Cemal Zuber Playing electric OUD
Video Rating: 4 / 5



  1. Turkish are tuned differently, and are smaller in size to Arabic ones.
    Also the styles are very, very different as well.

  2. cool. so i’m looking at oud’s now. what the diff between turkish and egyptian oud’s besides sound?

  3. Na, its a raga box.(tambura in a box).

  4. sweet. were you using the ravish pedal on this one?

  5. Thanks! I remember how I was trying to capture this musical moment in time, as the day I recorded this I had an idea to wear my goggles while playing my electric oud, and, this character was born. I recall doing about 25 takes until I was satisfied with the performance. Of the mode I’m playing in, I practiced the same musical scale for 6 months.

  6. brilliant!

  7. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is that makes Middle Eastern music sound so great, but I know I like it.

  8. steampunk is juvenile.

  17. The oud is a Arabic instrument, but is also featured in many near eastern musics. I guess that you could say that I.m paying homage to Arabic, and Turkish music in a American way.
