necessary to have a strong case. I donít care about quality but it must be strong enough to handle any hard hitting.

If you want to use it as a single player then Oud is much easier while Darbuka is definitely not all that simple, hence we should go with Oud, but as an whole group of people, it is definitely Darbuka that I really like and enjoy above all.

I think the answer is connected to personal using, if we play it regularly then 1 year or at worst 6 months should be the time we should use it before changing, but itís just an opinion as I have seen people not changing it for years and still having it pretty good.

Canít say for sure about anything because it is dependent on teachers, I always have my friend to help me out as he is a very good player, itís always great having someone who we personally know guiding us through the work, it just makes thing so much better.

Frankly speaking I was expecting completely opposite when I saw the thread headline but then watching this guy, I thought it would be something serious, but this is really fun to watch and I have already watch it twiceÖ Thanks so much for sharing with us.

Doumbek, Darbuka Lovers / Re: Is Darbuka the greatest instrument?

Hi Saqeef, I donít know perfect answer but for me itís definitely a vital part of instrument collection, but then everything is complete without others, so the value of Darbuka is definitely more, but alone you wonít really find it that good, so thatís why you canít really call one instrument as perfect.

I am want to purchase a good Darbuka but at the moment I am just trying to learn via many sources whether itís from Youtube, Website or many other ways, but I am confused that when will I learn it completely? As average wise how long does it take?

Buy & Sell Darbuka / Is it wise to buy used Darbuka?

I am slightly confused as currently I have got an offer from my friendÖ. He is selling his Pearl Darbuka as he wants to buy another one and I am just trying learning so it is wise to purchase from him? He has used it for 8 months.
