Cemil Bey, Tanburi - Rast Zeybek Havasi

An attempt to hijack the guitar and a piece from the classical ottoman repertoire for my own purposes :P . The arrangement is mine. Apologies to the rast makam for brutally even-tempering it :)

Fantastic performance!
Great piece! I can just see two beautiful young girls dancing to this melody.
I really enjoyed your performance, such clear distinct tones and I love those little trill pull offs.
Thank you,
:merci:

What a lovely tune, never heard it before. :) Like it a lot though, your playing is clean and fluid with a nice feeling of rhythm. Sounds really good to me, and I will definitely listen to it more then once. :)

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. I think strictly speaking this is a dance for scary men rather than cute girls, but you never know in this age of female emancipation :)
Moderators, I do know what the subject naming convention regarding the composer's name is for the mp3 forums. The problem is that Ottoman Turks did not have surnames. Tanburi just indicates that the musician in question, though a multi-instrumentalist, made his name as a tanbur player, and according to Wikipedia:
By the late 19th century, "Bey" had been reduced in Ottoman Turkey to an honorary equivalent of the English-speaking address (not the British courtesy title) "Sir"

Thanks, Sxedio. I've just come across this, and it's a bit late, I know, but I've changed the format of the title in view of your useful remarks immediately above, and a bit of further research. Since "Bey" appears to mean little more than "Mr.", there is no point in treating it as the surname. The only given name of the composer seems to be Cemil, so that should come first and I've left the honorific with it. Tanburi is more of a nickname, qualifying the given name, so I've placed it last in the position we'd normally use for the first name. Not ideal, but more logical, I think.

Very enjoyable recording by the way!

Cheers Geoff! Indeed the only thing in there that is a proper name is Cemil, so in an alphabetic listing the composer should appear under C. I need to rerecord this as I found a nicer bassline for the latter part of this, will keep you posted.

Kind of reminds me of Zorba The Greek and the scenery of Crete.
