Hi Rajan,
There are many resources, it depends on what you are looking for : Playing, theory (maqams)... If you are interested in learning maqams, I can suggest to you the Maqam book (David Mualem) it's quite comprehensive, with good text and 40 demonstrations played by kanun. To know about the history, you can read The music of the arabs (Habib Hassan Touma). I'm sure that other member will suggest others resources for oud, websites... or others topics related to arabic music.
Good luck !
Regards,

Khalil

Making Music in the Arab World by AJ Racy is a wonderful book.

Maqam El Oud (Volume 1 & Volume 2) by Charbel Rouhana is a nice book about Oud.

My favorite videos on arabic music about maqamat and taqasim.D

I think you can understand a lot without knowing arabic.

Just to help you here are a few words that you will here a lot.

DarajÚ : place ( example: darajÚ-t el-Bayati: the place of makam bayati

Momkin: possible

Dokhoul: entrance

Kif: how

On the right of the page, the name of the maqamat

Rast
Nikriz
Bayati
Nahawand
Ajam
Kurd
HIjaz
Segah
Saba
