Dear members,
In Italy it's midnight. Tonight I decided not to go out, but to stay home studying Longa Shaznaz on oud.
Oud is much more than a musical instrument to me: it's also something that helps me to be in touch with my inner self. I am really thankful to all of you, and especially to Mike. I spent so much time on this forum, and even if I don't know you, you have always been with me in very difficult moments also.
This website is one of the most beautiful things in my life, seriously: a community of musicians who don't fight each other, who are not in competion, but who keep on helping each other.
That's why I wanted to share with you a bit of my studying session.
Of course every feedback is welcome, especially if it's a a critic or a suggestion that can help me to improve.
Thank you for watching!

Beautiful spirited playing. Thank you! I feel the same about Oud and the site.

Playing late into the night.. alone with candles, tea or wine is the BEST

dear Danieletarab
I think your post is very nice.
I agree totally ...
and I think you're a great musician, and I really like your spirit ..
I am building my oud with great difficulty and after I would like to learn to strum it.
I hope you want to help me ..
I'm, like you, italian, a man of the island, and the city of the sea ..
Thanks and see you soon

since you're Italian like me, I rewrite it in Italian that I get better!

(I do not know if I can put posts in two languages, if this is not possible the moderator signals me that!)

caro Danieletarab
trovo il tuo post molto bello ed anche ricco di poesia..
lo condivido totalmente... penso anche che tu sia un ottimo musicista e mi piace molto il tuo spirito..
sto costruendo con grande difficoltà il "mio" oud e dopo vorrei imparare almeno a strimpellarlo.
mi piacerebbe molto se volessi darmi una mano con qualche consiglio o suggerimento..
io, come te, sono italiano, isolano e di città di mare..
grazie e a presto

Do you have a possibility to post it here or via youtube or soundcloud...or.....

Thanks in advance;-))
