Oud

Some weeks ago my friend Russ and I and recorded a short acoustic guitar and oud duet. We wrote a piece based on some changes of Russ’s and produced a sketch of a tune. The reaction we got was out of proportion to the time we put in so we vowed to do more.

Last night we followed the same pattern but created a longer tune. We were recording it live in a lovely 500 year old manor house and the ambience of the room certainly helped. As my upright bass was handy I added some bowing and a few extra bass parts. We’ll follow this pattern again and hope to have an EP (it’s the year of EPs) out by Autumn.
