Let me introduce myself, my name is Jah and I am 37 years old. I live in Belgium and Sicily. I speak French, Italian so please excuse me for my English which is far from perfect.
I have always been attracted to art in general, sculpture, painting, drawing, photography and of course music. .
I learned flamenco guitar, a little bouzouki and the ukulele.
I have had a ukulele ECLIPSE CC4,a magnificent instrument, since 4 years but I never really took the time to learn the instrument properly, apart from a few chords… So here I am on this site to learn more about the ukulele!!
Hi my friend!
The bouzouki is a musical instrument widespread in Greece, of which it is often considered as the “national” instrument.
There are similar instruments in Turkey and the Middle East. The sound is produced by vibrating the metal strings with a plectrum. In bouzouki music, the tremolo effect, quickly repeating the same note to prolong the sound, is very popular.
I watched some videos. The sound is incredible and the instruments can be so ornate and beautiful. Thank you for your compliment. I love the middle eastern style of playing with the bouzouki. It’s definitely a sound I’ve heard many times and I just didn’t understand what it was coming from so thank you!
