    I have calculated that on a normal oud, you can get about to 3 octaves if you are a normal musician . if you are capable on going to higher positions, that could expand a little, although these are just my calculations, and I need to ask about this

    not much point going higher, no resonance <_< , perhaps adding more strings is the solution, although the pegbox and the neck would have to be rebuilt <_< .

    I think that&#39;s a job for mr krishna :P

    got a nice link, for those who have real player,

    this is an excellent semi-improvisation, they didn&#39;t say which mode it was, sounds rather like minor to me. (if you have perfect pitch, I&#39;ld appreciate the tip)

    trying to find something in mp3 <_<
    even the clarinet improvisations are in real format :angry:, only the vocal ones and the violin bits are in mp3.

    ah well, this is an iraqi player, improvising in a turkish mode, using a very high tuning.

    hope you like it.

    Very nice! in fact I am a Persian Classical musician and I play in quarter tone scales and modes.
    my instrument is the Santur.
    I really like playing quarter tones but unfortunately since the Santur is a diatonic insturment, I am limited to a certain key (at least in each octave, I cant have B and Bb in the same octave) which takes away options.

    the Oud is actually an arabic name. the Persian name for it is Barbat (although it is popularized as Oud even in Iran these days.)

    Funny... 'Oud' is Dutch for 'old'
