Hi Joe, did you buy the mystery guitar? Anyway, my wife will be working in KSA soon. I might follow to teach (not music) in an International University.
Yes, I am familiar with the oud. I wanted to buy one last time I was at Qatar-- but a bit pricey. Speaking of Moorish Spain, one can hear the influence of oud in their Flamenco.joelmalit wrote: ↑Sat Jul 15, 2017 6:41 amThis guitar is still available. I didn't buy it coz I'm not sure if it's a good brand or just a cheap one. Playing musical instruments is allowed here in Saudi Arabia as long as the neighbors are not disturbed by the noise. In fact the Saudis have their own guitar similar to the lute and it's called "oud" - I think it's the same instrument brought by the Moors to Spain when the guitar is not yet in existence.
